During an interview with the Spanish newspaper El País, Sylvester Stallone confirmed that Nicolas Cage would be in the third film of the franchise. Sly was also hopeful for Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, and the return of Mickey Rourke. (Rourke turned down his appearance in The Expendables 2 to do Seven Psychopaths).
In the words of action-star Sylvester Stallone, The Film Stage posted this key excerpt from the interview, “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 get 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 frenziness, which are inherent to the saga. I can not guarantee if it will be the last. In the beginning there were going to be only two films, but the affection of the people encouraged us to work on a third. I guess as long as we amused ourselves by offering fun to the people, we can continue playing The Expendables. For now we are not as expendables as it should and as some critics want.”
So far there are no words on what Cage’s character will be like, lets hope it combines all the characters he’s played, along with all weapons he uses bear his visage in some way.
‘Will we see Cage swinging a chain with a mad-like stare? Let’s hope so.’
