While Novak Djokovic, not vaccinated against Covid-19, is threatened with being expelled from Australia a few hours before the first major tournament of the year, we take this opportunity to remind you that the tennis player almost played in “Expendables 2 “!
Novak Djokovic is in turmoil. The Serbian tennis player, not vaccinated against Covid-19, is threatened with being expelled from Australia just a few hours before the first Grand Slam of the year. While the visa of the world number 1 has just been canceled a second time and he will be fixed on his fate on Sunday, we come back to this day when he shot a scene from the action movie Expendables 2!
In 2012, “Djoko” added a rather special line to his CV by filming a short scene from The Expendables 2. For about ten seconds, as part of the impressive airport attack between Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger , Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris and their brothers in arms to an army of terrorists, the sportsman fought with great blows of… racket!
“It’s one of the craziest things I’ve done in my life” declared the Serbian tennis player at the microphone of the show 60 Minutes, came to meet him on the set. Offset -ridiculous, some would say-, the sequence was finally discarded from the final cut by director Simon West. But you can (re)discover it below!
As a reminder, a fourth part of the Expendables saga is currently being filmed. The film will bring together stars from previous opuses (Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture) and newcomers (50 Cent, Megan Fox, Andy Garcia and Tony Jaa). No theatrical release date has yet been announced.
