Clint Eastwood is in talks to star in 'The Expendables 3'.

The 82-year-old actor and Harrison Ford are both in negotiations about appearing in the third instalment of the action movie franchise - which stars Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger -producer Avi Lerner has confirmed.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''I have started to speak to Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford. I'm not sure about Steven Seagal, we'll see.''

Avi also revealed Nicolas Cage and Mickey Rourke will star in 'The Expendables 3', and he is keen to sign up Wesley Snipes - who is in jail serving a three-year prison sentence for tax evasion, which he started in December 2010 - when he ''comes back from prison''.

He added to Total Film: ''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].
