Who is currently being eyed for roles in the inevitable The Expendables 3? Who is the latest to be cast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire? And guess who is still trying to convince us that 3D is big important technological advancement? All these questions are answered in today’s News Invasion; Screen Invasion’s daily round-up of the breaking news from Hollywood.
THE EXPENDABLES 3 COULD INCLUDE EASTWOOD, FORD AND SNIPES
Nicholas Cage, Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes are all being eyed for roles in the third The Expendables film. Producer Ari Lerner said:
“We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys. We’ve got a character in mind for him. We’re talking to Harrison Ford. Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison… We’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters]…And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy. I like Mickey. And of course, all the existing stars…”
Seriously guys, we’re about two sequels away from Avi Lerner hiring holographs of John Wayne and Steve McQueen. And yet there’s still no sign of Kurt Russell. BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT!

BILL AND TED 3 PLOT DETAILS
Keanu Reeves has revealed some details about the plot of Bill & Ted 3, the upcoming sequel to Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill And Ted’s Bogus Journey. The actor said:
“One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world And they haven’t done it. So everybody is kind of like: ‘Where is the song?’ The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock. And we go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and one future ‘us’ refuses to tell us, and another future ‘us’ blames us for their lives because we didn’t write the song, so they’re living this terrible life. In one version we’re in jail; in another we’re at some kind of highway motel and they hate us.”
APPARENTLY, JAMES CAMERON QUITE LIKES 3D
James Cameron‘s next move in his quest to transfer everything in the world into three dimensions sees the director re-release Avatar on Blu-Ray 3D this October. The 2009 Oscar-winning film
loosely based on Pocahontas which the Titanic creator also wrote will hit stores on October 16th as a ‘Collector’s Edition’. Following that, James Cameron will bring Schindler’s List back to cinemas with a brand new 3D transfer so audiences can relive the magic like THEY WERE ACTUALLY THERE.
