According to a report at Malaysian film portal Cinema Online on Monday, December 17, 2012, Jackie Chan confirmed in a press conference in Kuala Lumpur for his latest movie Chinese Zodiac (CZ12) that he will be joining the cast of ‘Expendables 3‘ and that his role in the said movie will not be small.
“Sly had invited me to be in [The] Expendables 2 but I was too busy filming CZ12 and couldn’t make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.” Chan was quoted at Cinema.com.my.
Chan, 58, also noted that his schedule for next year will be very busy and may be making a movie again with Chris Tucker in a film with a current working title ‘Skip Tracer,’ after working with him in the Rush Hour movie series. Chan added that he still has no plans of retiring, but his future action movies may be added by CG effects.
As of this writing, there is still no concrete information about the ‘Expendables 3‘ cast members and its release date; but earlier rumors said that Stallone will be joined by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
As noted at Screen Rant earlier, Chuck Norris confirmed that he will be not appearing at Expendables 3, citing a report from Access Hollywood. Meanwhile, Steven Seagal was also reportedly offered by Stallone but declined the offer. Nicolas Cage was also rumored to be confirmed joining the movie, but the Facebook report appeared to be a hoax.
