“Oh Mickey you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow our minds…”. That was our initial thinking when Mickey Rourke was lined up for The Expendables 2. Turns out that Rourke wasn’t that fine with the amount he was being paid and has pulled out of filming for the action sequel.
The follow up to 2010’s hard hitting ‘who’s who’ of the action genre was set to see Rourke reprise his role as tattooist Tool. His decision not to reappear alongside co-stars Statham, Stallone, Lundgren et al is apparently financially motivated and Rourke will now instead be appearing in Martin McDonaghs Seven Psychopaths alongside Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken.
We’re a big fan of Micky Rourke but can’t help feeling that the new arrivals of Chuck Norris, Van Damme and Liam Hemsworth among others will go some way to softening the blow.
