Forest Whitaker May Join Stallone’s ‘Expendables’


Not exactly how we missed it a few months back, but it appears that we are way late in reporting that Forest Whitaker is circling the wagons on Sly Stallone’s hotly anticipated thriller The Expendables.

Whitaker would play the CIA liaison for a group of mercenaries (played by Stallone, Jet Li, Randy Couture and Jason Statham) who are clandestinely sent to South America to overthrow a dictator.

The film sounds awesome, as many of my colleagues around the web have already noted. Great cast. Stallone’s follow-up effort to a kickass Rambo film. I don’t really see anything going wrong.

On another note, The Hollywood Reporter is also saying to day that a Nu Image/Millennium spokesperson told them that the casting of Sandra Bullock, which we previously reported, is “merely wishful thinking.” That’s code for “the deal just isn’t done yet.”
