Sylvester Stallone is on a mission to reunite "The Expendables" dream team for another explosive adventure.
"We're at work on it," Stallone, 64, confirmed to CNN at the Hollywood premiere of Jason Statham's "The Mechanic."
"Because you have about five different scenarios, and you try to figure out which one will work the best: what area, the kind of stunts, and most important, what is the heart of the film? What is the reason for the mission instead of just guys running around — some purpose. That's the hard part."
The first "Expendables" starred Stallone, Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture as a group of mercenaries sent to South America to assassinate a dictator. Stallone jokes that Statham, 38, won't be getting much action the second time around.
“Unfortunately, Jason has a terrible accident in the first scene and we just talk about him for the next two hours," he says. "He doesn't know that yet, so don't break it to him.”
