Hollywood’s tough guys — Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jason Statham and Dolf Lundgren — will be in town for the Israeli premiere of The Expendables 2 next month, according to a report in Yediot Aharonot.

The five action stars are expected to arrive by private airplanes and stay for just 24-hours. Film producers Avi Lerner and Kevin King Templeton will also attend the event.

The premiere is set to be held at the G City Cinema in Rishon Lezion, just outside of Tel Aviv. The film stars will hold a press conference during their quick stopover and will give interviews to local media.

The premiere will take place on August 8, with the film’s general release a week later.

The first installment of The Expendables, which was released in 2010, banked over $100 million in the US and over $170 million worldwide.
