Sly Stallone Talks Expendables 3

Our friends at Expendables Premiere posted this chat with Sly Stallone; apparently Nic Cage is confirmed. He damn well better have a Con Air style mullet in it.





What are the new features of ‘The Expendables 3’?                                                                                                                                                              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.

How did Chuck Norris’s return to cinema?

It was very difficult. By now, Chuck is saturated cinema violence. At first he thought the film would be so full of blood and savagery, but then read the script and realized it was more action and adventure. We had the idea of recreating a character in his 1978 ‘Guys Wear black’, Booker, a retired military that assists former comrades on a dangerous mission. And so is his small role in ‘The Expendables 2’ is called ‘Lone Wolf’ and suddenly comes out of nowhere to save.

And finally convinced Jean Claude Van Damme …

It was understandable that he refused to do the first part because, in the role of villain, would end up being defeated. Besides, no one ever saw him as the villain, he has always been a symbol of justice for the oppressed. But Jean Claude took up the challenge, thanks to the success he achieved the first film. It was fun to see him so involved as Jean Vilain, a bad guy who risks his own life. When my character and him got into a war epic, Jean told me: “It is the clash of two veterans coming out of retirement for one last fight”, and we took this situation very funny. Now, he decided it was our last fight, so I do not see in ‘The Expendables 3’.
