Jean-Claude Van Damme for The Expendables 2

'The muscles from Brussels' will line-up alongside another host of stars for the sequel.

He will join Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone in the follow-up to the action film with Nicolas Cage and John Travolta also rumoured to be interested in joining the cast.

The original title saw a team of mercenaries given an assignment to take down a corrupt military leader and a rogue CIA operative on a Latin American island.

It boasted an A-List cast with the likes of Jason Statham, Jet-Li and Mickey Rourke and it seems the sequel will be following the stellar-cast trend.
