Jean-Claude Van Damme has reportedly been cast as one of the main villains in the sequel to last year's ensemble action film The Expendables.

It had previously been suggested that Van Damme was under consideration for the sequel, despite turning down an appearance in the first film.

According to Movieweb, Van Damme has now personally confirmed his involvement with the film via regular collaborator Sheldon Lettich, who directed the actor in the both Double Impact and Lionheart.

The Expendables director Sylvester Stallone has openly admitted that he also wants to have Bruce Willis reprise his role from the first film as a villain in a much more significant role.

Last month, Stallone confirmed that he would neither direct or write the sequel in order to put more focus into his role as the film's lead character.

The Expendables 2 is currently scheduled for release on August 17, 2012.
