Exciting news for fans of "The Expendables" franchise!
It is being reported that Sylvester Stallone has announced (via his Facebook page) that Nicolas Cage is set to join the cast of "The Expendables 3".
The producer/star of the series also says he is looking to bring Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes into the "Expendables" fold for the third film, which he hopes will also include the return of Mickey Rourke.
Here is what Stallone had to say:
"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 cannot 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."
"The Expendables 2" made $289,554,000 in worldwide box office sales.
There is no official word on the storyline for the film, but we will keep you posted as details on the third installment in the franchise emerge.
