Though much of the key cast is gone from the first installment, Channing Tatum returns, joined by newcomers Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki. Bruce Willis is also in talks for a role.
Production begins later this month in New Orleans, with Paramount eyeing a June 29, 2012, start date.
Goggins, recently cast in Steven Spielberg’s Abraham Lincoln biopic as progressive Democrat Wells Hutchins, is nominated for a supporting actor Emmy for his role as Boyd Crowder on FX’s “Justified.” He also appeared in “Cowboys & Aliens” and stars in the September release “Straw Dogs.”
Goggins is repped by APA.
