Sylvester Stallone seems hell-bent on collecting every Hollywood badass who ever lived for his ever-expanding Expendables series, with Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood the latest names on his hit-list for Part Three.
Producer Avi Lerner told us that Nic Cage has already been brought on board to join the cast , and that plans were afoot to add the other three as soon as possible. However, the plan might have hit a slight setback when it comes to Eastwood…
“He does?” asked Eastwood, when told that Stallone wants him to join in the fun. “I haven’t had the opportunity to see [ The Expendables ] yet. I haven’t read any material.”
So would he consider taking a role, when Sly comes a-knocking? “Probably not,” replied Eastwood. “I’m probably more apt to direct something. Maybe I’ll direct Expendables 3 .”
Now that would be an interesting change of pace. How are you with directing motorbikes flying into helicopters, Mr Eastwood? Mr Eastwood? Where are you going?
