I’m not going to say I didn’t enjoy The Expendables 2, however it wasn’t as charming as the original title nor did it have the same grittiness that many enjoyed. It did make tons and tons of money and I did enjoy the way it added more over-the-top action and thrills along the way. Bruce Willis and Ahhhhnold were a nice touch.
News from Deadline today mention that former 90’s action star, now making a new movie every month Nicolas Cage is in talks to join The Expendables 3 cast. Nic Cage is such an over-the-top actor that his addition to this cast makes the most sense of all. Other actors joining the cast as well is Jackie Chan and Wesley Snipes (fresh out of prison!) as well as Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich.
Sylvester Stallone is writing the script and he’s hired Red Hill director Patrick Hughes to helm the film.
The four new actors join Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and the rest of the crew.
And if you needed a reminder as to why Nic Cage is perfect for this film, I give you the best Nic Cage scene of all time.
