Milla Jovovich is in negotiations to join The Expendables 3 along with Snipes, Cage, and Chan!

May. 31, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Final negotiations are underway to ink the deals for Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage, and Jackie Chan to join THE EXPENDABLES 3, but there's also a new suprise addition setting up to join their ranks; "Resident" badass Milla Jovovich. Stallone has confirmed Cage, Snipes, and Chan for a long time now, but this is the first we've heard of Jovovich's involvment. On his Twitter account, Sly has talked about finding a "Sigourney Weaver" type for the film, and Jovovich has certainly got the action chops (and hotness) to bring to the table. You could say she's an "aging" action star, I suppose, but at 37 she's a spring chicken to the tired old dogs of THE EXPENDABLES.

I'm not a fan of the RESIDENT EVIL films at all, regarding them mostly as sillly schlock that is barely watchable, but the issue has never been with Jovovich, who is the only shining thing in the series. I've always felt she deserved something better, but at the same time thought it was cool that she embraced the franchise as much as she did.

Production on the sequel is set to begin in August with director Patrick Hughes (RED HILL) at the helm, eyeing a release sometime in 2014.

Extra Tidbit: May as well get Michelle Rodriguez while they're at it...

You are an @$$....and I didn't need to talk to Michael Biehn to find that out.
P.S. He was great in The Divide!

She'll have it written into her contract that the movie has to end on a massive cliffhanger, forcing people to keep coming back again and again and again for an actual end to the fucking story. And she'll be lobbying hard for her talentless sperm donor to direct one of these things in the near future.

Don't do it Sly

She is not worthy - she is a skinny underwhelming action star. With no pre-written plot device about her being some form of super-human it is not feasible she would be keeping up or throwing down with any of the other stars. She has no true fighting skills, you can do better!

I wonder how the "Expenda-gals" project, which has Katee Sackhoff and Gina Carano already attached, is going. Milla might be a better fit in that film. Still, definitely a step up from Yu Nan. She very nearly ruined Expendables 2 for me.

Better Idea

She should join my Octagon along with James Westfall and Dr. Kenneth Noisewater...

Cannot wait to see Snipes on screen again, I don't think he really lived up to his potential as an action hero. Obviously awesome as Blade and cool as hell in Demolition Man.

Since she is basically a female action hero, and a big enough name to carry her own movie (during the off-season), then why not.

As for Michelle Rodriguez, if they keep things up pretty soon Expendables and the Fast and Furious franchises will have no choice but to merge brands.

The ONLY reason she is in the movies you state she "carries" is because her BF is the one making them. She is horrible in the films, which are pretty bad as well. She does not belong in the Expendables.

Thank you for that Milla in leather pic...

Milla is awesome, and I'm looking forward to seeing her in the next installment.

(And yes, she is the ONLY good thing about the Resident Evil films).

There are better choices out there......

Wish Sly would have followed through with his talks of involving Michael Biehn and Michael Pare. Both are strong, under rated actors who still have juice in their tanks. I spoke with Michael Biehn personally on the topic and he was very excited to learn that Sly had mentioned his name for EX2, but was dissapointed and a little hurt that Sly never called him. I love Mila, especially in Fifth Element, but I would have much rather have seen Hawire's Gina Carano kicking @$$ in EX3. I would love to

I would love to see Starship Trooper's/Birds of Prey star Dina Meyer get some action, she is far too under rated. Im not too thrilled about Snipes involvement in EX3, though I love him as a stand alone action star, and he was great in Demolition Man (supposedly there was bad blood between Sly and Snipes on set due to Snipes refusing to pull punches and taking cheap shots at Sly during fight scenes). I wish Van Damme wasn't a villain in the last one because id LOVE to see him return.

I was just about to jump in with some Michael Biehn loving until I saw your post.

Dude should definitely get a bit part along the line somewhere. He made a fantastic return to form in Plant Terror (and is friggin' hilarious in the Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon DLC)

I'm excited to see Snipes back in a mainstream film again and I can't wait to see how over the top Cage will be in this film. And what his hair will look like.

I thought the first film was cheesy, but the second one was definitely an improvement by having more screen time for Willis and Schwartzenegger.

I like the choice

would it be cool to see a Linda Hamilton or Sigourney Weaver? ya sure but I dont think they would be able to keep up the way Milla will be able to, she may even be up to throwing down with Sly or Jet Li

Sigourney is the only chick worthy of the Expandables.

And if they can't land Seagal then they failed....

She definitely fits the bill

and she's a far better actress than a lot of people realize. She held her own against De Niro and Edward Norton in STONE.

But yes, they need to talk to Michelle Yeoh, Lucy Lawless, Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton or even Gina Carano.

If they're looking to recruit women, shouldn't they be approaching the likes of Cynthia Rothrock, Linda Hamilton, Sigourney Weaver, Brigitte Nielsen, and even Lucy Lawless before enlisting the youngins'?

She would be a nice addition, it will help with the recent crap she's been in lately. What's funny about that is the crappy movies she's been in was from her husband's Paul WS Anderson.

Great choice. Was wondering when they would get a woman in there. These films are one my guilty pleasures.

Would've been the obvious choice...to me at least.
