Sylvester Stallone is continuing to gather together every Hollywood action hero who ever lived for his ever-growing Expendables series. Sort of like Pokemon–gotta catch ‘em all! Lately, he’s added Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood to the list of possibles for The Expendables 3. However, it sounds like Eastwood may prefer to direct it, instead. Read on for more.
We already reported that producer Avi Lerner revealed Nic Cage has already been brought on board to join the cast, and apparently plans are afoot to add the other three, including Eastwood, as soon as possible. However, we all know Eastwood can be a bit unpredictable, and Sly’s plan to include him may now have a spanner in the works…
“He does?” asked Eastwood, when informed that Stallone wants him to join in the fun. “I haven’t had the opportunity to see The Expendables yet. I haven’t read any material.”
So when asked if he would consider taking a role, when Sly comes a-knocking, he replied: “Probably not. I’m probably more apt to direct something. Maybe I’ll direct Expendables 3.”
Imagine that. Clint Eastwood directing motorbikes flying into helicopters; it would certainly make an interesting change of pace, as TotalFilm mused.
And what of Steven Seagal, you might ask? And seeing as Jet Li has been in both films, it would make sense to get Jackie Chan and Chow Yun-Fat in the mix, and possibly Michelle Yeoh. We’ll probably be seeing more of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis in this follow-up, too.
Not only are we wondering who’s going to be in the Expendables 3, we’re also pondering over who might be cast in the first female Expendables movie, which is apparently going to happen.
Who would you want to see in an Expendables sequel?
