Following the huge success of the first two Expendables movies, despite the fact that The Expendables 2 had some of the cheesiest lines ever, it was clear that we were going to get The Expendables 3. Writting has already begun on the script for The Expendables 3 and Sylvestor Stallone has spoken a little about the casting.
While the first two Expendables movies focussed on the aging stars, Sylvestor has admitted that he is looking to bring in some young actors, in a bid to keep the franchise fresh. While no names had been mentioned, it has now been claimed that The Raid star Joe Taslim is being lined up for a role.
For those of you unfamiliar with Joe Taslim, he is an Indonesian actor who is starting to make a name for himself in Hollywood. Joe is set to be seen, starring alongside Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Paul Walker, in Fast and Furious 6.
As well as Joe Taslim coming on board to appear in The Expendables 3, it has also been mentioned that Mel Gibson could be set to direct the movie. Sylvestor Stallone took to his official Twitter account to ask his followers, "Mel is a MAGNIFICENT director! Pure passion on every level . we'd be blessed to have him.. A REAL long shot, but LIFE is a long shot -right?"
