Is Pierce Brosnan on board for a role in Expendables 4? The former James Bond actor will in fact join the cast of the next film that is scheduled for release some time in 2015. Prior to being enlisted the actor expressed a strong interest in being cast, naming Sylvester Stallone as one of the biggest draws for him.
“Sylvester Stallone brings 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,” the actor said about the franchise.
“I said to producer Avi Lerner, ‘If it works out and you have a good script, you know where to find me if you still want me.’ It’s as simple as that really,” Brosnan confirmed.
Once Pierce Brosnan officially signs on the dotted line, his presence in the fourth installment will mark the first time a former Bond actor has appeared in the franchise. He can rest assured, however, that plenty of top notch actors who have previously played action stars are on board as well, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham–not to mention Sylvester Stallone.
Expendables 3 is set to premiere in theaters on August 15th. That means a lot can happen between the release of that film and when filming for number four commences. In the meantime Pierce Brosnan is starring in a new film called A Long Way Down. He spoke with Matt Lauer about his role on Sunday on The TODAY Show.
