Official details on the film...
- Lionsgate and Millennium Films announced today that principal photography has started on The Expendables 3. Production is taking place in Bulgaria and at Nu Boyana Studios in Sofia.
The cast for the film includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to their roles in the first two films. Joining the cast is Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, UFC Champion Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Glen Powell.
Here is the official synopsis for the film…
Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables' most personal battle yet.
The Expendables 3 is set for a August 15th, 2014 release.
