    Exclusive: No Go on Nicolas Cage & John Travolta on Expendables 2

    Sylvester Stallone already has his hook that'll get audiences back in for The Expendables 2. This time they'll deliver on the promise of him, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis kicking ass and not standing in a church making quips off one another for one scene to be played up in every trailer and TV spot.

    Nevertheless, Sly and helmer Simon West have been on the hunt for more past-their-prime (or the more politically correct phrased "veteran") action stars mixed with younger blood for the currently-lensing AARP-approved epic due in theaters next August.

    If you were hoping to see Nicolas Cage and John Travolta filing rank next to Sly, Jason Statham, Jett Li, Dolph Lundgren & Co, prepare to be disappointed. Despite attempts, sources tell TMT neither Cage nor Travolta will participate thus depriving the world of that Face/Off reunion. A deal for the former couldn't be worked out and word is Travolta "just didn't go for it."

    This is the week of casting no-goes on The Expendables 2 it seems. Apparently we weren't the only ones to get that memo. Earlier this week came word Mickey Rourke was sitting this one out and mere minutes ago Sandwich John Films got a hold of Antonio Banderas who confirmed while an olive branch was extended his way to participate, he cordially turned them down.

    A full cast list is rumored to be officially released later this week.

    this news is being spread around the web and this is the source of the report... yet I've never heard of this website... how is this a credible source whatsoever? A random blogger has just as much credibility as this report until it's actually official.

    seriously 'sources' tell us.

    well 'sources' told me that Bruce Willis just backed out of A Good Day To Die Hard due to scheduling conflicts and contract issues. Why don't we spread that around internet, just as credible as this websites report at this point.

    Well since YOU'VE never heard of this website, then it means it must not be true IHop.

    Maybe you should open a blog and post that Bruce Willis story, I'm sure it will end up
    all over the internet...

    If you've actually ever read a website before, they always use the term "sources" when
    describing...well a source of information. Does that mean that every website you read
    is not reliable. Logic. Get some.
