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.

Are you guys ready for another outing with your favorite aging action stars? You won't have to wait long, it seems: 'The Expendables 3' has gotten an August 2014 release date.
If there's one thing Sylvester Stallone understands about the 'Expendables' franchise, it's that you've got to go big or go home. Everything we've heard about the upcoming 'Expendables 3' makes it sound like it's in a mad rush to make up for the particularly poor second film, which can only be a good thing. Mr. Stallone took to Twitter to share and spitball some ideas, including the casting of a new star and the return of another.
Just when you thought that the 'Expendables' franchise couldn't pull another action icon into its ensemble, Sylvester Stallone jumps on Twitter and announces that the one and only Antonio Banderas could be joining the cast of the upcoming 'The Expendables 3.'
For those of you who haven't been keeping tabs with Sylvester Stallone's buzzing Twitter activity, the 'Expendables' mainstay stated that he found someone to direct the upcoming 'Expendables 3.' Though for a while he failed to give us any clues as to whom that might be...until now! It looks like the much-discussed post is going to, well, someone you probably don't know.
In order for 'The Expendables 3' to top its predecessors, it's going to need a few things -- more carnage, more macho dialogue and, most importantly, a few more washed-up movie stars. And you know what? Wesley Snipes more than fits the bill.
About a month ago, Sylvester Stallone started working on the script for 'Expendables 3' which he said needed "new blood and new humor." How about this for new blood? Stallone is floating the name of an Oscar-winning director for 'Expendables 3'...Mr. Mel Gibson.
The last we heard on 'The Expendables 3' front was that Sylvester Stallone was looking for some new blood to join the team, along with mainstays like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dolph Lundgren. And here's an update...he still is!
In 1982, Walter Hill directed '48 Hrs.,' with Nick Nolte as a loose cannon cop and Eddie Murphy as a fast-talking criminal. The oil-and-water chemistry worked, the movie was a hit, and an entire genre -- the buddy cop movie -- was born. Hill has had a long a varied career in Hollywood, directing tough, lean action movies and Westerns and producing the 'Alien' franchise, but '48 Hrs.' and the myriad imitators it birthed will always be his biggest legacy. That fact alone makes his new movie, 'Bullet to the Head,' interesting, since it's Hill imitating himself, with his first return to the genre since 1990's 'Another 48 Hrs.' The mixed results probably won't inspire a resurgence of buddy cop movies, but they're not terrible either, with enough Walter Hill flair to make some moments quite memorable, even if the movie as a whole has its problems.
Hypothetical question for yah: in a fight between action star Sylvester Stallone, and the guy who played 'Conan the Barbarian' and King of the Dothraki in 'Game of Thrones,' who would win? We might have an answer to this not-so-age-old question in the first clip from 'Bullet to the Head.'
