EX2 Production to Move to Hong Kong Instead of China

This was breaking news on many sites in Hong Kong/China today. According to various Chinese language news sources, the EX team will be shooting in Hong Kong and no longer in mainland China. Apparently production was not able to obtain the necessary permits to shoot in mainland China and will have to move to Hong Kong instead. Filming should start early next week.

It's hard to get a proper translation of the articles but many of them are also mentioning Willis &
Schwarzenegger, and it's not evident to conclude whether they are said to be part of the cast travelling to Hong Kong or simply cited as the big name actors playing in the movie. Stay tuned for more news to come soon...
Update: I had one of my Chinese friends translate the articles and he tells me that  according to the Sina Daily News which is a huge news paper in China, Stallone, Willis, Schwarzenegger & Lundgren are all said to go to Hong Kong soon. I would take this with a grain of salt though, I'd wait until we get a more official confirmation. 

Other info, they will film in a factory in Tuen Men for 4 days, so the total production time might be longer. Here's a video showing the factory where they will be shooting.

  1. 4 days not Chinese shooting complete, but, 4 days in a factory in Tuen Men (New Territories of Hong Kong).

  2. video : a factory in Tuen Men


  3. I translatet the link in the sources (dailynews.sina.com)with diffrent translators and got this: According to Hong Kong's Apple Daily reported that Bruce Willis (Bruce Willis), plus Oceanus Schwarzenegger (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Shiwei Si Stallone (Sylvester Stallone) star in "Lethal Reggie 2" (The Expendables 2) days will go to shooting in Hong Kong, when the film producer who is Stallone, Jet Li and Dolph Lundgren and other members of death squads to Tuen Mun will be shooting a desalination plant with a large melee scenes of brutal dictator, an estimated take four days, the group will leave Hong Kong

  4. If this is true it means more screen time for Arnold and Bruce which is excellent!!!

  5. I asked my friend (who is from China) 10 times if the article says they'll all be going to Hong Kong and he says this is how he understands it, but again I'd wait to hear from a more official source than just the Chinese newspapers.

  6. PLEASE let us know if you hear anything more on this!
