Hi, Bryan Here….
If two films weren’t enough, there will be a third movie to laugh at. That’s right, ‘The Expendables 3‘ has a release date of August 15, 2014, which Lionsgate is proud to get behind. And why shouldn’t they be proud, the first two made over $575 million worldwide, which is the biggest franchise for Millennium Films. This time around, Patrick Hughes will be in the director’s chair, which his only feature credit is for a movie called ‘Red Hill‘, so she has his work cut out for him.
And if Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme wasn’t enough last time, the agin actors list keeps getting bigger and bigger. According to IMDB, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nic Cage, and Milla Jovovich have been added as cast members according to Deadline. I want to see a fight scene between Chan and Snipes. Both of their martial arts training should provide a decent fight scene together. And hopefully we get a giant Nic Cage freakout somewhere in the mix, because that is what everyone expects now from him.
So, I’m sure as long as these keep making money like the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, we will keep getting ‘Expendables‘ movies. Now I just want to keep guessing, which action stars will be added to the roster for future films. If Bruce Campbell is not added by number four, then I say we riot.
