Tropic Thunder doesn't deserve to even be whispered in the same breath as this film's premise and cast.

This was the sort of concept that I thought Tarrantino was going with Inglorious Bastards. Even before Oceans 11 came along, Tarrantino was talking about the lack of big name hollywood team ups and how he'd like to put them together in a dirty dozen situation.

Oh well, times change.

Unfortunately Arnold role is a "IRL cameo". He's playing himself aka Governator Arnold.

QFT!!!

I'd switch out Lundgren for Norris any day of the week.

Yeah. The producers should just go for thick-skulled broke and cast Steven Seagal, Mr. T, Hulk Hogan,and Ultimate Fighting "stars" to round out this acting powerhouse of a cast.

....and lets not forget the need of 10 or 20 "power" songs from the group Survivor....and a touching between-bone crunching ballad from Frank Stallone.

- They need to get Chuck Norris in on this as well

-Stallone has to yell out while wiping out a whole division of bad guys with a M60 machine gun in one hand and expended bullets flying every where.

- Bad Puns every where. For example, If they stick a bad guy to a wall with a knife/sword/ ink pen/ popsicile stick, etc...... they have to say something like "Stick Around"

- They have to have a cool aerial insertion scene. These guys are so bad ass they don't even need parachutes. They just bounce off the ground with their heads, wipe the dust off, and get back to kicking butt

- They have to threaten the lead villian by telling them in deep gravely voice over a radio/phone something like "I'm coming for you!" And then kill them in the most over the top violent way possible while saving a their child/family member/ fellow POW, etc......

I really do want Chuck Norris in this too. Right now the rumors look to be that Lundgren and Jet Li are going to have a fight scene, I'd have prefered Li to line up against Chuck's round house kick!

Afterthought: I'd do this cast and this basic premise...

Sly Stallone
Arnold (non-cameo)
Chuck Norris
Jason Statham
Jet Li
Samuel L. Jackson
Dolph Lundgren

Stallone, Arnold, Norris and Jackson would all be old buddies from Nam, I'd set Norris up as the leader of the squad... at least when they were official in Nam. Special forces awesome etc. Jet Li would be Chinese Secret Service who has ties to a past "adventure" Stallone's squad had been on. Lundgren would be former Russian KGB and like Li's character would have ties to Stallone's squad in past "adventures". Statham would be a new young gun MI6 agent who pulls all of them together for one last mission. Statham's character, being the newcomer, would be the "audience in" for the film's world. We'd have exposition from his character's POV.

Didn't Jet Li say he was no longer doing martial arts movies? So how does that work...if the movie isn't a martial arts movie, he can still do martial arts in it?

I'll be livid if they actually take this movie seriously. I hope they're inspired more by Team America than Platoon.

Danny Trejo has joined the cast and he might very well be playing the main baddie:

Wow it seems Forest Whitaker is in it too. His role is probably minor but still a very good choice for a secondary character. This is going to be the ultimate man's movie. Those warnings in the article are funny. LOL

Its going to be the greatest movie of all time. Probably.

I'd give anything to get Mr. T in on this too. And Carl Weathers, lets get all Rocky's opponents!

Totally! Mr. T and Carl Weathers!!! +1 for my vote that they get a cameo.

And William Shatner should be the Mercenaries PR guy or something, the business side of things dude... pure Denny Crane mode. LOL
