There's little denying that Sylvester Stallone and Jet Li are two of the biggest action stars of all time ... but Jason Statham? Sure, why not? At this point the guy's done three Transporters, two Cranks, a War, a Bank Job, an Italian Job and a Death Race. Hell, he's even done his own Conan-style "swords & sandals" entry, so yeah: I'd call Jason Statham one of the biggest action stars in the world. And good for him.

So where was I? Ah yes, looks like all three action stars (a hulking American, a slick Asian, and a badass Brit) are seat to team up for Millennium Film's The Expendables. If this kind of team-up sounds a little familiar, that's because Millennium pulled the same thing by getting Pacino and De Niro together (again) for Righteous Kill. Stallone will write and direct, and after that he's expected to do another Rambo sequel for the Millennium boys.

According to THR, the plot will go a little like this: "The main characters are sent to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator to liberate the population. Their team is "expendable," hired to do jobs that no one else can or will." So bascially it's Rambo teaming up with a slick Asian and a badass Brit. Sounds like fun to me, though. Nothing wrong with an ensemble action flick, and we don't see enough of those these days. Where's the Dirty Dozen and Kelly's Heroes remakes when I need them?
