Now that 'The Expendables 3' is officially a go, our attention now turns to who exactly will be coming back into the fold for this beloved action franchise? Aside from the primary stars, there have been rumors that the studio was trying to get some newbies to step into the fold -- Nicolas Cage, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Clint Eastwood and Mickey Rourke. Now, after all this waiting, one of them as been confirmed!
One day, the curious daughter of a prehistoric family leaves her cave, prompting a catastrophic event that opens them up to a whole new world of bright colors and strange creatures.
This is a match made in crazy-movie heaven. Richard Kelly, the writer-director behind 'Donnie Darko' and Southland Tales,' will be writing and directing 'Amicus,' which has Nicolas Cage set to star. It's a true life story about murder and justice, with Cage playing a lawyer (which - to be fair - doesn't sound that out there).
Despite their best efforts, 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' didn't reboot the franchise as the studio and filmmakers hoped. In fact, it was almost as cheesy as the first film. But here's a movie we maybe would've watched: Nic Cage - before the Ghost Rider VFX was applied - looking like some kind of 'Tron: Legacy' skeleton/clown.
Though 'The Expendables 3' isn't a given yet, virtually every action star from our collective youth shows up in ‘The Expendables 2.’ Planet Hollywood partners Stallone, Willis and Schwarzenegger are present. Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme get in on the fun this time around. They join contemporary butt-kickers Jet Li and Jason Statham. If they were to move ahead with 'The Expendables 3' we have a short list of action icons we’d hope to see on screen alongside this cavalcade of macho talent – and from what we hear, four such grizzled veterans might be ready for their glorified cameos.
Remember that awesome Nickelodeon show 'The Angry Beavers' that we either were totally obsessed with as children or we watched late last night with our best friends Ben & Jerry? If you answered yes to one of these instances, you'll be happy to know that we've actually found an 'Angry Beaver' in real life.
