We haven't heard much on the status of The Expendables 2 lately, although a few new names have been mentioned to star in the sequel. Nu Boyana Studios CEO David Varod said in an interview that Chuck Norris and John Travolta will co-star in The Expendables 2, which is apparently shooting at Nu Boyana Studios in Bulgaria. Here's an excerpt from his interview below, where he mentions some of the confirmed actors to star in the sequel.

"Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke...who else? Of course, Bruce Willis. The director is Simon West, who is also a name. He is already here and has started working on the film. I believe the sequel will be better than the first movie."

Back in May, we reported that Jean-Claude Van Damme will play a secondary villain in The Expendables 2 alongside Bruce Willis as the main villain. Chuck Norris and John Travolta's names had not been mentioned to appear in The Expendables 2 before this interview ran.

David Varod also indicated that The Expendables 2 will start shooting at Nu Boyana Studios in mid-September.
