‘The Expendables 3′ Adds More New Blood With Glen Powell
'The Expendables 3' continues its casting blitz. Recently, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas were confirmed for the muscular sequel, joining fellow newcomers Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz. Today another name has emerged, although this one isn’t quite as big. A young man by the name of Glen Powell.
Powell appeared in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (as "Trader #1") and this year's 'Stuck in Love,' and will play a leading role as a “pilot, computer hacker and combat veteran,” according to Variety. No word if he’s actually one of Stallone’s team of mercenaries or working for the competing side.
Patrick Hughes is directing ‘The Expendables 3,' which has an August 15, 2014 release set. Among the other names reportedly involved are Wesley Snipes, Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich. Sylvester Stallone previously stated that casting would feature a slew of "new blood," though Arnold Schwarzenegger will also be back for his third turn as Trench.
However, Bruce Willis will not.
