Just talked to Steven S. in Moscow …Sounds great and says he wants to be in EX3, if the part fits….

A few days ago, Stallone also revived talk that Jackie Chan could be in the mix:
What’s the plan? Ask Jackie Chan….

Jackie Chan spoke with Empire recently and told them the following regarding a possible role in The Expendables 3, ”[The Expendables team] did contact me, but right now I have not read the script yet. I’d love to work with Stallone, but until I get back next week and meet Stallone and his manager, see the script…that’s when he’ll tell me what happens.”
On the same day of the Chan Tweet, Stallone »

Four talented magicians mesmerize an international audience with a series of bold and original heists, all the while pursuing a hidden agenda that has the FBI and Interpol scrambling to anticipate their next move in Now You See Me, a visually spectacular blend of astonishing illusions and exhilarating action from director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans).
The Four Horsemen, a magic super‐group led by the charismatic J.Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of hightech, high‐profile magic shows, first amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white‐collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts, baffling the authorities with their intricately planned capers.

I love The Expendables franchise like I love Bruce Willis’s beautiful bald head: with no bounds. What is there not to love about sexagenarians hopped up on steroids blowing stuff up by the sheer force of their masculinity? No, seriously: The Expendables rocks. The Expendables 2 was equally awesome, and of course I have nothing but high hopes for The Expendables 3. If man behind the explosions, Sylvester Stallone, has anything to say about it, we’ll soon be adding one more badass to our badass list.
Stallone recently Tweeted that he’s been speaking to ‘Steven S.’ about The Expendables 3, which Mr. S. is totally into, ‘if the part fits.’ Steven S., in all likelihood, is none other than perhaps the only badass not to get in on the action yet: Steven Seagal. If Seagal joins the cast of The Expendables 3, he’ll be following in »

Steven Seagal is probably the biggest holdout on fans’ wish-list of aging badass action stars to be featured in The Expendables franchise. The first two installments had Seagal’s name associated with them (if only by fan nomination) – but in each case, the hope was never rewarded. It comes no surprise then that The Expendables 3 casting process has once again entertained rumors of Seagal joining up; it’s even less surprising that that same rumor was once again debunked earlier this year by franchise architect Sylvester Stallone.
What Is surprising, however, is new word that strongly indicates that Seagal could pull a complete 180° turn and sign up for a go of it (pun intended) with the rest of the Expendables crew.
It is Sly himself rekindling this particular casting news fire, with this not-so-cryptic tweet:

We’ve got exciting news as Jackie Chan’s confirmed he will star in The Expendables 3… If he can make his schedule work! In an interview with Getty Images Entertainment at the Cannes Film Festival, the martial arts legend confirmed that Sylvester Stallone’s tweets about his possible involvement in the threequel are not far off the mark. Jackie revealed:
“I cannot promise you anything but let’s see what happens. I would love to do it. I love Stallone.”

You probably missed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s comeback. Most people did. The Last Stand was supposed to be the former Governor’s mighty return to movies, but instead it grossed a paltry $12 million domestically and now marks Schwarzenegger’s lowest grossing movie ever (factoring inflation). It’s a shame, because those who (really should) take the opportunity to give The Last Stand the second chance it deserves on video will discover that it’s not just an enjoyable burst of Golden Age action cinema filmmaking, but a meta narrative that makes it far more intriguing than it appears. Most comeback movies dutifully pander to fans’ nostalgic expectations by just giving them more of what ain’t broke. Exhibit A: The Expendables series, which recreates for its actors (including Schwarzenegger) the roles they’ve always inhabited while exhibiting an “Oorah! We still got it!” enthusiasm about bringing back its aging heroes. The Last Stand, however »

"[The Expendables team] did contact me, but right now I have not read the script yet. I’d love to work with Stallone, but until I get back next week and meet Stallone and his manager, see the script… that’s when he’ll tell me what happens."
"I’d most like to have a fight scene with Stallone. Though I’d like to team up with him against the bad guy. There are so many action stars involved, it must be so difficult being the director. How do you share out every scene? 'I want to do something special, I want to do something special!' At the end, it’s all small parts, small parts, small parts. I want a big part! I hope I have a big part with Stallone!"

