Expendables 3 close to signing 4 new actors?

May 31st, 2013 by Marc Comments

The Expendables 3 cast is expanding… apparently. Seriously, is there anyone they havent’ asked?!

According to Deadline, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer has said Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are all in “advanced negotiations” to appear in The Expendables 3.

We have heard several times that Chan, Snipes and Cage were being sought by Stallone but the inclusion of Milla Jovovich is new, although Stallone did Tweet sometime ago that he wanted a  “Young Sigourney Weaver” type character in the movie – while she’s no Weaver, we’re guessing this is what’s happening here.

The Expendables 3: A Cast Of Millions is coming soon…

The Expendables 3 will be directed by Patrick Hughes (Red Hill). The cast of the last film included, in addition to Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Nan Yu, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Exactly who among those might be returning remains to be seen.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
