'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.
The Expendables 3
It's been rumored for some time now, but it's now official: the great(ly troubled) Mel Gibson has joined the cast of 'The Expendables 3,' where he'll play the main bad guy. He's also being joined by Antonio Banderas, another fading star who has been rumored to join the film for quite some time.
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.
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 team Lionsgate have been trying to build the perfect cast for the upcoming 'Expendables 3' for quite some time, helping to bring on both returning stars and, what Sly refers to as, "new blood." As it turns out, part of this new blood is a vampire -- or rather, 'Twilight' star Kellan Lutz.
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!
With 'The Expendables 3' already casting every washed-up actor in the history of ever, it should come as no surprise that Sylvester Stallone is apparently courting Mel Gibson. It's a development that Stallone has teased before, but now the Oscar-winning actor and director is rumored to have signed on to the project in a crucial role.
The 'Expendables' franchise is built entirely on the idea that watching a whole bunch of movie stars (from former legends to C-listers) kill a whole bunch of people will make for a good time at the movies. Franchise star and chief creative voice Sylvester Stallone has promised that 'The Expendables 3' will up the ante in every way and the news that Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are in talks to join the cast has us believing him.
