MORE Expendables 3 Casting News: Mel Gibson the Villain


It’s been an interesting week for EXPENDABLES 3 casting news. Bruce Willis bowed out (reportedly for money-related reasons) though there was little mourning time, with Harrison Ford immediately filling the Willis void.

Believe it or not, things just got even more interesting with Sylvester Stallone finally announcing his pick for the flick’s ‘badie’.

Whilst rumours have been circulating for some time, it was only last night Stallone finally confirmed Mel Gibson shall be bad-guying it up for the third film in the trilogy.

It has been argued by some that Gibson’s past personal mishaps have alienated some audiences (an argument supported by pretty convincing box office figures). Perhaps a turn at the villain in such a popular film series will help win them back – in fact Gibson will be donning his face of evil in the upcoming MACHETE KILLS as well.

Stallone also announced another addition to the already star –studded cast: Antonio Banderas.

Looks like EXPENDABLES 3 is set to be one mega aging heartthrob party. I’m up for that!


Sian's love for movies spawned from having a tight mother whose generosity stretched only to hiring movies once a week for entertainment. As a pre-teen Sian spent more pocket money then she earned on cinema tickets and thus sought a job at the cinema. Over the next decade she rose to be one of the greats in her backwater, six-screen cinema complex, zooming through the ranks from candy bar wench with upselling superpowers, to pasty projectionist, to a manager rocking a pencil skirt. Sian went on to study Journalism at university though feels her popcorn shovelling days were far more educational
