Its official. We've long known that Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan and Wesley Snipes were all wanted for the action franchise sequel The Expendables 3. Today, it has been announced that they are all in "advanced negotiations" with production slated to start this August. One new name has been added to the mix, and as expected, it is a female.

That's right, Resident Evil mainstay Milla Jovovich is joining the cast, which has been predominately male, with the exception of Nan Yu and Charisma Carpenter in The Expendables 2.

No further information has been revealed about the new characters included in the script for The Expendables 3. It can be expected that at least one of the four new additions will be playing a villain, long hinted to be Nicolas Cage's role. More casting announcements are also expected in the near future. Might we see Milla Jovovich reunite with her Resident Evil co-star Michelle Rodriguez once more? Its possible.

Relative newcomer Patrick Hughes (he has one action film titled Red Hill under his belt) will direct from a script by Oscar winning screenplay writer Sylvester Stallone, who will continue as the leader, heart and soul of this franchise, which sees no end in site.

The Expendables 3 comes to theaters August 15th, 2014 and stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes.

    Finally glad to hear that Wesley Snipes is going to be joining the cast! Good to see Sly add a legend action star Sniped resume speaks for its self in his body of work over the years! He's a bad ass doing his own stunts and believability.

    Hmm! i dunno with this one, i loved 1&2 but nic cage just doesn't to it for me. Im cool with everyone else and ive heard rumours of a female spin off so Milla would be a great choice for that but i just cant get my head round nic cage!! personally i think hes a rubbish actor and he just doesnt fit in with Sly/Arnie etc. I hope Sly knows what hes doing lol x

    Great choice for director and good to have a different director a film, and see where Patrick can take these characters! Expendables 2 was a f*cking ride and a half, my favourite between the two.
