Milla Jovovich and Nicolas Cage Officially in Talks for 'Expendables 3'

The cast of The Expendables franchise is getting out of control. Sylvester Stallone has already confirmed that he's handing out roles to Jackie Chan and Wesley Snipes, and there's been talk that he might get Steven Seagal into the mix. But now two new names have been revealed as officially being in advanced negotiations for The Expendables 3. Nicolas Cage is now in talks to join the cast after being named as one of the wanted stars by producer Avi Lerner awhile back, and a bad ass chick is joining the testosterone fueled action ensemble in the form of Resident Evil and The Fifth Element star Milla Jovovich. Awesome!
There's no new details on the story or anything, but the news comes from Deadline citing Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer talking to analysts this morning. Stallone has been busy on Twitter engaging fans and announcing news like Red Hill director Patrick Hughes being recruited to take on this third installment in the big action franchise, so there's likely plenty more news to come. We're still keeping our fingers crossed that Harrison Ford might get tossed into the mix somehow, but the cast is already pretty damn packed, so that might just have to wait for The Expendables 4. Sound good?

It's going to be the most extraordinary action-packed-cast ever. And no, they are not great movies, but who really cares?

I hope Milla is a kickass villain.

Wasn't there going to be a female expendables film in the works for sometime now? Well the cast for 3 is shaping up to be better and better, I enjoyed the first films for what they are, fun action packed films filled with boat loads of cheesy movie references and great throwback dialogue. That's what I like about The Expendables, the main thing is everyone gets to have fun with their roles. One actor I am really hoping that will be in one of the expendables films is Jeff Bridges. Other than that it would be fun if they got Morgan Freeman or even John Goodman in the cast too.

Why would Jeff Bridges, Morgan Freeman, or John Goodman get a role in an Expendables film? The whole point of them is to resurrect action stars and those three are far from Rambo.

If Cage is in, Travolta must be.

The cast IS shaping up to be better and better! Jovovich will be good casting, as well as Gina Carano--if she's asked! Nic Cage would be in his element with his over-the-top persona! I hope Seagal signs on! So far so good, although nothing is for sure, yet! In addition, Sly needs to call MIchael Dudikoff and secure a plum role for him! The 'Expendables' crew needs an "American Ninja". Make it happen, Sly!

If Milla is good enough then I want to see Lucy Lawless.

I'm down with that.

The beautiful and talented Summer Glau has played two of the most iconic characters in recent sci-fi history (in Firefly/Serenity and in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). That should be enough to be in The Exependables 3!
