Sly Stallone 'confirms' Nic Cage for Expendables 3
In an extraordinary Facebook post, action man Sly Stallone says Nic Cage is destined to appear in The Expendables 3...
It's weird to think of unreconstructed men of action like Rocky Balboa or John Rambo using the internet, much less posting cute pictures of their dogs on Facebook, but then the actor behind those personas has long been a chap of many talents.
Having successfully wrangled an entire generation of fellow action stars into one theatre of war in this year's Expendables 2, Stallone has taken to Facebook to talk about a third movie. The Expendables 3, Sly reveals, will come with an added touch of Nic Cage madness - and he's also hoping to entice Harrison Ford and old Demolition Man sparring partner Wesley Snipes into the fold.
Stallone's post is so unique it would be a crime not to replicate it here in full, so here it is.
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 realize to 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 frenzy, which are inherent to the saga. What will definitely be the last? I can not guarantee. In principle it would be two deliveries, but the affection of the people encouraged us to work on a third. I guess as long as we amused ourselves by offering fun and people, we can continue playing 'The Expendables'. For now we are not as expendable as it should and as some critics want.
More news on The Expendables 3 - and the involvement of Cage, Ford and Snipes - as we get it.
