There have been many names thrown around as potential new members of Stallone’s The Expendables 3 cast, and the two names that appear to be sticking are Jackie Chan and Wesley Snipes. With filming expected to begin later this year, cast announcements could start very soon, but it would seem that Stallone has already confirmed one!
A few days ago the rumours of Snipes being part of The Expendables 3 were confirmed as almost true, reports told how Stallone had offered the Blade and Demolition Man star a role in the new film. It was reported that Stallone wanted to help Snipes get back on his feet, with a source close to the New York Daily saying:
“Sly wants to help Wesley get back on his feet. He sees him as a super addition to The Expendables in what will be their biggest adventure yet. The script is being processed and Sly wants Wesley to jump on board. Filming is likely to start late this year.”
Now Stallone has taken to his new best friend, Twitter, to confirm the news by Tweeting earlier today that Snipes “is BACK!!!!! … … with US.”
Now, this has not been 100% confirmed yet, but it is very encouraging news, and I would absolutely love to see Snipes in the third Expendables movie.
About a month ago, Stallone took to Twitter to reveal:
Writing EX3 at the moment… there are going to be mountains of surprises.
EX3 needs NEW blood and more humor…. The films were always meant to be more on the humorous side with moments of drama..
Expect loads more on this third film as it develops!
