Back in May, an early synopsis was released for The Expendables 2, which indicated that Mickey Rourke would return for a cameo appearance as Tool. It seems that won't be the case now, since Mickey Rourke has stepped away from The Expendables 2 to join Seven Psychopaths.
Back in May, we reported Mickey Rourke is in talks to star in Seven Psychopaths, and it looks like this may be the actor's next project. Colin Farrell stars in Seven Psychopaths as a screenwriter suffering from writer's block. He finds unexpected motivation when he gets caught up in his friends' plot to kidnap a gangster's dog. Mickey Rourke will portray the gangster, while Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell play the writer's friends. Production is scheduled to start this fall.
