Proving that men over 60 can still kill many many people, The Expendables franchise has helped to bring together Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis and many others, all in the joint pursuit of fighting younger people.

In this week's magazine, we spoke to Pierce Brosnan who exclusively revealed that he'll be the next sixtysomething action hero to join the cast.

"Oh, the offer has come in for the next Expendables," the ex-007 told us. "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."

He's not exactly sure which instalment it will be though...

"I have no idea...I just said yes. It could be 7!" he joked.

The Expendables 3 adds Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas and Harrison Ford to the cast. Brosnan can currently be seen in A Long Way Down.

You can see the full interview in this week's ShortList, out Thursday.
