Ford? Eastwood? Snipes? And Nic Cage All in The Expendables 3?

If “The Expendables” producer Avi Lerner gets his way, he’d love to add Harrison Ford, Clint Eastwood, Nicolas Cage and Wesley Snipes to “The Expendables 3″, which is surely on its way unless “The Expendables 2″ tanks completely, which given the buzz among the manly men who enjoy manly man movies, probably won’t happen. While out on press junket to promote “The Expendables 2″, which opens this Friday, franchise producer Avi Lerner spilled the beans about what other big action hero names he’d love to see join his cast for the third go-round.

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].

Wow, that’s a lot of stars. These four guys in addition to all the returning ones?

It’s highly improbable Lerner is going to get Ford and Eastwood, though. I’m reasonably certain running around with a cannon shooting people is no longer something Eastwood enjoys doing with his time, not with a fairly healthy dramatic acting and directing career he’s currently having post his Dirty Harry days. Ford? Hmm, maybe…

Snipes and Cage, on the other hand, you can probably expect to sign up. Especially Cage. Given his legendary spending habits, I don’t think ol Cage can afford to turn down any movie, much less a big-budget one like the “Expendables” franchise. Plus, I’d love to see him play a crazy ass bad guy…

    The second I read Nic Cage I thought of Face-Off. He def needs to be a bad guy. Release Snipes from prison already! lol Snipes needs to be in this and my wish of Black Panther.

    • Dedpool

      Agreed!!!! Except for Black Panther, back in the day maybe but now there are much better actors for that role. Djimopn Honsou, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, and maybe even dude that played Gabe Jones. and others.

      • clarkspark

        Djimopn Honsou or Chiwetel Ejiofor, Yes. Good choices there.

        I just want Snipes back in action on the big screen! I’m pretty sure Snipes is never doing another Blade. :/

  • Dedpool

    Yes please!!! Bring it on!

  • justjoe

    Forget about Snipes. Michael Jai White is the next big thing. He should be the next Blade or Black Panther.

      As entertaining as Michael Jai White can be, I think his career is going to be stuck in the direct to dvd world because his acting just isn’t very good. I still think The Expendables series won’t be complete until they get Segal into one of them. C’mon now.
