Following months of speculation, Lionsgate and Millenium Films have officially announced the full cast for The Expendables 3. We also have a synopsis for the film, which officially began production today in Bulgaria.
Here's what The Expendables 3, directed by Patrick Hughes will be about:
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.
Now that you know what the three-quel will be about, meet the new members of the cast who will join Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger:
MMA star Ronda Rousey
Welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz
