A few weeks ago news emerged that The Expendables 3 was already in the works and producers were trying to line up the likes of Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford for the movie. Now Sylvester Stalloned has shared his thoughts on his own personal Facebook page, and has confirmed Nicolas Cage will be taking a major role in the next adventure.
He’s also confirmed that the inclusion of Harrison Ford wasn’t a pipe dream, as he, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke may all be up for the movie. There is no mention of Steven Seagal, who’s also been rumoured for the film, and the previously mentioned Clint Eastwood seems to be out of the running as well.
Here’s what Sylvester Stallone had to say, “The Expendables 3: We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two. We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group. Hopefully we can realize to Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke. That is the great mission of the producer. We will continue with the same narrative scheme, the agility and the frenzy, which are inherent to the saga. What will definitely be the last? I cannot guarantee. In principle it would be two deliveries, but the affection of the people encouraged us to work on a third. I guess as long as we amused ourselves by offering fun and people, we can continue playing The Expendables. For now we are not as expendable as it should and as some critics want. Sly Stallone”
John Woo is currently being eyed to direct this latest installment, with Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham already confirmed to return.
