It looks like production has officially started on Sylvester Stallone‘s The Expendables 3, according to these photos we’ve got from Coming Soon. They feature Stallone coming to work, some guys with guns, and vehicles on fire, so all in a day’s work. The interesting bit is Stallone’s lack of facial hair, can this be a flashback when he was buddies with Mel Gibson’s character?
The confirmed cast for the film as it stands: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Jason Statham, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Wesley Snipes, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell, Antonio Banderas, and Mel Gibson.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
The Patrick Hughes directed film will arrive in theaters on August 15th, 2014.
