More news has finally been released on the cast for The Expendables 3 and speculations regarding Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas have been confirmed and they will be joining the team!
According to The Wrap, Mel Gibson will be playing the baddie in the upcoming sequel but there’s no detail on who Banderas will be playing. Gibson had been rumoured to be playing the main villain after tweets from Stallone, but it seemed to amount to nothing at the time.
According to The Wrap‘s source, this instalment will have the grisled mercenaries of the first movie facing off against “a younger group of tech-savvy action heroes.” The film will play up the old vs. young angle until the two groups have to team up to take down the big bad guy.
The Expendables 3 is being directed by Australian director Patrick Hughes, with, like the first two movies in the franchise, Stallone is once again handling script duties and production is expected to begin in the next few months for a proposed August 15, 2014 release.
