‘The Expendables 3′ — Who Should Join the Action Star-Studded Cast?
Though ‘The Expendables 3′ hasn’t been given the official go ahead and ‘The Expendables 2‘ hasn’t even premiered in theaters yet, there’s still pretty loud chatter about a third installment to the series. There are even some new names being tossed around for hypothetical parts.
We recently learned that producer Avi Lerner reportedly already “got” Nicolas Cage on board for the project, which would keep the Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Norris-infused cast, but there are a couple other action stars he’s considering.
“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],” Lerner told IGN. On top of Rourke, he’s also imagining parts for action heroes Harrison Ford, Clint Eastwood and Wesley Snipes (who, by the way, is currently serving a three-year federal prison sentence for tax evasion).
Seriously, who else are we missing here? It seems like every guy who ever starred in an action movie has either made an appearance in the franchise or been considered to make an appearance. Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme… Which other celebs could you see joining the team? We’ve already mentioned our pick, Mel Gibson, but who is on the docket for you? Let us know by voting in our poll below and sounding off in the comments.
