An Epic Cast in the Works for “The Expendables 3′?
The Expendables 2 isn’t even in theaters yet, and producer Ari Lerner is already teasing us with possible casting choices for the yet-to-be-made The Expendables 3.
In a new interview with Total Film, producer Ari Lerner revealed, “We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him,” Lerner said. “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].”
So far, Cage is the only former action movie superstar on the list who has officially signed on. And we can probably assume that Wesley Snipes won’t have anything better to do. But Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood? Dare we dream? Will the lure of an all-star action film be strong enough to bring either Ford or Eastwood out of semi-retirement?
The Expendables 2 arrives in theaters on August 17, and stars Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Stathm, Jet Li, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Liam Hemsworth.
