The Raid Remake Confirms Its Director, Eyes Chris And Liam Hemsworth
The Raid: Redemption is one of those movies that’s so bare bones that one could remake it for America and no one would even realize it. The first wasn’t exactly a crossover smash, pulling in $4.1 million domestically. And the whole highrise fighting element is basically a sidescrolling beat-‘em-up video game.
Kelsey Grammer May Take Nicolas Cage's Rumored Role In The Expendables 3
Directed by Patrick Hughes, who made his feature debut in 2010 with the Australian Western Red Hill, the new film finds the titular gang of mercenaries going up against Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), the man who co-founded the group along with Stallone's Barney Ross. Conrad ended up becoming a ruthless arms dealer, giving Barney no other choice but to take him out, but somehow Conrad was able to survive
The Expendables 3 Reveals Full Cast And A Plot Synopsis
Strangely, Gibson's role as an arms dealer sounds very similar to his part in Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills. Hopefully we can trust Gibson as a performer to give varied performances so that the two roles don't seem too overly similar. Either that or maybe find a way to have The Expendables 3 include Danny Trejo as Machete...
The Expendables 3 Adds Newcomer Glen Powell
When Kellen Lutz entered talks to join the cast of The Expendables 3 late last month it came with news that the film's plot would partially involve the members of the titular team going head-to-head with a team of younger, tech-savvy mercenaries. If that is the case and Lutz has indeed signed on, then it's possible that the size of that rival group has just doubled.
Mel Gibson And Antonio Banderas Confirmed For The Expendables 3
The third Expendables, will be in theaters on Aug. 15, 2014, so director Patrick Hughes is going to have to roll cameras shortly. That means the ensemble should be locked into place in the next few weeks, and then we’ll know for sure who’s fighting alongside Stallone … and whom they are fighting against.
Bruce Willis Demanded $1 Million A Day On Expendables 3
Bruce Willis has been a bona fide blockbuster action star for about 25 years now, and in that time, like most A-list actors, he has been well compensated for his work. Over the course of his career he has signed many multi-million dollar contracts - to the point where you'd think that $1 million wouldn't be that much. Apparently it means everything, though, because it was that sum that ended up stopping the Die Hard star run in the Expendables movies.
UFC Champ Ronda Rousey Up For Fast And Furious 7 And Expendables 3
For Rousey, these will be her one-two punch entries into acting and film. Should she sign on for the reported supporting role in Fast & Furious 7, she would essentially shoot the two films back to back, leaving her the 45 days she needs to train for her next professional bout with Mischa Tate on December 28th. Rousey is also arranging to have her team keep her in modified training during both shoots, however.
Before Stallone: Your Guide To Bruce Willis's Other Famous Feuds
Sure, he doesn't name Willis specifically in the tweet, but it's not hard to connect the dots and assume that Willis was demanding more money for less work-- something Stallone was clearly unwilling to give. And given that this is far from the first time that Willis has clashed, very publicly, with one of his former co-stars, it's not even all that surprising. Need a primer on the many feuds of Bruce Willis? Hey, of course you do
Expendables 3 Loses Bruce Willis, Adds Harrison Ford
Today The Expendables 3 lost one of the veteran action stars it's had from the start of the franchise, but the good news is that it looks as though he's being replaced with an equally great Hollywood legend. Sylvester Stallone has announced via Twitter that Bruce Willis, who starred in the first two Expendables movies as the mysterious Mr. Church, will not be back for the third installment of the franchise, but that Han Solo/Indiana Jones himself Harrison Ford has become the latest addition to the ensemble.
Mel Gibson Isn't Confirmed For The Expendables 3 Just Yet, Kellan Lutz Now In Talks
It seems as though Sylvester Stallone may not be the most reliable source of casting news for the upcoming The Expendables 3. Last week the star seemed to confirm the casting of action veteran Mel Gibson as the main villain of the upcoming sequel, but now The Wrap has apparently confirmed that the "Lethal Weapon star is not officially involved...at the moment."
Sylvester Stallone Confirms Mel Gibson's Villain Role In Expendables 3
If we put aside Gibson's drunken and wildly offensive tirades, his casting in Expendables 3 seems a no-brainer. The movie series that includes such '80s action icons as Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and Dolph Lundgren should clearly include the man who fronted the Mad Max movies...
Steven Seagal Up For Expendables 3?
The Expendables fansite ExBlog recently reported that several Bulgarian news sites are confirming that Steven Seagal will be joining the film as one of the good guys. This almost amounts to a non-surprise, since Seagal’s presence has been casually expected since the first film.
Mel Gibson Rumored For The Villain Role In Expendables 3
Mel Gibson, who has experienced controversy after controversy in the last few years, seems to be fully embracing the villain role that society seems to have placed him in. In a few months he will be seen playing an evil, psychotic weapons dealer with plans to send a missile into space in Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills, and now there are rumors surfacing that suggest he could be the newest target for Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and friends.
The Expendables 3 Will Arrive Next August
Big Expendables 3 news dropped last week when it was revealed that Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Milla Jovovich were all in talks to join the ensemble cast, but one important question that remained was "when?" Today Lionsgate has answered the question.
Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes And Milla Jovovich In Talks For Expendables 3
All four actors have plenty of action genre cred that should help the four new stars fit in quite well with the rest of the ensemble cast. The question that remains, however, is how the four characters will be used. I'd personally want to see Chan, Snipes and Jovovich join up with the good guys and then cast Cage as a ridiculously over-the-top bad guy with plans for world domination. But what do you think?
