Big Names for The Expendables 3

Posted on August 13, 2012 at 11:21 am by Justin Cavender

The release of The Expendables 2 is just a few days away, but there’s already talk of the next one. Total Film had a chance to speak with producer Avi Lerner, who dropped some pretty big names for the possible threequel.

During the interview, Learner said, “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. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage.”

If fans of Mickey Rourke are upset about his absence from The Expendables 2, they may be in for a treat. Lerner went on to say, “And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy. I like Mickey.”

The Expendables 2, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis hits theaters on August 17, 2012.

Are there any other big names you would like to see? Make a list and Geek Legacy will get it to the right people. We know a guy…

    • Mr. The Plague

      I'd like to see Rutger Hauer as a villain. He's so creepy and made a ton of action movies in the 80s.

    • Rudy del Rio

      I say make Harrison Ford the villain. It would be a nice twist.

    • Blazer

      "Always bet on Black." Signed the mega casino built from all the jacks that get drunk in Vegas after watching Passenger 57 and get creamed at the roulette table.

    • Sean Connery! Cinema magic!!

    • JediJay

      Ben Stiller needs to be in these movies. I mean they're already making a mockery of the action genre by trotting out these old ponies. Might as well make it official.

    • Eric

      I say make Eastwood Stallones mentor gone rogue. Throw in Jease The Body Ventura and I'll gladly give you 10 bucks.

    • Edgyarmo

      Hmmm I'm thinking Jaws, Sauron, and Lyle Alzado. Make it happen.

    • Two words; Gary. Busey.
