Jean-Claude Van Damme is in talks to join the musclebound stars of The Expendables for a sequel, according to the action man’s longtime friend.
Sheldon Lettich, who wrote and directed Van Damme’s 1991 hit Double Impact, insists the Belgian star will sign on for the movie – as long as Steven Seagal isn’t involved in the project.

Lettich tells movie news website, “JC seems to be leaning towards appearing in the sequel, as far as I know… If Steven Seagal is not in the sequel. From what I’ve heard, Seagal won’t be (in it) because of… producer Avi Lerner, who had a few bad experiences with Steven.”

The first action-packed Expendables movie, starring Stallone, Jason Statham, Eric Roberts and Dolph Lundgren was a hit last year.
