Pierce Brosnan has agreed to star in "the next" 'Expendables' film.
The 60-year-old actor has been offered a part in the action films - which have been written by and star Sylvester Stallone - by producer Avi Lerner, who would "love" to work with the hunk.
Talking to ShortList magazine, he said: "The offer has come in for the next 'Expendables'. 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."
Quizzed on what film in the franchise he's referring to, the Hollywood A-Lister added: "I have no idea which one it would be, I just said 'Yes'. It could be seven!"
'The Expendables' was released in 2010 and proved to be commercially successful, and two years later a sequel hit the big screen grossing over $310 million worldwide.
The third installment will be released in August this year, starring film favourites Stallone, Jason Statham and Jet Li, who reprise their roles as leader of the titular group of mercenaries Barney Ross, second-in-command Lee Christmas and martial arts specialist Yin Yang, respectively.
Brosnan will next hit the big screen in 'A Long Way Down' opposite Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, 'That Awkward Moment' actress Imogen Poots and Toni Collette.
