The Expendables 3
Despite rumors to the contrary, actor Nicolas Cage says he isn’t in the third “The Expendables” movie yet and is unlikely to be.
“I have not had any formal discussions about [‘Expendables 3’]. I’m not in Kick-Ass 2 and I don’t think I’m in Expendables 3. And I like those guys [Sylvester Stallone, etc.], but I would say it would be highly unlikely that I’d be in that movie.” [Source: Den of Geek]
