Earlier this year Bruce Willis said in an interview that he would soon be joining Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger to shoot a very special scene for The Expendables. Now according to Ethelmae’s Blog the scene was shot last weekend and having witnessed this historic movie event she described what went down on the set:
After Arnold, Bruce and Sly went through the scene a couple of times they all 3 headed off to wardrobe and make-up. at 8:10am with three cameras rolling the biggest action icons of our time went to work. I thought it was electric in Brazil when all of The Expendables stepped on set – but today was atomic!!!! the whole crew was mesmerized as we watched the three of them play off of each other in a pivotal scene that sets up the whole movie. And while I can’t/don’t want to give too much away I can tell you that Arnold’s character is Trench and Bruce is Church, the scene was shot in an empty church without extras and minimal set dec and it has tension and humor – what more can a girl ask for! Sly was in top form as a director today and was in total command. Bruce and Arnold were consummate professionals at all times – we got through the scene quickly without compromise. In 6 hours we did wide shots, close-ups, turned around…the whole nine yards…pretty impressive. Very Clint Eastwood.
I can’t wait to see this scene. It was probably too much to ask for all three to appear in a big movie together, however an ‘electric’ scene will be good enough. We have around 6 months to wait before Lionsgate unleash The Expendables, but in the meantime you can watch the trailer below.
