Now that “The Expendables 2” fared better than the original film with both critics and audiences, it’s time you braced yourself for more installments. Negotiations for the third film are already underway.
With Chuck Norris definitely out
of the picture (he said so himself), producers are looking to bring on board many other aging stars who might be tempted to do one last, insane action movie.
Avi Lerner, producer on “The Expendables 2,” confirms
they’re thinking of getting the likes of Clint Eastwood and Wesley Snipes on board.
“We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him. We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison,” Lerner says.
“I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters]. And 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],” the producer explains.
“3” is on the way, just as is a female version of the film
. With this in mind, how soon do you think we will have an “Expendables” overdose?
