For the most part, everyone is happy with the casting of the Expendables films. You have a lot of big names on the screen, and the action never stops. While most of the bigger names have been contacted for roles in these movies, there are a select few that never got the same opportunity to make a comeback.
Well, that’s about to change with the B-Team
The B-Team is a film that is being handled by Don “the Dragon” Wilson and Michael Dudikoff from American Ninja. Other names include Cynthia Rothrock and Jeff Speakman. However, there is a huge catalog of names that may be added to the roster as well. They include Richard Norton, mark Dacascos, Billy Blanks, Jerry Trimble, and Loren Avedon.
You might be wondering how everyone will share the screen, and Don Wilson has the answer to that.
” there’s a lot of bad guys and good guys in it, there’s room for anybody thats going to be available. They would only be in for a few days and then out, the ones I listed, we would have to be in New Guinea the entire shoot but the other actors can come and go. There’s plenty of action and the game plan is to get as many guys as we can get in. I literally know everyone of them!’
Want to know more about the story? Give this synopsis a read:
Far from the excitement of Port Moresby in PNG, jettisoning skyward is the awe inspiring Volcanic Rim of Rabaul. This Ancient and beautiful place has an intriguing and tumultuous history. Deep in the jungle/forest near Rabaul’s base, a group of archeologist unearth a highly-developed, ancient civilization. Among the amazing relics found, a mysterious amulet is discovered that is believed to hold long forgotten technological secrets. Secrets that could threaten the welfare of the planet. This amulet had remained forever lost, until now.
When world powers learn of this discovery, rogue groups from around the world race to capture the amulet and its secrets. The amulet’s secrets would give the owner great power. The Prime Minister of PNG requests that the President of the United States send an elite team of Military operatives to return the amulet to its rightful place. Rising to the call for action, the President dispatches both an elite team and a backup team of action movie heroes (Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Cynthia Rothrock & more). They enter PNG under the guise of making an action film, when in reality; it is their mission to return the amulet. They are THE B-TEAM and this, is their story.
In order to keep up the facade that the B-TEAM Members Wilson, Rothrock and co are just shooting a movie, they bring their family members along as added cover. While the Team risks their lives; their families discover the extraordinary beauty and sites of PNG. Through various missions, chases, fights, streaks of good luck, streaks of bad luck and treks through the jungle (Shenanigans, etc.) The heroes get close to securing the amulet while appearing to be making a film. The elite team ends up serving as a distraction to the rouge groups, etc while the B-Team-ers make exceptional progress.
So, there you have it. Personally, I’m excited to hear about this project. Hopefully some of the actors get a second wind in their careers and the action is solid. Something makes me think that the fighting will be better because they won’t have the big budget, but we’ll see. It’ll be fun to see everyone sharing the same screen, even in the B-list arena.
Are you guys excited? Who would you like to see?
