Taken aback as we were to learn that a potential 'Rambo' TV series had begun the development phase, with Sylvester Stallone in negotiations to be involved creatively and potentially reprise the role, it now seems an understandable caveat has been put in place. Stallone himself will not re-don the headband as John Rambo, should the series make it through development, but what direction might the new adaptation take?
Remember when Sylvester Stallone announced the 'Rocky' franchise would return, with Michael B. Jordan in the leading role of 'Creed,' and it didn't sound entirely crazy? Meet the antithesis of that, as Stallone's other aging icon 'Rambo' may soon come to TV in a new series with Stallone reprising the role! Oy, this day so far.
'The Expendables 3' began filming in Bulgaria today, and Lionsgate marked the occasion by sending out a press release that not only confirms most of the crazy ensemble cast but teases a plot that sounds just nutty enough to earn back our attention after the mediocre second film. If you aren't on board the 'Expendables' bandwagon (and we totally wouldn't blame you if you're not), just know that Mel Gibson is playing a character named Conrad Stonebanks. Conrad Stonebanks.
Even at 71, Harrison Ford is still game to play action heroes -- earlier today we learned that Ford is game for another 'Indiana Jones' film, and while that might not happen, there's another action franchise that's willing to take him in. It seems Ford has joined the cast of 'The Expendables 3,' if Sylvester Stallone is to be believed.
The 'Rocky' franchise had its fair share of ups and downs over the course of six great-to-awful films, but 2006's 'Rocky Balboa' seemed to definitively close the door on the story of Sylvester Stallone's good-natured boxer. However, it turns out that the saga isn't over quite yet!
A spinoff titled 'Creed' is in the works and it will follow the grandson of Apollo Creed, the champion boxer and chief rival/best friend of Rocky Balboa.
Sly Stallone continues to build upon his already-impressive 'The Expendables 3' cast; just yesterday it was indicated that 'Twilight' hunk Kellan Lutz was looking to join the team, and today we find that the film is bringing aboard a couple of "real life" badasses: pro boxer Victor Ortiz and MMA champ Ronda Rousey!
Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are bringing their upcoming film, 'Escape Plan,' to Comic-Con and it's going to wind up being one of the hottest tickets all weekend. But, we've got good news for you. You can beat the lines and snag yourself a reserved seat so you can bump shoulders with Arnold and Sly and be the first to see 'Escape Plan'!
Sylvester Stallone has been busy recruiting a new team of actors for 'The Expendables 3,' all the while keeping fans updated on the latest happenings via Twitter. Now that the film has a director, Patrick Hughes ('Red Hill'), and a handful of new and returning stars have been confirmed to team up, what about this rumor that Mel Gibson will be playing the villain? Well, it seems he's on board too!
