Sylvester Stallone Says 'The Expendables 3' May Not Be The Last One

Nic Cage, Expendables 3

Update: Oops, turns out that Stallone/Cage casting confirmation has been debunked by Deadline. Although produce Avi Lerner himself talked up Cage this summer. So, we'll see.

Even though female led spinoffs are already in the works, it seems audiences (worldwide, though maybe not so much domestically) are still keen on Sylvester Stallone's geriatric antics in "The Exendables," with "The Expendables 2" seeing a slight uptick in business over the first entry. So yes, "The Expendables 3" is on the way, and Sly has a few things to say about it.

The actor recently hit Facebook and managed to pound out a few (sometimes hard to comprehend) sentences about the movies, the reported casting of Nicolas Cage and more. Read on:

"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."

You got that critics? This is a "saga" with a "veneer intellectual group" (huh?). Anyway, Clint has already said he's "probably not" going to do this (then again, he talked to an empty chair on live television, so who knows), but keep reaching for those stars Sly. No word on when it will get rolling, but the project is already on the sales floor at AFM, so probably sooner rather than later. [via JoBlo]
