Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer revealed that Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes and Milla Jovovich are in “advanced negotiations” with the producers to join the cast of “The Expendables 3.”
Also, a short synopsis of the third installment has been added to its IMDb page:
The third installment of the action-adventure franchise that follows the exploits of Barney Ross, Lee Christmas, and their associates.
Although not officially confirmed, it seems to be a no-brainer by now that Jason Statham will reprise his role as charismatic Lee Christmas.
In a recent interview with Collider, he said, “Yeah, I’m back regardless. There’s no question. I mean, we have such a laughter in those films and the action is just…you can get away with anything. It’s so over the top. What we sometimes lack for in story comes back in something else. And people are just lining up to be a part of it. It’s great.”
Production on “The Expendables 3” is scheduled to begin this August with a release date set for 2014.
We can’t wait!
