Nicolas Cage has rubbished rumours he has joined the cast of The Expendables 3.
The Kick-Ass star was thought to have a part in the third instalment of Sylvester Stallone's action franchise, but told Den Of Geek it was unlikely.
He said: "I'm not in Kick-Ass 2 and I don't think I'm in Expendables 3.
"And I like those guys, but I would say it would be highly unlikely that I'd be in that movie."
He also insisted: "I have not had any formal discussions about that movie."
The Expendables 3 is expected to start shooting this year, for a possible release in 2014.
