Back in August, before Clint Eastwood became famous for talking with a chair, "Expendables" producer Avi Lerner told Total Film that the upcoming third "Expendables" film (yep) would have a spot for the erstwhile Dirty Harry.
“We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him," Lerner said, before adding that Harrison Ford, Nicolas Cage and Wesley Snipes ("when he comes back from prison") were also being considered.
Except for the considered part? When asked by "Extra" about the rumor, and specifically that Sylvester Stallone himself wants Eastwood in "The Expendables 3," the 82-year-old actor replied, "He does?" Added Eastwood: "I haven't even had the opportunity to even see 'The Expendables' yet."
Pushed further, Eastwood said he would "probably not" co-star in "Expendables 3," before joking that he maybe could direct the third installment. Sorry, Simon West; you've been faced.
