UPDATE: EW has reached out to Nicolas Cage's people who say that while Cage is interested in the project, there is no official deal in place yet. The official line says, "He’s interested, but we’re waiting for it to come together."
The Expendables 2 added a number of big action star names to the franchise, including Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, and Chuck Norris (not to mention expanded roles for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis). But where does the franchise go from there? Who else is left that the crew wants to see get involved? Today we learn that not only has one new cast member been confirmed, but that they are still going after three other big names.
Sylvester Stallone gave an interview with Spanish news source El Pais and it would seem that he has confirmed Nicolas Cage will be in The Expendables 3. What's more, if the direct translation of the quote is to be believed, they are still looking to have Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke join the crew. Here is his quote, as translated into English via Google Translate.
The the fact that they are looking to Rourke is interesting. While Cage, Ford and Snipes would all be new to the Expendables family, Rourke actually played the character Tool in the first movie.
