The Expendables III


We’ve been treated to so much goodness this summer already that we forgot about the all important concluding chapter of the pivotal Expendables trilogy. Chock a block full of Sylvester Stallone’s buddies, The Expandables 3 promises to be the rootinest, tootinest, shooinest, explodiest Expendables of them all with the returning old guns, some more veterans joining the fray, and a group of newbie recruits. From the looks of it, this three-quel promises nothing less than an entire neighborhood being destroyed in the midst of all it’s action. And apparently, Jason Statham and Wesley Snipes cement their bromance with a game of knives. That’s sweet. (more…)


Sylvester Stallone put a casting news update for The Expendables III on his Facebook page to confirm that Nicolas Cage is signed up and that he (Stallone) is still hoping to get Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, and Mickey Rourke on board.Really though, besides Harrison Ford do any of those guys have any reason NOT to do the movie? Wesley Snipes needs the money to pay taxes on all the other money he has not paid taxes on, Rourke has managed to revive his career and flush it right back down the toilet again faster than a speeding bullet. It is going to really take some work on Stallone’s part to get Harrison Ford involved, I’d put money on Ford not getting any where near this movie with a ten foot pole.

Sly couldn’t resist the urge to throw a stone or two at the movie’s critics while making this announcement, you’d think¬† that with a movie like this he would just have fun, make some money, and let it be. Does he really think that critics would fawn over this type of movie, Lord help us if Stallone starts reading reviews of his Dolly Parton movie Rhinestone.

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.
