Expendables 2 Picking Up Speed - Stallone Not Likely to Direct

The LA Times is reporting that there is definitely some movement on the sequel to The Expendables, and that the first film's star/director, Sylvester Stallone, is not like to direct the second installment of the new action franchise.
Reports the LA Times, "The follow-up movie is a priority at producer Millennium Films, where it's being developed by Stallone, the creative force behind the original. But Stallone, who both starred in and directed the 2010 summer hit, isn't, at the moment, planning on helming the new movie. Instead, he's been meeting with directors to tackle the sequel, said a person who was briefed on the project but was not authorized to speak about it publicly. The script for the new movie has been written by David Agosto and Ken Kaufman, the latter of whom counts the Clint Eastwood adventure Space Cowboys and family comedy Curious George among his credits, said the source. (Stallone co-wrote the script for the original with David Callaham.)...Some of the casting speculation for a possible sequel has centered on Bruce Willis getting a larger role, fueled by Stallone's tweet last summer that he wanted the actor as a 'super villain.'But maybe more intriguing is the prospect of Arnold Schwarzenegger making an appearance: The former governor had a walk-on part in the first Expendables. But he has a lot more time now that Sacramento has made him, well, you know...."
