In this sequel to the 2010 action film The Expendables, Willis returns for another appearance as Church, an undercover CIA agent. Church recruits the group of mercenaries known as “The Expendables” to complete a mission. But when one of their members is murdered, they seek revenge and experience the added difficulties that come with operating on enemy turf. Director Simon West:
It was pretty amazing when I had all the big guys together. We looked down the call sheet of the names, and never before have they been all assembled in the same film – let alone in the same scene. I would pinch myself halfway through the day as I was directing Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone and Jean Claude Van-Damme all in the same scene, all fighting, shooting, whatever they were doing. It was an action guys dream come true, really.
