He said: "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 [will return]."

The production team are keen to give Blade star Wesley Snipes his debut in the franchise - which also stars Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li and Randy Couture - when he gets out of jail after serving a three-year prison sentence for tax evasion, which he started in December 2010.

Avi added to Total Film: "[We want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison."

Speaking at the UK premiere of The Expendables 2 in London on Tuesday, Avi told BANG Showbiz: "I have started to speak to Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford. I'm not sure about Steven Seagal, we'll see."
