Chan, Snipes, Cage and Jovovich in Negotiations for The Expendables 3!
Source: Deadline
May 31, 2013
Deadline is reporting that Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer mentioned this morning that actors Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are all in "advanced negotiations" to appear in the upcoming The Expendables 3.

Chan, Snipes and Cage have been on Sylvester Stallone's radar for the film for some time as rumors of their casting have been floating around for a few months. Stallone has also spoken previously about wanting a "Young Sigourney Weaver" for the film, could that be the role Jovovich is up for? Check back here for confirmation on the casting soon.

The Expendables 3 will be directed by Patrick Hughes (Red Hill). The cast of the last film included, in addition to Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Nan Yu, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Exactly who among those might be returning remains to be seen.

Still no word of Seagal. There is almost two months left till they start filming, so he has time to make it :);)

I think Nicholas Cage will be a really good addition to the cast. He's made some excellent action films over the years plus he's like Seagal in that he's almost a genre in his own right, I know I will often see a film just because he's in it.

Mel Gibson the villain? Does this mean Seagal is out or not? Please Stallone give us a twitter update, because everyone is guessing right now.

Mel Gibson would make an excellent villain, a worthy adversary for Stallone and his team.

This doesn't definitely mean that Seagal isn't in the film, he could be playing a member of Stallone's team, another supporting role or still could be part of the bad guys, for example as the main fighter.


There are still a lot of rumours going round, after all both Vinnie Jones and Tom Sizemore have also been mentioned as playing villains in the film.

Really glad to hear that, after Stallone, Schwarzenegger is one of the biggest names in the cast. I hope that he gets a much bigger role this time, which should be made easier by fact that some of the film is being shot in LA.

As well as potentially Milla Jovovich, looks like we might have Gina Carano possibly facing off with MMA fighter Ronda Rousey.
The potential cast list is getting astronomical. I hope that Sly is more focused with his script this time. Less jumping around, cut out a lot of the awful humor. He's got to make the most out of all involved. That will mean sacrificing the likes of Couture and Crews probably. I'd hope the film can get the tone of Fast 6 and the length. That was over 2 hours long, but at least they fit people in reasonably well and got the most out of their villain. Plus despite the length, it was so action packed it never dragged.

They've got to get the third one right. I enjoyed the first two but they were frustratingly flawed.

Thanks to The Arnold Fans for the update.
http://www.thearnoldfans.com/news/2...stallone-talks-ex3-and-rambo-vs-commando.html

TheArnoldFans: With the next Expendables, I’ve heard that it might go sci-fi and other rumors..

Stallone: No, I thought of everything. I was throwing everything out there but I was talking about Rambo (the next one) in sci-fi. What do you think? But we finally found the right template for it and I found us some new blood. We have a great director and the best stunt coordinator in the world. I said we’re going to make this like there’s no two other Expendables and that this is the first one. And we got Mel Gibson, nic Cage, Jackie Chan and Weslie Snipes and now I have FIVE NEW guys that you have never heard of.
