International website TV3.ie confirms James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has agreed to join the cast of “the next” Expendables film, which can pretty much be interpreted as The Expendables 4. Brosnan was said to be in Bulgaria and talked with series producer Avi Lerner about the opportunity of joining the all-star action cast for the fourth entry.
“The offer has come in for the next ‘Expendables’. I Jut worked over in Bulgaria with Avi Lerner who makes them. He said “Would you like to be in ‘The Expendables’? I’d love to have you’, and I said ‘Why not? So we’ll see.”
The actor was then asked about which film in the franchise he was referring to, to which the A-lister responded: “I have no idea which one it would be, I just said ‘Yes’. It could be seven!
It’s safe to assume the franchise won’t get past four films, hence the actor’s quasi-confirmation for the next sequel. The Expendables 3 hits the big screen this summer on August 14th. Watch the teaser trailer below.
In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
