Sweden's (and Scandinavia's, at least in our eyes) foremost action star, Dolph Lundgren (Venz in A View to a Kill (1985) that we made an interview with in June 2006), reprises his role as Gunnar Jensen in The Expendables 2. The sequel to the box-office success, The Expendables, opens in cinemas worlwide during the summer of 2012.

Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.

About the film:
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Screenwriters: Sylvester Stallone, Dave Callaham
Genre: Action
Premiere: August 22, 2012
Running time: 1 hour 42 minutes

From Sweden with Love follows the production with messages from Dolph:

October 9, 2011:
"Hello from Sofia, Bulgaria! - I just finished the first week of shooting. Great to be together with the old gang again. Gunner Jensen has cleaned up his act a bit, now he's just an unpredictable drunk!
I shot some cool action scenes at the studio with Sly, Terry and Randy , but next week things get really interesting when The Governator, Bruce Willis, Van Damme and Chuck Norris show up for some major ass-kicking."

December 9, 2011:
"Wrapped the Bulgaria shoot after two long grueling months, filming will resume in China around mid-January."
