Update On THE EXPENDABLES 3 Casting; Milla Jovovich Negotiating For Role
Wesley Snipes (Blade), Nic Cage (Ghost Rider) and Jackie Chan (The Karate Kid) are all confirmed to be in "advanced negotiations" for the next Expendables movie. Additionally, Resident Evil's Milla Jovovich is also in talks to join.
This morning, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer offered an update on the third film in The Expendables series (via Deadline). He confirmed that filming will begin in August, and he also said that Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan and Milla Jovovich are all in "advanced negotiations" to join the star-studded ensemble. We previously heard Sylvester Stallone hint that Snipes was on board/in talks, and it was previously rumored (though not confirmed) that Chan and Cage were officially signed on. Plus, Stallone said that he wanted a "young Sigourney Weaver"-type character for the threequel. Could this be who Jovovich is in talks to play?
Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) recently signed on to direct The Expendables 3. In addition to the franchise regulars (Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, etc.), the action threequel will also see the return of Mickey Rourke (who appeared in the first movie but not the second). No release date has been set yet, but a 2014 debut is likely if production goes according to plan. Stay tuned to CBM for more news on The Expendables 3 as we have it.
