Pierce Brosnan confirms he will join Expendables 4 cast
James Bond actor joked his role might not be sorted until Expendables 7
Pierce Brosnan is set to be the next actor to go from action movie doldrums to the Expendables franchise, revealing he has been offered a role in a sequel and is up for taking it.
Brosnan will be the first James Bond actor to sign on for the series, which will see him join fellow Brit Jason Statham.
The 60-year-old is a slightly surprising arrival given he has made a few more high brow films than his Expendables peers, which include NFL player Terry Crews and professional wrestler 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.
Brosnan told Shortlist that he had already held talks with his Survivor producer Avi Lerner about the role.
"Oh, the offer has come in for the next Expendables," he said. "I just worked over in Bulgaria with Avi Lerner who makes them.
"He said, 'Would you like to be in The Expendables? I'd love to have you', and I said, 'Why not?' So we'll see."
"I have no idea which one it would be," he added. "I just said yes. It could be [Expendables 7]!"
Brosnan is currently starring opposite Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul in comedy A Long Way Down.
The Expendables 3 opens in cinemas this August.
