Cinema Online reports that loveable Jackie Chan has been invited to join The Expendables 3. In a press conference, Chan spoke about the upcoming film and his involvement:
“Sly had invited me to be in ‘Expendables 2’ but I was too busy filming ‘CZ12’ and couldn’t make a commitment to the film. 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.”
I like the sound of “more than just a minor role,” but what I am hesitant about is the fact that Chan also told Sylvester Stallone that he’d like it if the third film would be a kind of “buddy-buddy” movie and said the script is in the midst of being worked on “to meet the criteria.” With so many big stars in one film, the Expendables has always been more of an ensemble, and I’d hate to see Expendables 3 narrow the focus down to a slimmer cast of characters. After all, it’s a film series based around seeing Action’s greatest stars all together, kicking ass! I guess we’ll have to wait and see whether Expendables 3 ends up more Dirty Dozen or Lethal Weapon.
This is the Action Flick Chick, and you’ve just been kicked in the ass!
