Nicolas Cage confirmed for Expendables 3

Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes still on the hit list

Sylvester Stallone is clearly a hard man to say no to, with the ageing action star confirming that Nic Cage has signed on to star in The Expendables 3.

Stallone revealed that Cage will join his already star-studded lineup of grizzled bruisers, with several more big names still on his wish list.

“We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two,” said Stallone. “We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a intellectual veneer to the group.

“Hopefully we can [convince] Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke.” He continued. “That is the producer’s mission.”

And when Sly Stallone gives you a mission, you damn well accept it. We broke the news of Cage's involvement when we spoke to producer Avi Lerner earlier this year. Seems like Clint Eastwood's is the only name to have dropped off the wishlist.

No release date has been confirmed as yet, but we’re sure Sly will be speaking out as soon as he has it nailed down…

Who else would you like to see join Sly's gang? Tell us, below!

      you know what, i hope he does get the others too. It's obviously no Shakespeare, but the whole point of the first one was about getting a cast of this sort together. Not every film an actor is in has to be a masterpiece. As long as they enjoy their time making the film, why shouldn't they do a project like this?

      The Expendables would benefit from the existense of Castor Troy-esque villian - no though nut for the team of tough nutcrackers to crack

      I really hope he's a crazy bad guy. Either him or someone like Tom Cruise, would be epic! And I don't know why they won't get someone like Til Schweiger involved!
