Nicolas Cage Not Confirmed for 'The Expendables 3' Says Sylvester Stallone!

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.

"(I have) no knowledge of Nic Cage joining The Expendables 3."


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, Dolph Lundgren, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes.

    Still hope Cage does this, we all know he needs to be in a relevant hit film. Also still hoping for Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford to join, but a really great person would be Liam Neeson.

    If Stallone can read this, he'll be pissed off! Well then, harm has already been done. Hope he can still get Nicolas Cage and add Jackie Chan too. Jackie has been one of the long-lived action stars even before Jet Li became a star. Still hoping both of these guys will be added to the casts.

    @jasonkat Nic Cage has 12 movies in the works if i remeber correctly and it seems he is taking any movie that he is offered....which makes sense since he still owes the IRS 7 millioni dollers.

    @therealGoku I really wanted a good GR film and from all accounts this was supposed to be a grittier and more faithfull adaption....it was not. You are right, it was downright awful. GR2 made GR look like Citizen Kane.

    @therealGoku
    Believe it or not, i still havnt seen GR2, I dont wanna say "love" but..i loved the first 1, because at the time, it was something new & fresh. Same goes for gi joe: rise of cobra, another film i loved and from the looks of part2, it looks like it will be 50% better. Regardless of what everybody thought about gi joe or ghost rider, i liked em both. I have no clue how ghost rider:2 is, Im sure its watchable maybe not "re-watchable, but it cant be that bad i dont think.
    Cage has alot of great films but i noticed that alot of em are not re-watchable,

    Cage sucks ass right now, he desperately needs a box office hit, eve tho this wouldnt be his own having so much star power on the list, he will at least be part of the wolf pack, However After that, he will go back to making his own starting roles which suck because either A, he gets bad scripts, dumb directors that dont tell him how to act or what kinda character he will be playing, so he ends up bringing the same ol' role.
    At this time in his life, he should atleast be making hits by now.
    Hope with this movie, he will have more confidence w himself.
