It should come as no surprise that Nicolas Cage has agreed to do The Expendables 3. Since his tax issues came to light in 2009, he’s appeared in several paycheck movies. Movies like Knowing, G-Force, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Season of the Witch, Drive Angry, Seeking Justice, Trespass, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and Stolen.
Sylvester Stallone confirmed the news that Cage was hard up enough to join the sequel via Facebook. Warning: the following words make little sense:
“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.”
