While the buzz on "The Expendables 2" was fairly muted and the domestic gross lagged behind that of the first film, the blockbuster action sequel still netted a cool $300 million worldwide. Given that making these movies doesn't break the bank, it's not a surprise to learn that a third iteration is in the works. While no director is attached, and the script has yet to be written, Dolph Lundgren confirms he'll return for the musclebound action franchise's third outing, which could even begin shooting this year.

“For the last 10 years I have been making some other different movies. I want to be an Asian Robert De Niro. I don’t just want to be an action star, I want to be a true actor. I want to get rid of my image,” Jackie Chan said back in May. And while it's admirable that the actor wants to change up his persona, he likely also knows what side his bread is buttered on. So what does the actor, who is approaching sixty years of age, do? Might as well roll with the other old folks in the action hay one more time.

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.

Following a painful divorce from his wife, a sentence of jail time handed down to his son, and the recently-released sex tape, it's grown increasingly harder for a YouTube search of Hulk Hogan to remind people of his glory days as a professional wrestler. His fall from grace has continued firmly in the public eye though, and this week Hogan took to Howard Stern's radio show to drop two film-related tidbits, even as his involvement in both remains debatable.

While he isn't berating inanimate objects, Clint Eastwood makes movies, and this Friday he'll take his cantankerous self to the baseball diamond in "Trouble With The Curve" (review here). It's another rare acting outing for the man who has mostly spent the last little while behind the camera, but that doesn't mean he still isn't in demand. It was just last month that producer Avi Lerner boasted that he had Nic Cage on board for "The Expendables 3" with plans to approach some new names like Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford and yes, Eastwood. Well, there's one phone call that Lerner can probably take off his list.

Even though "The Expendables 2" opened at the top of the box office this past weekend to smaller numbers than its predecessor, it seems everyone already has their eye on a third installment. Producer Avi Lerner has boasted he's already inked Nicolas Cage for "The Expendables 3," and says he will be approaching guys like Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes. But there is one Expendable who says he won't be coming back to kick more aging ass: Chuck Norris.

So, was 2010's over $270 million worldwide haul for "The Expendables" the indication of franchise starter, or just the result of a novelty concept doing well in the marketplace? We'll find out this Friday when the numbers roll in for the supersized "The Expendables 2," but it looks like producer Avi Lerner is feeling very confident, with an eye already on "The Expendables 3." And not only that, he has a name apparently already signed, and a wishlist of folks he wants (but probably won't get) for the third installment.
