There seems to have been a bit of confusion in regards to earlier statements that Sylvester Stallone made about Nicolas Cage and The Expendables 3.
It’s been erroneously reported by a number of websites that Stallone confirmed Nicolas Cage for The Expendables 3, with a reported Facebook post and a Spanish website being cited as the source.
However, it turns out that Stallone never made those exact statements, as what happened was he previously made those comments about Nicolas Cage – as well as Mickey Rourke, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes – while filming The Expendables 2 — about what actors he would like to see on the sequel.
The mix-up appears to have happened with a translation with the Spanish website, and regarding the alleged Facebook post — that appears to be false.
Stallone tells Deadline.com that he “has no knowledge of Nic Cage joining Expendables 3.”
The good news is that The Expendables 3 is a go and is currently being shopped around to an international distributor.
