Is Steven Seagal about to sign up for The Expendables 3?

Stallone teases his involvement

Sylvester Stallone has been a busy boy on Twitter recently, using the social networking site to drum up excitement for upcoming sequel The Expendables 3.

Last week saw Stallone teasing the possible involvement of Wesley Snipes and Jackie Chan, and the star is now suggesting that he is in talks with another action giant...

“Just talked to Steven S. in Moscow,” revealed Stallone. “Sounds great and says he wants to be in EX3, if the part fits..."

Unless we’re very much mistaken, that has to be a reference to Steven Seagal, one of the last big action heroes to have stayed clear of the Expendables series so far. Looks like Stallone is determined to tick off every last legend before he knocks this one on the head.

Directed by Patrick Hughes, and starring as many muscle-bound action men as Stallone can round up, The Expendables 3 is expected to arrive in cinemas in 2014.

      The casting of these movies are more fun than the actual movies. Still, its all good fun I guess.

      Does this mean we get the Seagal vs Van Damme punch-up I've waited 25 years for? Nice one Sly.

      Didnt he already do the 'ironic' route with Machete? Maybe it was Steven Soderbergh, signed up to emulate Werner Herzogs occasional acting.

      As a big fan of action movies, this franchise is p/ss poor, with tumbleweed 'jokes' : "Its not easy being green" and action sequences that are not nearly OTT (The Raid) or fun (21 Jump Street) enough , nothing can save it. And the endlessly quotable cheese platter that is Commando is in my top 5! Nostalgia be damned!

      Jackie Chan vs. Steven Seagal would be nice.

      1. I THINK THAT STEVEN SEAGAL IS TOO OLD. 2. JACKIE CHAN OR BRUCE WILLIS WOULD BE GREAT. SOMEONE WHO IS YOUNGER BUT NOT TOO OLDER

      Hadouken - "Nothing can save it"? I don't know. It seems to me that this being the second sequel of a very lucrative franchise, Expendable 3 is no need to be rescued. Peterdarsky - Steven Seagal isn't too old. Besides, isn't the age of the action stars the point of the Expendables films?
