( 4UMF NEWS ) Nicolas Cage Joins Expendables 3:
As the world gears up for the action star summit that is The Expendables 2, producer Avi Lerner is looking ahead to the next installment in the testosterone-fueled franchise — and he has already convinced one major star to join the team.
The producer also is circling a number of other icons of Hollywood machismo, with an eye towards further expanding a dream ensemble that already includes the likes of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris.
“We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys,” Lerner says. “We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison.”
In the sequel, opening in theaters on August 17, the band of mercenaries reunites for a revenge mission against Jean Vilain (Van Damme), who killed one of their own and is threatening the world with a deadly weapon.
