Sylvester Stallone said The Expendables 3 will have a “mountain of surprises” for fans of the hit series.
The actor said he is currently in the process of writing the script for the sequel. In order to keep everyone up-to-date with what’s happening behind-the-scenes, Stallone recently answered some questions on Twitter.
In addition to adding a “mountain of surprises” to The Expendables 3, Sylvester Stallone said he wanted to add some “young blood” to the cast. He also mentioned that 80s action star Steven Seagal would not be joining the cast for this particular go-around.
However, Stallone did mention that he is still very interested in getting Jackie Chan to sign on for the sequel. While rumors have been circulating for a while that Chan has already inked a deal to star, it would appear that nothing has been confirmed just yet.
Jackie Chan said during a press conference for Chinese Zodiac last year that he was approached to star in The Expendables 2. Although he was interested in signing on, the actor decided to hold out for a meatier role while preparing his final death-defying feature.
“Sly had invited me to be in Expendables 2 but I was too busy filming [‘Chinese Zodiac’] and couldn’t make a commitment to the film,” Jackie Chan explained.
He added, “But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.”
