Nicholas Cage confirmed for Expendables 3… more names to follow

November 6th, 2012 by Marc Comments

There have been so many rumours about The Expendables 3, but finally we’ve got a confirmation…

Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that Nicolas Cage will be in the third movie in the insane action franchise. He also confirmed that, as creator of the series and star, he is looking at other cameos… Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, John Travolta and Clint Eastwood have all been rumoured, but so far Stallone has only confirmed Cage.

On his Facebook page he wrote: “We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two. We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group. Hopefully we can realize to Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke.

“That is the great mission of the producer. We will continue with the same narrative scheme, the agility and the frenzy, which are inherent to the saga. What will definitely be the last? I can not guarantee. In principle it would be two deliveries, but the affection of the people encouraged us to work on a third.

“I guess as long as we amused ourselves by offering fun and people, we can continue playing ‘The Expendables’. For now we are not as expendable as it should and as some critics want.”

Keeping in mind the lack of writer and director, we’re going to store this info away until later, but I’m not afraid to admit that I had a fun time with the sequel this summer…

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….
