At a press conference in Kuala Lumpur, international martial arts actor star Jackie Chan has confirmed to be part of the cast of "Expendables 3."
The film series “Expendables” has brought forth an ensemble cast of notable action superstars together. To many, the Expendables is pretty much a dream-up of various action and martial arts actors coming together. In the first film, you had notable Hollywood action veterans such as Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis. It brought forth other veteran and newcomer actors such as Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. It also brought along international martial arts actor Gary Daniels.
In “Expendables 2,” martial arts actors Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme were signed as part of the cast. While they were trying to get international martial arts actor Jackie Chan on board, he had other scheduled commitments.
Those that wish to see Jackie Chan in a future Expendables movie may get their wishes granted. Chan was at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur to promote his latest film called “CZ12” also known as “Chinese Zodiac.”
At the conference, Chan talked about Stallone inviting him to join the cast for Expendables 2 but couldn't take him up on it because of scheduling conflicts. But, Chan told reporters that Stallone extended the invitation for the Expendables 3. With Expendables 3 combined with other film projects, Chan has his work cut out for him. In short, the international martial arts superstar will be joining the cast of the Expendables 3.
This is due to an agreement that Chan will not have a minor role. With Chan's involvement, it's supposed to be a buddy-buddy movie. It Jet Li does return for Expendables 3, it'll be the second film that Chan and Li have worked on together since “Forbidden Kingdom” back in 2008. Also, actor Nicolas Cage is confirmed to be part of the Expendables 3 cast.
