The Expendables 3

Apparently, Bruce Willis is out because he's too "greedy and lazy". And Harrison Fucking Ford is in it as replacement.

Also rumored are Milla Jovovich, Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, and even Steven Seagal.

A given seem to be Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Randy Couture.


I enjoyed the hell out of the last one. I can't wait for the next one.

Re: The Expendables 3

The cast seems good..and Harrison Ford is cool addition
I kind of hope that they would bring back Nan Yu, who played Maggie in the second movie.
I liked the character.

Steven Seagal could play the villain or at least a bad guy.
Lorenzo Lamas might be good, too.

Yeah, apparently he wanted $1 million a day, which would have amounted to $4 million for four days work, and would drop out if he got anything less.

I was hoping they'd bring back Van Damme as a good twin of his character in Expendables 2.

''Even'' Steven Seagal? Where else is he going to do?

Ford's not the first Oscar nominee to be in this series, but it's still whacking me out he'd turn down TRAFFIC and choose this ensemble instead. Is here for his age or for his talent? Will this next film actually allow him to act? Less constipated, perhaps.

So far it appears to me only Statham actually seems to be attempting to make an effort. My absolute loathing for Part One exceeds all bounds, but I'll soon be watching Part Two since Simon West DID provide us with CON AIR. Don't believe Chris Rock. That one did not suck.

Stallone keeps saying Cage is in but Cage keeps saying he's not.

Jet Li and Mickey Rourke are also rumored to be returning.

You earned that one.


Not sure how much longer this whole supercast schtick can be maintained, but 2 was awesome, so bring it on!

Re: The Expendables 3

The formula can be extended endlessly because there really is no overaching story but old(er) action heroes blow stuff up and do one liners.

And there's a ton of old, fading career action stars who can fill a role and haven't been yet in the movie.

Personally i love the movies for the sheer camp and ridiculous acting and action.

Re: The Expendables 3

It's disappointing that Bruce was insisting on $4m for 4 days of work.
I kinda feel like if Ford has agreed to do it, and in the past he was known to stick to his guns on his asking price, then Willis did indeed overreach. Cause Ford is likely having to do this for "peanuts" as well. With the budget and cast this series is more passion project for the novelty of it then one an actor does for the paycheck. Which seems to be, looking from a distance, why Ford might be doing it. A chance to work with some actors he never has.

Also, the fact that Segal is in it is kinda big news if only for the fact that he and the producer, Lerner(?), have had a private personal feud of loathing for one another going back to the early 90's. Some bridges seem to have been mended if only temporarily for the sake of this project.

I think Jackie Chan should be Maggie's Father. I actually thought that was going to be the plot when Stallone talked about making it a smaller movie with not as many co-stars and just with Jackie Chan. That him and Jackie would team up to go free her from somewhere in an old damsel in distress plot.

Re: The Expendables 3

Guess I'm one of the few who enjoyed the hell the first movie, but didn't much care for the second. It just didn't feel quite as fun and gung-ho for some reason, and there was too much standing around firing guns and not as as much actual fighting.

Although it's also possible the novelty of the idea had just worn off too much by that point.
