Sylvester Stallone is busy pulling together the cast of The Expendables 3. Just last week it was revealed that Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Milla Jovovich are in talks to star. Now Showbiz 411 reports Mel Gibson is likely to play the villain in The Expendables 3, although nothing has been confirmed.
Back in April, Stallone suggested that he wanted Mel Gibson to direct the action sequel, but that job actually went to Aussie director Patrick Hughes (Red Hill). Sylvester Stallone also wrote the screenplay for The Expendables 3, but no story details revealed just yet, so we don’t know what Gibson’s villainous character might be up to.
An August 15, 2014 release date has already been set.
