Sylvester Stallone wants Mel Gibson to direct 'Expendables 3,' confirms Wesley Snipes will co-star
Stallone chose Twitter to confirm the previously speculated Snipes news (oddly directed at himself, so it doesn't show up in his main feed):
@theslystalloneWesley Snipes is BACK!!!! ... ...with US.-- Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) April 15, 2013
And then Stallone clarified what had at first seemed like a joke about Mel Gibson joining "The Expendables" directing team. (Stallone directed the first film himself, while Simon West handeled the sequel.)
Mel is a MAGNIFICENT director! Pure passion on every level . we'd be blessed to have him.. A REAL long shot, but LIFE is a long shot -right?-- Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) April 15, 2013
Stallone has also made it clear his goal is to get Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford on board "The Expendables" train (good luck with that), but more realistic rumors have been circulating that Nicolas Cage is likely to join in the threequel, possibly as a villain.
