With The Expendables 2 coming out this friday, the rumor mill is abuzz with whose going to be in The Expendables 3; because that makes sense. Anywho, there is some pretty big names being thrown out there including: Nic Cage, Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, and Clint Eastwood. Honestly, I like all those actors, though Harrison Ford is the only really odd one to me. Don’t get me wrong, Han Solo and Indiana Jones are complete bad-asses. But, in the classical anti-hero way. I couldn’t see Indiana jumping out of a helicopter, or face-kicking someone’s head off. Neither can Clint Eastwood, but I think he could kill a man just by staring at them; and Nic Cage is so damn crazy, he can get in there just based off how wild he is. When Snipes gets out of jail, that’s a pretty big no-brainer anyway.
For now this is all a rumor, but producer Avi Lerner spoke with Total Film and said, “We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him,” Lerner said. “We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters].”
Lerner also went on to explain he wanted to bring back the most boring part of part one by saying, “And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy,” Lerner said. “I like Mickey.”
