Antonio Banderas and Mel Gibson confirmed for Expendables 3
It's official: Mel Gibson is the villain of The Expendables 3. Antonio Banderas is joining the cast too...
Sylvester Stallone continues to juggle his recruits for the next The Expendables movie, which goes before the cameras shortly. This week alone, Harrison Ford has joined the film whilst Bruce Willis has, er, 'departed'.
Now? We've had the confirmation of a previously linked face, and the addition of a new one.
Previously rumoured, and indeed hinted to direct, was Mel Gibson. He's now been confirmed as The Expendable 3's villain, treading where the likes of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Eric Roberts have gone before. Joining the cast too, and reunited with Stallone after their work on Assassins, is Antonio Banderas. His role is unclear at the moment.
Patrick Hughes is directing the film, which has a release date in August 2014. And we'll have more on The Expendables 3 in due course...
