Stallone: Nicolas Cage joins The Expendables 3


Following the worldwide box office success of The Expendables 2, Sylvester Stallone and his team are now moving forward on The Expendables 3, with Nicolas Cage joining the geriatric gang of action men, as first reported by JoBlo. The news comes from, which has the quote from Sly (roughly translated to English):
“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 can not 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.”
Indeed, it certainly sounds like the wheels are already turning on casting. Meanwhile, Adi Shankar’s all-female Expendables riff is well underway, casting Gina Carano in a leading role back in September.
