Jackie Chan Says He is in The Expendables 3

Source: Cinema Online, ComingSoon

December 17, 2012

With the first film earning $274.5 million and the second $300.4 million at theaters worldwide, it is almost guaranteed that Lionsgate will be making The Expendables 3 and it sounds like they have a big addition for the third installment lined up.

Talking at a press conference for CZ12 in Kuala Lumpur, Jackie Chan said he is on board. "Sly had invited me to be in 'Expendables 2' but I was too busy filming 'CZ12' and couldn't make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes."

He added that he hoped the third installment of the franchise would run along the lines of a 'buddy-buddy' movie should Chan be starring in it, to which Sylvester Stallone obliged.

Chan said he also hopes to be reteaming with his "Rush Hour" co-star Chris Tucker soon. The script they are currently working with is for a movie with the title Skip Tracer, but the actor said it could be turned into Rush Hour 4.

"The script is currently viewed by Chris Tucker," he said. "Personally, I feel that if he were to pick it up, it would be better if we turned it into 'Rush Hour 4,' but I do think that three movies for the franchise is a perfect ending. It would be better to start a new buddy movie with someone new."

Patrick Hughes to Direct Expendables 3

by SuperHeroHype

April 23, 2013

Sylvester Stallone has just revealed (via his Twitter account) that Australian director Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) is set to direct The Expendables 3.

"EX3 Needs freshness, class, and much badass," Stallone writes "....Found it... Blood Sweat and Fears, coming soon... My best PURE ACTION FILM - The last RAMBO - I want this one too top it and I believe it will with NEW BLOOD."

The cast of the last film included, in addition to Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Nan Yu, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Exactly who among those might be returning remains to be seen, but Stallone has hinted that Jackie Chan could join the Expendables' ranks and that the third outing will offer a lot of "new blood."

Producer Avi Lerner last year claimed that conversations had begun with Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Mickey Rourke. At this time, none of those names have been confirmed.

Lionsgate & Summit Set Dates for The Expendables 3 and Escape Plan

by SuperHeroHype

June 03, 2013

Lionsgate announced today that Summit Entertainment's Escape Plan is moving to the crowded weekend of October 18, 2013 from its previous release date of September 13. The other releases scheduled for that date are Carrie, Don Jon and Seventh Son.

Directed by Mikael Håfström, Escape Plan stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jim Caviezel, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D'Onofrio and Amy Ryan. In the film, Ray Breslin (Stallone), the world's foremost authority on structural security, agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called 'The Tomb.' But when he is wrongly imprisoned, he must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built.

Lionsgate has also set an August 15, 2014 release date for The Expendables 3, which will again star Stallone and has Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich in advanced negotiations to join him. The third installment has the date to itself for now.

Rumor: Mel Gibson Up for Villain Role in Expendables 3

Stallone's muscle-bound sequel might land the Road Warrior.

by Scott Collura

June 7, 2013

Could Expendables 3 be the biggest and best in Sly Stallone's muscle-head series yet? With a new report indicating that Mel Gibson might join the cast, it seems like it.

Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman says his sources have pegged Gibson as the bad guy in the film. This rumor is unconfirmed at this point, but if it pans out the star will reportedly be joining other series newcomers Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Milla Jovovich, and Nicolas Cage, in addition presumably to Stallone and other veteran Expendables.

Stallone had previously said on Twitter that he spoke to Gibson about possibly directing the film. But the actor turned down the job. Still, Mel clearly needs to figure out how to get back into the good graces of the movie-going public after his PR disasters in recent years. He's already playing a villain in Machete Kills. Is this the next step?

Lionsgate and Millennium Start Principal Photography for The Expendables 3

by SuperHeroHype

August 19, 2013

We gave you a peek earlier today at the set of The Expendables 3 in Bulgaria, but now Lionsgate and Millennium Films have officially announced that filming has started along with the full cast and a synopsis. Here's the press release:

Lionsgate and Millennium Films will begin principal photography today on THE EXPENDABLES 3, the third installment of THE EXPENDABLES action-thriller franchise, with production shooting on location in Bulgaria and at Nu Boyana Studios in Sofia.

THE EXPENDABLES 3 will feature Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to their roles in the first two films with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford joining the all-star cast along with Kellan Lutz, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Glen Powell.

Patrick Hughes (RED HILL) will direct the film, with veteran Dan Bradley (The BOURNE franchise; MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, QUANTUM OF SOLACE) directing the second unit. THE EXPENDABLES 3 is written by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt, who previously teamed on OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, and Sylvester Stallone. Avi Lerner, Kevin King-Templeton, Danny Lerner and Les Weldon are producing THE EXPENDABLES 3. Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson and John Thompson are executive producing. Lionsgate will release THE EXPENDABLES 3 in North America and the UK on August 15, 2014.

In THE EXPENDABLES 3, 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 production will be overseen by Lionsgate’s Jason Constantine and Eda Kowan.

The first two installments of THE EXPENDABLES have grossed nearly $600 million in combined global box office.
