The only hint anyone received from the starlet was "the release is closer than you think."
Because that's not vague! LOLz!
Ruh-roh!! These antagonists won't know what hit 'em!!
While he doesn't possess the prototypical build of a conventional action-star or even, say, a high school wrestler, Nicolas Cage secretly amassed an impressive resume of '90s action films!
So we understand why Sylvester Stallone was thrilled to recently announce the star of The Rock, Con Air, and National Treasure is taking his talents to The Expendables 3!
"We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two. We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group. Hopefully we can realize to Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke. That is the great mission of the producer."
We honestly don't understand about 70% of Sly's statement, but we think he's saying Nic is onboard!!
And certainly that bodes well for the future of the fun action franchise!
Nic lent his face to a few craptastic reels of celluloid in his day — we're looking at you, Ghost Rider — but he also starred in Adaptation, Raising Arizona, and Leaving Las Vegas!
