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."
Sly, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke and Jet Li will all be returning for the third Expendables film, and Jackie Chan, Milla Jovovich and Wesley Snipes are all said to be in talks about parts.
The Expendables 3 is expected to start shooting this year, for a possible release in 2014.
