Kellan Lutz made a name for himself by playing the chiseled vampire in 'The Twilight Saga,' but now he's ready to unleash his new character, that of legendary strongman Hercules in 'Hercules: The Legend Begins.' The star released a brief snippet from the official trailer, to be released in full during New York Comic-Con, but just a tad more exciting is that he revealed himself in costume on the set of 'The Expendables 3' in the process.
The Expendables 3
The biggest appeal of the 'Expendables' franchise has always been seeing all your favorite aging action stars on the screen at same time, even when they have no reason to be in the same movie. However, nothing has come close to the pure, unfiltered weirdness of seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger on the same set as Harrison Ford. The former Terminator/Governor shared an image of them on the set of 'The Expendables 3' and it's just plain strange. While they've always existed on the same world, they feel like two people from different dimensions.
'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.
'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.
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!
