Just when you thought the cast of the Expendables franchise couldn’t get any more absurd, producer Avi Lerner revealed to Total Film that Nicolas Cage will appear in the next installment of the series. Not only that, but Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, and Wesley Snipes are all being considered for roles as well.
“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 told the site. “I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters].”
So there you have it. If all of this comes to fruition, The Expendables 3 might have one of the most over-the-top and gleefully macho casts to ever be put on film. We just hope there is enough Metamucil to go around.
You can catch The Expendables 2 when it hits theaters this Friday.
