Steven Seagal is one of the few action stars who hasn’t been in The Expendables franchise yet, but that may change, as Exblog has unconfirmed reports that he’s in talks for a role in The Expendables 3. Back in April 2012, the actor revealed that Sylvester Stallone had offered him a role in the sequel, although we hadn’t heard anything further about his involvement until now.
A few weeks ago, there were suggestions that Mel Gibson is playing the villain. Now several Bulgarian news outlets seem to be confirming Gibson’s involvement, and say that both Steven Seagal and Mel Gibson will have a fight scene alongside Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, and Dolph Lundgren.
The screenplay has reportedly been rewritten several times to accommodate a growing cast that also includes Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Milla Jovovich and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) is directing from a screenplay by Richard Wenk. Production is scheduled to begin later this summer.
