The Expendables 2 is due out this week. I am personally looking forward to it as I love all those action stars and a bit of over the top action is always a great way to spend some time at the cinema with friends.
It turns out that producer Avi Lerner is currently planning The Expendables 3 and is after some big names. It looks as if Nicolas Cage may already be involved and Lerner would like to get Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood on board as well.
My mind is blown.
“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]”
Snipes is currently in prison due to making fraudulent tax refund claims and is due out next year. I imagine he would be up for a role in something like this to get his face back out there. Plus he an Stallone have the Demolition Man factor. Ford and Eastwood I am not so sure. It would be great to see them both in it. Especially Eastwood going face to face with Arnie. I suppose it all depends upon the role they have to offer Eastwood as he seems to be a lot more selective in his roles compared to Ford.
Just having Cage in the mix makes the prospect of more Expendables very exciting. This kind of over the top film would suit Cage’s manic side rather well.
How do you feel about the possible casting for The Expendables 3?
