Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas Join ‘The Expendables 3′
You can add two more names to the ever-growing list of actors attached to The Expendables 3. Deadline confirms that Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas will appear alongside Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jackie Chan and Harrison Ford, among others.
Last month, Stallone mentioned going up against Mad Max in the third installment of the action franchise, which now seems to be confirmed. Banderas’ name hasn’t been thrown about much, but he and Stallone did play against each other in Assassins.
The film’s story hasn’t been discussed publicly, but we do know that Red Hill director Patrick Hughes is helming the project, which is scheduled for an Aug. 15, 2014 release.
