Chan Becomes ‘Expendable’

Sylvester Stallone’s “Expendable” franchise has included the top-tier of action heroes from the ‘80s to the ‘90s. It is almost a final tribute for those who have worked within that timeframe, making the most memorable of action movies. Some stars have seemed to be left out, but if so, not for long.

Jackie Chan will be the newest asset to the testosterone-fueled nostalgic series of action films. Chan has been recently promoting his newest film, “CZ12.”

Chan says:

“Sly had invited me to be in ‘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.”

The one stipulation for Chan is the movie must have a sort of buddy movie vibe. Currently, though, Stallone is working to make sure that’s possible.

Chan will also be working on the potential film, “Skip Tracer.” It will be along his forte of East-Meets-West team-ups he has had with such actors as Chris Tucker and Owen Wilson.

Chan says of the possible film:

“The script is currently viewed by Chris Tucker. Personally, I feel that if he were to pick it up, it would be better if we turned it into “Rush Hour 4″ but I do think that three movies for the franchise is a perfect ending. It would be better to start a new buddy movie with someone new.”

It will be quite a delight seeing Chan perform those crazy maneuvers he did in his heyday now that we know he is up for it. “Expendables 3” might be released for 2014, but much of that is up in the air.

    Too bad they can’t bring Van Damme back. He was the best thing about Expendables 2

    As much as I’d like to see JC in an action movie like the Expendables, he’s built his career on his comedic not-so-graphic martial arts, and I don’t think this is right for him, as we all know how graphically violent the Expendables are. Now if Sly were to get Chow Yun-Fat, and his character can be the gun-wielding badass that made his career, THAT would be something.

    Make Expendables 3 a buddy movie?

    Plus a new buddy movie in the works?

    Jackie you’re a legend, but that’s enough buddy.

    Jackie is a great addition but what about Carl Weathers of Rocky and Predator fame? Wesley Snipes would be a great addition to if he’s out of jail in time and Kurt Russel would be great as a villain.
