Pierce Brosnan agrees to future Expendables sequel
Could one-time James Bond, Mr Pierce Brosnan, be heading for The Expendables 4?
It's a fair bet that this summer's The Expendables 3 won't be the last we see of that particular franchise, and it seems that already plans are afoot for at least one further instalment (and we're not talking about the female-led spin-off, The ExpendaBelles).
That's certainly the impression we get from Pierce Brosnan at least, who has revealed that he's been asked about appearing in a future film. Chatting to Shortlist, he said that "the offer has come in for the next Expendables. I just worked over in Bulgaria with Avi Lerner who makes them".
Turns out that Lerner said to Brosnan that "I'd love to have you" in an Expendables movie. Brosnan's response? "Why not? So we'll see... I have no idea which one it would be. I just said yes."
Our guess would be that it'll be The Expendables 4: this is hardly a franchise that messes around once it's got things into place. But we'll keep you posted as we hear more.
The Expendables 3 is released in August. Our (detailed!) look at the Pierce Brosnan's finest movies can be found here.
