Cage, Chan, Jovovich, and Snipes Probably Crammed into 'Expendables 3'


There have been a lot of big names being thrown around as possible additions to The Expendables 3, but as of now, it looks like only those with the lowest standards and largest tax debts are getting serious about it. Speaking to analysts this morning, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer reportedly said he is "advanced negotiations" with Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Milla Jovovich, and Wesley Snipes to join his studio's ever-growing mass of sweat and muscle. Previously-discussed additions Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood were not brought up--presumably because they have even less reason to join this than Stallone does to make it--but Faltheimer did mention that status of another big-name team-up, reminding us that Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer are still doing a sitcom that will be shopped around to network over the coming month, so you can forget about them filling in. The Expendables team will forever lack a Bad Boy and a boy who doesn't know what to do with all the scrambled egg all over his face.
