Director Simon West must be puffing on a celebatory stogie after hearing that Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jean-Claude Van Damme have been added to The Expendables 2 cast. It's every action aficianados dream made real, in true campy fashion, but for fans of the highly anticipated sequel there's an added bonus of awesomeness to the mix: A mano y mano battle between Sylvester Stallone and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

To say that these two weren't a part of some of the biggest brawls in the late-eighties to mid-nineties is an understatement. To see these two in the ring, so to speak, is something that has kicked the octane level in The Expendables 2 up a few notches. Sly is looking to give all those down-and-out fight heroes some shine time, as he recently told Entertainment Weekly that he wants to get John Travolta and Nicolas Cage for some Face/Off frenziness. 

Our question to all of you guys out there is this: Has Sly Stallone and co. bitten off more than they can chew? If not, who else would you like to see face-off on the big screen? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. The Expendables 2 is in development and also stars Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Jet Li, and possibly Donnie Yen. They are aiming for an August 17, 2012 release.
