Who will be expendable next time?
Happy Lee Christmas- Statham is pleased to hear that Jackie Chan may be joining the cast for The Expendables 3:
"I should never go with rumors because they’re often not correct, but I hear Jackie Chan might be coming to the party and that would make me very happy because I do like Jackie Chan. I like Jackie because I’ve been a friend of Jackie’s forever. He’s broken every bone in his body for his commitment and dedication to doing his own stunts. So he’s the real deal. He is the real deal."
And he is under no illusion about the appeal of the films:
"The action is just…you can get away with anything. It’s so over the top. What we sometimes lack for in story comes back in something else. And people are just lining up to be a part of it. It’s great."
There have rumours of Steven Seagal, Nic Cage and even Clint Eastwood appearing in the next instalment but that will largely depend on one man:
"The magic wand comes from Sly. He will either 'yes' you or 'no”' you. So yeah, Expendables 3. Here we go. Strap yourselves in!"
