Pierce Brosnan keen to join the Expendables

Pierce Brosnan has been discussing the possibility of his joining the Expendables franchise, with the former James Bond sounding extremely open to the idea.

"I said to Avi Lerner, ‘If it works out and you have a good script, Avi, you know where to find me if you still want me,’" reveals Brosnan. "It’s as simple as that really."

"Sylvester Stallone is the one that’s given us these wonderful platforms for actors who have and had careers to go play and have fun and to entertain," he continues.

"To bring a bunch of guys together who saved the world, fought the bad guys, and put them all on the same stage, that’s crazy good."

"It’s just about entertainment. Avi is somebody I’ve heard about and his movies always have big brash entertainment value to them. You can really change the world and that’s great, but The Expendables ? Yeah, I’d love to do The Expendables . It’s just a kick in the pants.”

Should the franchise eventually spawn a fourth film, it sounds as though they won't have to look far for a new cast member… in the meantime, The Expendables 3 will open in the UK on 14 August 2014.
