Dolph Lundgren - Dolph Lundgren Not Excited By Expendables 3

Dolph Lundgren ''wasn't excited'' when he heard there will be an 'Expendables 3'.

The 54-year-old actor reprised his role as Gunnar Jensen in the action franchise - which also stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzeneger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li and Jason Statham - but hopes there will be a substantial break before filming starts on another movie in the series.

Asked if the speculation 'The Expendables 3' will shoot later this year is true, he said: ''Uh, I heard about the third one. I wasn't too excited, because we just got out of four months in Bulgaria and New Orleans, and enough's enough. There isn't any way they're going to start in this fall, I don't think. You gotta wait and see how this one does, and then set up. Maybe next year.

''I don't think you want to release them too close to each other, anyway. You want a little bit of a break so you can build up The Feeling that you want to see another one.''

Dolph also praised director Simon West - who took over helmsman duties from Sylvester, who co-wrote the film - for keeping all of the all-star cast happy, and admitted watching the interaction of his co-stars was ''interesting''.

He told Den of Geek: ''Simon did a great job dealing with all the personalities and dealing with Stallone to start with. He says, 'Right, you're the star of the movie.'

''But everybody else - Arnold, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Jet Li, Statham and myself - there are a lot of people he has to wrangle and keep happy. He did a great job, really.

''Of course, on set, you've got all these guys in one little room together, and most of them are used to being the star in their picture. I mean, we're a team, me and Stallone and Jason Statham and Jet Li and the rest.

''But I can see when Arnold and Bruce show up, and Chuck Norris, they're not used to sharing a tent, getting suited up along with other guys who are stars in their own right. It's kind of interesting to watch.''
