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?
