Yesterday, we reported that Nicolas Cage is starring in The Expendables 3, news which came straight from Sylvester Stallone's Facebook page. Today, the actor has recanted that statement. Here's what he had to say in response to the news.
Nicolas Cage is not starring in The Expendables 3 says Sylvester Stallone
The Facebook page in question is reportedly a fan page that isn't run by the actor himself. The now-deleted post also mentioned Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford as possible new cast members. Nu Image/Millennium Films are currently seeking international buyers for the sequel at the American Film Market this week.
It isn't known if The Expendables 2 director Simon West will return to the helm, or if Sylvester Stallone may get back in the director's chair for the follow-up.
Personally, I think The Expendables 3 should take these mercenaries to Hong Kong, to do battle with legends such as Sammo Hung Kam-Bo and Chia Hui Liu. What do you think?
The Expendables 3 comes to theaters August 15th, 2014 and stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Harrison Ford. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes.
