Nicolas Cage Joins ‘The Expendables 3’ (Update)

***UPDATE: Stallone told Deadline that this report is not true, which is problematic considering most outlets attributed the news to his Facebook page. You can read that grammatically challenged note at the bottom of this post.

Nicolas Cage’s reputation as a paycheck actor precedes him even with an Academy Award to his name. He recently joined an action-oriented reboot of Left Behind, and now he will be part of the cast of the The Expendables 3.

The franchise’s mastermind and action star Sylvester Stallone confirmed that Cage, who he calls “a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group,” will be in the film. He also hopes that Wesley Snipes and Oscar nominees Harrison Ford and Mickey Rourke will hop on board for the third installment.

Check out the unedited press release from Sly himself via his Facebook page:


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.
