Nicolas Cage Not Cast In 'The Expendables 3'

November 7th, 2012 10:44am EST

Nicolas Cage Contrary to rumors, Nicolas Cage is not set to star in The Expendables 3. Franchise creator Sylvester Stallone told that Cage has not agreed to appear in the film quieting rumors being spread earlier this week.

Rumors of Cage’s casting started after Spanish-language newspaper El Pais attributed quotes to Stallone in a new article saying he was interested in working with Cage; the only problem is the quotes were taken from a press conference for “The Expendables 2″ earlier this year.

Expendables producer Avi Lerner has also expressed interests in working with Cage.

“We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him,” Lerner said to Total Film. “We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters].”

That’s all fine and dandy, but Cage is NOT in talks to star in Expendables 3.
