Eastwood, Cage, Snipes and Harrison Ford Up for 'Expendables 3'?
This week The Expendables 2 hits theaters with all the action, veterans, explosions, blood splatters and one-liners fans are expecting. And if all goes well, it sounds like The Expendables 3 may not be too far behind. Total Film chatted with producer Avi Lerner, who reveals they're already trying to lock down more names for the next round of action, and fans will not be disappointed. Lerner says, "“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 also] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison," and, "we’ve got Nicolas Cage." Wow!
Obviously, it's pretty early on to consider any of these guys truly locked in to star, especially since a third film hasn't even been greenlit yet, but considering the crew that came together for this second outing, including Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis (the latter two with more sizable roles than their cameos from the first film), then I'm sure they can pull it off. Cage was rumored for the second film for awhile, but it never happened. Oh, and Lerner also says, "And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy." So that sounds like quite a cast, and should make for a very crowded poster. But when are we going to get Jackie Chan in on this franchise?
