After months of endless internet speculation, the full cast list for Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables 3 has finally been revealed.
Fans of the franchise have tried their best to separate fact from fiction, though their efforts are ultimately derailed by some sort of unconfirmed report about potential stars. Since production is slated to begin in the next few days, producers have hammered out an official list.
The Expendables 3 cast announcement arrived courtesy of producer Boaz Davidson’s Facebook page. However, there’s always the chance that Stallone and company could add more familiar faces to the list as shooting gets underway.
Despite Sylvester Stallone’s insistence that he wanted some female blood for the next installment, there are very few ladies attached to the project. In fact, MMA star Ronda Rousey is the only individual on the list without a Y chromosome. So much for Milla Jovovich’s involvement in the picture.
Also absent from the list are Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage, and Steven Seagal. While the lack of Chan is disappointing, at least Jet Li will return for the sequel. Here’s hoping he gets a bit more screen time than he did the last time around.
Not surprisingly, Bruce Willis wasn’t included in the official cast list for The Expendables 3. After reportedly demanding $1 million per day, Sylvester Stallone replaced him with Harrison Ford. However, Lionsgate remarked that the Red 2 star might not be completely out of the running just yet.
