Tag Archive: The Expendables 3


“The Expendables 3” already added Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan and Milla Jovovich. Now Sylvester Stallone said that Mel Gibson is close to joining the film to play the villain. Presumably he’d join previous cast members  Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews, Jason Statham and Jet Li.

“The Expendables 3” added some big names today. Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are in negotiations to join the action franchise.

Sylvester Stallone is giving an update on’ The Expendables 3″, saying he’s writing the script now. He says there will be “new blood” ages 22-27 and some women who aren’t sex symbols, but “real”. No surprise he’s working on the script. Stallone, Arnold, Jason Statham and Bruce Willis all bombed this year with “Bullet to the Head”, “The Last Stand”, “Parker” and “A Good Day to Die Hard”. Jackie Chan is in talks to join the cast.

Who should some of the new blood be? I realize these actors aren’t in their 20s, but I’d probably say Vin Diesel, Mark Wahlberg, Jeremy Renner, Gina Carano, Michelle Rodriguez and maybe someone like a Tom Hardy or (this would be ironic) Chris Hemsworth.

“The Expendables 2” added Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and others. Now, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and company will be joined by a new cast member, and possibly three more as well. Stallone said Nic Cage is confirmed for the next film. Stallone also said that they are going after Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke (who played Tool in the first film).

At the American Film Market, Nu Media/Millennium Films confirmed that “The Expendables 3” is in the works. The second film didn’t make as much as the first film in the states, but made more than $200 million internationally. The film would presumably star Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews and more. The second film also starred Jet Li, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and more.

Also announced was “The Mechanic 2”. The first film starred Jason Statham and Ben Foster. That film didn’t even make $30 million, so this is a little surprising to me.
