Getting Mel Gibson to play the main bad guy in THE EXPENDABLES 3 was a godsend. Sly originally offered Mel the directing gig, but thank the lucky stars he turned it down and instead will play CONRAD STONEBANKS (the co-creator of the expendables crew).
So where do we go now with THE EXPENDABLES 4 after getting someone of Mel's stature. We need someone Iconic in both the acting department and in presence. Someone with whom you think can bring a great threat to not only the world, but to the expendables team. May I recommend AL "Tony Montana" PACINO...
Listen to this pitch -- So we know that Avi Lerner is already having ideas for having EX4 set in Cuba. Avi was quoted as saying "The action will be developed in Cuba, but only if Fidel Castro is still alive, otherwise the story will change."
Al Pacino would be the perfect actor to play a Fidel Castro type threat to the expendables team. I will go even further and say that Al should channel his inner TONY MONTANA and be a cocaine sniffing psychopathic killer/leader. One who wants to start another WORLD WAR (or something like that). Get Nicolas Cage to be his right hand man and we are talking!!!
Al hardly acts these days and he even joked once on a talkshow appearance about starring in an Expendables movie.
Sly and Avi, if you guys are listening -- to top Mel Gibson with EX3, you will need to hire AL PACINO for EX4! And he must be sniffing cocaine in almost every scene!
P.S. And while we are talking casting additions:
I support this choice of casting! Al Pacino is Fidel Castro in Expendables screams blockbuster epic!ReplyDelete
PACINO on cocaine could probably take on the entire EXPENDABLES team single handedly LOL.ReplyDelete
It is necessary to return to the franchizeReplyDelete
It is necessary to add to team
It is possible to add still somebody from
Don't forget Carl Weathers, even though him and Sly had some disagreements.Delete
