With The Expendables 2 about to his cinemas, the film's producer talks of his targets for the third instalment.

The Expendables 2 is finally almost with us, and as a consqeuence, promotional work for the cast and crew is also well underway. In a recent interview, producer Avi Lerner revealed that they already have Nic Cage on board to showcase his unique stylings, and here's what else he had to say to Total Film about the other big names on his wish-list:

“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 to play one of the characters. And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy. I like Mickey. And of course, all the existing stars [will return]”

I don't know about you, but the thought of securing those names is a fine one. The prospect of Snipes and Stallone sharing the screen again, in a Demolition Man reunion, is enticing all by itself. It should be made compulsory that Snipes has to peroxide his hair for the film. I'd be surprised if Eastwood and Ford would be up for it, but if their roles are similar to Schwarzenegger's and Willis' in the first movie, it could prove to be an easy pay day for them.

It's worth noting that the film hasn't been green lit yet and it being so largely depends on the success of the second instalment. We'll have an idea of just how that's going to perform by the end of the weekend, though...

Exbendables 3 needs to have BRUCE CAMPBELL, Michael Biehn, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christian Slater, Oded Fehr and steven seagal as good guys and john travolta doing his funny crazy bad guy thing!

CARL WEATHERS! CARL WEATHERS! CARL WEATHERS! CARL WEATHERS! CARL WEATHERS! CARL WEATHERS! CARL WEATHERS! CARL WEATHERS! Maybe Brigitte Nielsen. And Cynthia Rockroth too, but that goes without saying obviously...

We need Al Leong and Sven Ole Thorsen as henchmen.

Yes! We so need Tobias's acting coach in it.

I'm glad they didn't mention Steven Seagal as I can't stand him. Wesley Snipes would be great as a villain just like was in Demolition Man. I think Carl Weathers would be a great addition as well if he is still in the acting game.

The need to get Michael Ironside to play the villain and instead of Eastwood and Ford who are too old now, they need to get Jackie Chan, Carl Weathers, Kurt Russel, Travolta and Dwayne Johnson

Michael Dudikoff!!

Sorry but I dont know any of those actors

Danny Trejo and James Buckley (The Inbtweeners) as Jason Strathams brother.

and you have my pity :-) Especially Campbell and Biehn!

Harrison Ford, Clint Eastwood, Mel Gibson, Kurt Russell, Densel Washngton, Vin Diesel, Viggo Mortensen, Clive Owen, and George Clooney

Loving the calls for Carl Weathers and Michael Dudikoff (nice thinking Jon). Add Mark Decascos to that list Rutger Hauer, Christopher Lambert, Michael Biehn, Marc Singer, Sonny Landham, Sho Kosugi, Cynthia Rothrock, Bill Duke, Jason Scott Lee, Philip Rhee, Ice-T, Ice Cube hell even throw in some of the old Bonds. Might not be 80's people but they've all dabbled in the action movie genre
