Pierce Brosnan Talks ‘Expendables’By: Meaghan Ellis - July 7, 2014
Pierce Brosnan is ready to take on action films again, and he has his eye on one film franchise in particular – The Expendables!
According to The Wrap, the famed James Bond star expressed that he would be elated to be a part of the fourth installment of the Expendables film series. The 61-year-old actor also revealed that a deal is in the works and he’s discussed the possibilities with the film’s producer, Avi Lerner.
“Oh, 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,” he said.
If the Irish actor inks the deal, he’ll be the first James Bond actor to be added to the Expendables series. He went on to share a few details about his discussion with Lerner.
“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.’ It’s as simple as that really. I had a grand time in his company,” Brosnan said.
The Bag of Bones star also shared his perspective of the film’s star-studded cast, praising Hollywood veteran and Expendables director, Sylvester Stallone. He also supported the casting of Kelsey Grammar for Expendables 3.
“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. 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,” Brosnan said. “He’s a fantastic actor, Kelsey Grammer. You don’t have that kind of career without having a talent, without having something to say and to give to an audience.”
Expendables 3 is scheduled to hit theaters nationwide, August 14. No further details have been released about the fourth installment of the film series as of yet.
