The start of the production of the movie is getting closer - set to start in August, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer
mention couple of the names that are in "advanced negotiations" with the studio. Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nic Cage and Milla Jovovich
Now three of those names were mentioned before, Nicholas Cage
a long time ago was a rumor, but it seems he might be in which I wouldn't mind since he is a great actor, just been in financial problems and had to take bunch of movie projects that he would prolly skipped otherwise.
I believe Wesley Snipes
is in 100% since he was meant to be in the franchise from the start, but going in prison for tax problems changed that and Terry Crews
jumped in. So now when he is out and currently in house arrest for a month or so, he will be ready to join and boy does he need a good push back to the action movie scene.
is one of those actors that is still missing in the franchise and he has a biggest problem - he is shooting another movie in the same time. I hope he will be able to join and got a proper role cuz he really deserves it.
The newest and pretty much surprise name on the list is Milla Jovovich
. Sly did mention that he wants some new female blood in the Expendables 3
and Milla definitely has skills in combat which she perfected in Resident Evil
franchise so I hope she will find her spot in the cast, even though I wouldn't mind to see some of the older female action starts in the cast also.
