After “Expendables 2″ expanded the cast of action legends and went on to make $300 million globally, the fanboys of the 80s throwback series wanted to know who would be added next. There were rumors of Nicolas Cage and Jackie Chan and Bill Clinton(?), but no definite words.
“Writing EX3 at the moment,” Stallone said. “There are going to be mountains of surprises.”

Among the non-casting changes Stallone wants to put in place for the threequel is the addition of more jokes. (As if “I now pronounce you man and knife” wasn’t funny enough.)
“EX3 needs NEW blood and more humor…. The films were always meant to be more on the humorous side with moments of drama,” Stallone said.
The action legend did have some casting news, but it’s bad news for anyone hoping for a Steven Seagal appearance. Jackie Chan, however, may still be in the cards. “No S. Seagal, sorry ,but maybe we get lucky with J. Chan!”
Aside from the expected old-timers, Stallone wants to include a younger generation this time around. “And some young bloods!!! By young I mean 22 to 27. Not big bruisers but tech wizard, super brains and a young woman who is not a sex symbol but funny ,tough,REAL,” he wrote.
