The business side of the movie business is meeting today in Santa Monica today at the American Film Market and two sequels were confirmed, one expected and one, not so much.
The Expendables 3 has been rumored for quite some time with various cast members of the current group and producers offering up sound bites of what and how might take part in the third film of the franchise.
Today, The Expendables 3 was confirmed though no casting or storyline was announced.
Meanwhile, the more unexpected sequel announcement came with the confirmation of The Mechanic 2. The film will be a sequel to a 2011 action flick about a hitman played by Jason Statham and his protégé portrayed by Ben Foster.
No details were given for that sequel either.
Collider also announced three other films coming from Millennium Film which will be coming out next year.
Are you excited for a third Expendables movie, now that it has been officially confirmed? How about a second Mechanic? At least Statham will be gainfully employed in 2013.
