Pierce Brosnan is Expendable!

In a rather cool piece of news, it’s been announced that none other than James Bond himself has been offered a role in The Expendables 4.

According to TV3 “Pierce Brosnan has agreed to star in ‘the next ‘Expendables’ film. 

The 60-year-old actor has been offered a part in the action films – which have been written by and star Sylvester Stallone – by producer Avi Lerner, who would ”love” to work with the hunk.

 Talking to ShortList magazine, he said: ”The offer has come in for the next ‘Expendables’. I just worked over in Bulgaria with Avi Lerner who makes them. He said ‘Would you like to be in ‘The Expendables’? I’d love to have you’, and I said ‘Why not?’. So we’ll see.” 

Quizzed on what film in the franchise he’s referring to, the Hollywood A-Lister added: ”I have no idea which one it would be, I just said ‘Yes’. It could be seven!” 

‘The Expendables’ was released in 2010 and proved to be commercially successful, and two years later a sequel hit the big screen grossing over $310 million worldwide. 

The third installment will be released in August this year, starring film favorites Stallone, Jason Statham and Jet Li, who reprise their roles as leader of the titular group of mercenaries Barney Ross, second-in-command Lee Christmas and martial arts specialist Yin Yang, respectively.” 

Works for me; Mike Frenchy AKA The Action Movie Artist petitioned for this a while back and even made some awesome fan art, which I’ve used for the profile pic.

I’ll hold off celebrating just yet as they said Jackie Chan was going to be in Part 3 and that never happened so until I see the final cast list I’ll remain quietly optimistic.
