The cast for the third installment of the Expendables franchise is filling up quick. They’ve been hard at work making Expendables 3 just as star-filled as the other two flicks, bringing in the aging action stars to do more old people stunts and pay tribute to their past action fame. Harrison Ford was brought into the fold recently and now two more old folks are on board – Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas.
If rumors are true, Gibson will be taking on the role of the main baddie this time around, which is, considering Gibson’s current reputation, probably the best part he could play (and one of the best they could get for the part). Unfortunately, there’s no word on what’s going on with Banderas other than the fact that he’ll be in there somewhere.
Altogether, the Expendables 3 cast is shaping up pretty well, consisting of names like Kelan Lutz, Victor Ortiz, Ronda Rousey, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham. Rumors are also still flying about the potential addition of Nick Cage, Jackie Chan, Milla Jovovich and Wesley Snipes, though nothing is set in stone in that regard.
Check out Expendables 3 in all its geriatric glory come August 15th, 2014.
