Jackie Chan To Appear In THE EXPENDABLES 3
With a script currently being written and more big-name actors being sought, legendary action star Jackie Chan has revealed that he'll have "more than just a minor role" in the next Expendables movie. Hit the jump to read his comments on his inclusion in the action ensemble franchise.
With Lionsgate's The Expendables 2 being another box office success, work is moving forward on a third installment in the series which teams up various action stars from the past and present. It was recently reported that Nicolas Cage, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes were all being sought to join the threequel, with Clint Eastwood saying that he probably won't be in it. Afterwards, it was rumored that Cage was confirmed to be in the film, but then it was reported that Sylvester Stallone "had no knowledge" of the Ghost Rider star joining the cast of The Expendables 3. Now, we have one actor confirmed to be signed on: Jackie Chan.
At a press conference promoting his new movie CZ12, Chan confirmed that he will be in the next Expendables movie after being offered a role by Stallone. "Sly had invited me to be in "Expendables 2" but I was too busy filming "CZ12" and couldn't make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes," he said. He also told Stallone that he hoped the threequel would "run along the lines of a 'buddy-buddy' movie if he's in it, to which Sly obliged. The Expendables 3's script is currently in the works.
