Fans of 1980s action cinema are eagerly awaiting this week's release of "The Expendables 2" thanks to its all star cast, which includes Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme. So what could they possibly do to top that for "The Expendables 3?"
How about giving fans of '70s action cinema a blast from the past with Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford?
Looks like punks aren't the only ones feeling lucky today.
Of course, the producers of "The Expendables 3" will have to get pretty lucky indeed to land everyone on their dream list; Ford in particular seems like he'd be a pretty hard sell for this sort of project. But then again, considering the all-star line-up they managed to put together for "The Expendables 2," it seems that dreams sometimes do come true.
And according to Total Film, producer Avi Lerner is dreaming very big indeed.
"We've approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we've got a character in mind for him," Lerner said regarding their plans for "The Expendables 3."
"We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I'll give you one more name, we've got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters].
"And we're going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won't be too crazy. I like Mickey. And of course, all the existing stars [will return]."
Just what the plot would be if everyone signed on is a bit of a mystery — logically, Eastwood would kill everyone in the first scene and then spend the rest of the movie drinking a brew with his orangutan sidekick — but we have a feeling fans aren't going to see these films for the storytelling.
So what do you say, Clint? One more for old time's sake?
