"The Expendables 2", a cult action movie starring Bruce Willlis, Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme is to be filmed in Bulgaria September.
"The director is Simon West, who is also a name. He is already here and has started working on the film," Bulgaria-based NU Boyana studios CEO David Varod told Novinite.com in an exclusive interview.
He stated the sequel would be better than the first movie.
George Clooney and Ben Affleck are probably going to shoot their new movie project in Istanbul instead of Sofia, Varod also revealed.
He pointed out that Bulgaria has the potential of becoming Europe's tom filming destination, but only if the proper economic incentives are in place.
The NU Boyana CEO declared he has met with high-level government officials, who have vowed to help the company to further develop the country's film industry.
