Simon West - The Expendables 2 Director Wants Sean Connery For Sequel

Director Simon West has one final casting dream to fulfil if he is given the go-ahead to make a third Expendables movie - he wants Sir Sean Connery to come out of retirement for one last action role.
The moviemaker stepped behind the camera to helm The Expendables 2 with a slew of Hollywood's most famous tough guys including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Bruce Willis.
Talk is turning to a possible third film, and West admits he will try to persuade the former James Bond star to get back in the acting game.
He tells Britain's Press Association, "I don't know who's left (to include in a third film). Sean Connery would be great to bring back from retirement. I don't know if he wants to do it, but I'd love to have Sean Connery."
West goes on to reveal the movie's big stars often found it difficult to share the screen with their Hollywood rivals, adding, "That was very interesting because they're not used to having shots quite so wide, because I had to fit in all these big stars and I wanted to shoot them all together instead of just lots of single shots.
"They weren't used to sharing the screen with so many other big stars, so that was tough for them sometimes. Also they're firing guns and having fights - they have to be careful of each other because they're not dealing with stunt men, they're dealing with other movie stars."
