This has just gotten ridiculous.
In an interview with Total Film today, Avi Lerner, the producer of "Expendables 3" revealed that they were in talks with several legendary action stars to join the already monstrous cast of the "Expendables" franchise. Lerner said that the studio has approached Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes to act in the third film. Lerner also said that Nicolas Cage has signed on officially.
Yes, incredibly, Nicolas Cage was the first one to sign onto the movie.
Via Total Film:
“We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him. We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters].”
“And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy. I like Mickey. And of course, all the existing stars [will return]”
Which is obviously fairly incredible.
If Lerner manages to get all of the above, along with all the returning stars from Expendables 1 and 2, all we need to know is whether it would be possible for us to buy our tickets now. We'll take 10, just in case we lose the other nine.
So, just to recap. If they do pull this off, here will be the list of people acting in Expendables 3:
- Sylvester Stallone
