Sylvester Stallone Confirms Nic Cage For THE EXPENDABLES 3; Responds To Fans And Critics
The Expendables franchise definitely seems to be one of those things that you either love or hate, but any action movie fan simply can't deny just how much fun they really are. Bringing together the actors best known for their contributions to the genre, the films have so far offered a tongue in cheek and explosive nod to a genre which dominated multiplexes in the 80s and 90s (only to now arguably be replaced by superhero adaptations). Taking to his official Facebook page, star Sylvester Stallone has issued the following statement about the planned third instalment, confirming that work is moving ahead on the sequel whether some critics like it or not!

The beloved action star has issued a statement confirming that Nicolas Cage will star in The Expendables 3 and that they are indeed hoping to include both Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes. Stallone also takes a swipe at the critics who weren't too kind towards the latest instalment.
We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two. We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group. Hopefully we can realize to Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke. That is the great mission of the producer. We will continue with the same narrative scheme, the agility and the frenzy, which are inherent to the saga. What will definitely be the last? I can not guarantee. In principle it would be two deliveries, but the affection of the people encouraged us to work on a third. I guess as long as we amused ourselves by offering fun and people, we can continue playing 'The Expendables'. For now we are not as expendable as it should and as some critics want.
