The Expendable 2 hasn't even been released in theaters yet, but it's not really surprising to hear that producer Avi Lerner is already prepping up for the third film in the franchise. I think we all expected that to happen. What we didn't expect was who might end up being in it! They've approached some more incredible big name actors to join the production!
Lerner has revealed that they've already talked to Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, Nicolas Cage and Wesley Snipes about being in The Expendables 3! Here's what he told Total Film in a recent interview,
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].
I honestly didn't think they could get a more badass cast than who they have for the upcoming sequel, but it looks like I was wrong. It would be insanely epic if they actually got Eastwood and Ford to join the already crazy awesome cast.
What do you think about the cast additions they want for The Expendables 3? Do you think they'll actually be able to get them in the film?
