Expendables Producers Looking to Cast Eastwood, Ford, and Cage Expendables 3
"The Expendables 2" will be opening in theaters this Friday, and creators are already discussing the plans for a third.
Producers are said to be trying to get some more big names to add to the franchise, including Nicholas Cage, Harrison Ford, and the legendary Clint Eastwood.
Avi Lerner recently said in an interview, "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, who was sent to prison in 2010 for tax fraud, is set to be released in July of 2013, so no word on whether or not that s possible for the time frame they are looking into, but it certainly would be a big score for the former action star.
There's also no word on whether or not Eastwood, Ford, or Nicolas Cage have expressed any interest in accepting the roles.