Anchor Bay Films has acquired U.S., Australia and New Zealand rights to the sci-fi action film Battle Of The Damned from Bleiberg Entertainment’s Compound B. The Expendables‘ Dolph Lundgren stars with David Field (The Rover), Matt Doran and newcomer Melanie Zanetti. Anchor Bay Entertainment’s president Bill Clark and acquisitions Evp Kevin Kasha made the deal. “There truly is no other film like this on the market, it’s got zombies and robots and spectacle. The visual effects are fantastic and this is one of the best roles Dolph has ever had.” In the near future on the outskirts of civilization a remote test facility lays in ruin following a catastrophic security breach. The breach led to a viral outbreak that left thousands dead or mutated. All that remains are a handful of survivors, their small armory of weapons and a fleet of the infected. Led by private »

“The Expendables” franchise seems like both a blessing and a bit of a curse for Sylvester Stallone and his team of aging action stars. While the franchise itself has proven to be a hit, it hasn’t exactly been a career re-launcher for guys like Stallone and Schwarzengger whose films “Bullet to the Head” and “The Last Stand” proved to be unsuccessful in the box office this year. Still, at least they all have a franchise to fall back on and it’s fun to see what kind of a cast Stallone can conjure up for the next “Expendables” film. Speaking of which, Stallone has recently taken to Twitter to tease us all about who might show up for “Expendables 3.” Stallone wrote a series of tweets a few nights ago dropping a few casting tidbits. He has confirmed that Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke will be in the third film, »

The big surprise so far where The Expendables 3 is concerned is the man who Sylvester Stallone has recruited to direct it. Patrick Hughes has the low budget feature Red Hill to his name, and he's been hand-picked by Stallone to bring fresh life into The Expendables franchise.
Stallone is working on the screenplay, and he'll be starring in the film of course. And he's taken to his Twitter feed to tease some of the faces who'll be joining him.
Firstly, Stallone confirmed that Mickey Rourke is back for this one. He also revealed that he's been talking about Wesley Snipes, saying "he can not Wait to fight to the top again" (which we think means he's probably in). Then he added "Antonio B....? Could be", and "What's the plan? »
Bruce Willis is nothing if not totally willing to make fun of his advanced years while still churning out tireless action movies full of mayhem. At least three franchises Willis is currently involved in ("Red," "The Expendables" and "Die Hard") fulcrum around the hey-isn't-this-old-guy-shooting-people-funny thing. Now it's been announced that Willis will star in yet another old dude action movie this time with the name (wait for it) "Expiration." Willis, showing a new level of self-awareness, will star as a hardened hitman who is "poisoned and desperately searching for an antidote before he dies." So… "Crank?" Brian Tucker, who wrote this year's rote political thriller "Broken City," penned the screenplay, which is being produced by Emmett/Furla Films. Willis's "Red 2" opens later this summer with plenty of jokes about how old he is while he fires automatic weapons at bad guys. [via The Wrap] Earlier on Moviefone: 'Red 2' Poster »

The Toxic Avenger is loosely based on the cult classic Troma film of the same name and directed by Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine). It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger with Lloyd Kaufman set to executive produce. The film is expected to be introduced to buyers at Cannes 2013 with pre-production set for the Fall. Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Expendables, The Last Stand) has joined the cast of the upcoming remake of the Troma Cult Classic film The Toxic Avenger. The upcoming film is loosely based on the original Loyd Kaufman classic of the same name and is about a teenager who transforms into a mutant-like superhero after being dunked in a vat of toxic waste by a corrupt chemical company. Schwarzenegger will portray 'The Exterminator', who is a former Black Ops agent that trains the Toxic »

While the entire purpose of my existence now rests on eventually getting to see Bill & Ted 3, I suppose that we can allow Keanu Reeves to do other films in the interim. He’s right now featured in Generation Um (see our interview here) and has been cast in the sci-fi movie Passengers opposite Reese Witherspoon. Now Reeves has also signed on to play a former hitman in the revenge tale John Wick.
John Wick concerns said hitman who gets very very upset when a car thief steals his 1969 Ford Mustang (Not the ‘Stang!) and kills the dog given to him by his beloved late wife. Yeah, you do not kill a former hitman’s dog. Wick tracks the little thug down, only to discover that the thug’s daddy is a crime boss and Wick now has a bounty on his head.
John Wick will be directed by a pair, »

