Jackie Chan, aka one half of the best buddy cop duo ever, has recently confirmed that he will be in the third installment of The Expendables. In other words, Jackie Chan is old. But it’s cool because old guys can apparently launch a motorcycle into a helicopter, navigate a plane on land, air and water, rip doors off cars, kill people with anything at their disposal, or hand-paint acoustic guitars, if they so choose.
In addition to the hero from Hong Kong, The Expendables 3 will also add Nicolas Cage because if he can save the history of America, he can save anything, with rumored cast members like Steven Seagal, Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, and Clint Eastwood. Although the likelihood of that actually being the final ensemble is minimal, it is fun to imagine all of them together, kicking ass, taking names, and arguing over whose explosion had more fire.
No release date has been set yet, but production is expected to take place next year. So now the question becomes, what will come first: The Expendables 3 or an All-Female Expendables Sequel?
