Expendables 2 hasn’t even raked it’s haul in from the box office yet and already the Internet is abuzz with chatter and rumour over cast members for a third installment.
What is official is that plans are currently being drawn up for Expendables 3 by movie producers and during an interview with Total Film producer Avi Lerner some names were dropped as possible inclusions for the cast of a third installment. He said:
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].
Snipes is of course currently serving time for tax fraud and is due to be released on July 19, 2013, just in time for the film to shoot. Of course all of this is rumour and if The Expendables 2 tanks at the box office the chances of any of this becoming a reality would be very slim indeed.