For the last 50 years, the James Bond franchise has produced some of the best action / adventure movies in cinema and those that were fortunate to land the role of James Bond have went on to become icons of film. Casino Royale has the distinction of being one of the top casino movies of all-time and other films such as Goldfinger and Dr. No, and others are considered cult classic. Daniel Craig has certainly made the role of James Bond his own, but there are some other actors that we would love to see take on the role of 007.
The star of films such as The Transporter, The Italian Job, Crank, War and The Expendables has that perfect balance of rugged good looks and kick ass fighting skills that you would want out of James Bond. Who needs suave when you can beat a man to death with his »

Although I love “The Expendables” franchise like nobody’s business, I’m not necessarily a fan of how Jet Li is used in the films. I was really hoping that director Wang Ziming’s action flick “Badges of Fury” would be a return to form for the veteran actor. Although the trailer you see embedded below features Li beating the cinematic crap out of quite a few people, it’s also infused with some extremely corny comedy. I honestly didn’t expect that. The setup is pretty basic: Two cops, one younger and one older, are on the track of a notorious killer. Along the way, they’ll encounter busty women in revealing very outfits and a wide variety of comic mischief. The fights might look solid, but I’m just not sure about the goofy sense of humor. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. »

Indie Lionsgate, run for the last 12 years by CEO Jon Feltheimer and co-chairman Michael Burns, is now widely considered to be Hollywood's seventh studio. It has built its reputation via such breakouts as the Oscar-winning "Crash" and "Monster's Ball," as well as a succession of horror ("Saw") and action ("The Expendables") as well as comedy hits from the likes of Tyler Perry. Lionsgate also acquired a number of libraries, including Trimark, Artisan and Mandate, whose chief Joe Drake ran the motion picture side until he was replaced after the Summit Entertainment merger by Patrick Wachsberger and Rob Friedman. One reason they were eager to merge the two companies on the verge of the end of the "Twilight Saga" was Drake's acquisition of a little franchise called "Hunger Games" ($685 million worldwide). All the studios need some titles to rely on that buffer the risk of all the movies that might not work. »

The Last Stand is famous for being former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.s big return to film as a leading man. Although we did catch Schwarzenegger in The Expendables and The Expendables 2, in The Last Stand, the focus is mostly on the veteran action hero. However, Schwarzenegger is not the hero of this exclusive Blu-ray bonus clip. Instead, director Kim Ji-Woon is. The South Korean director has found success with films like A Tale of Two Sisters and A Bittersweet Life, but his first film in the Us.and in English.is The Last Stand. In the clip, the actors and Ji-Woon both speak about the language barrier that was present during filming, as well as how the actors were usually able to understand the director.s intent, even if he wasn.t speaking in English. It seems wild to think an entire movie could be accomplished with a language barrier, »
Ever since “24″ went off the air, I’ve found myself with a gaping Jack Bauer shaped hole in my life. I’ve tried to fill that void with a variety of different kick ass heroes and time and again I’ve been disappointed. It has led me to the question, where have all the action hero tough guys of yesteryear went?
I’m not here to review that film, but suffice to say it was absolutely diabolical and I was wracking my brain to think why? The CGI looked cheap, but I’ve seen cheaper. The villain was pants, but he was still pants when Paul Walker ass kicked him ten years ago and every scene in »

Patrick Hughes Directing Third The Expendables Three. The selection of Patrick Hughes for The Expendables 3 (2014) answers the question of who will be directing the franchise’s third film. This announcement makes it evident that producer Sylvester Stallone‘s efforts to woe Mel Gibson and John Woo into the director’s chair were unsuccessful. Meeting [...]

Though they’re distributed through Lionsgate, "The Expendables” films have been produced through Millennium Films, the closest modern equivalent to The Cannon Group. In an unintentional nod to that company’s B-movie history, Sylvester Stallone has once again decided to tap someone else to direct the third “The Expendables” film. And while he went with a veteran choice last time out in Simon West, this time he's going with someone you probably never heard of. Yesterday Stallone tweeted that the new director -- oh, the times we live in -- is none other than...Patrick Hughes. We’ll forgive you if that name means nothing to you, we had to rack our brains to figure out who he was too. Way back in 2010, Hughes’ directorial debut, the neo-western “Red Hill,” premiered at the Berlin Film Festival to mixed reviews but gained a bit of a following at some genre festivals »
