Mel Gibson To Play The Villain In EXPENDABLES 3?
Sylvester Stallone usually drops Expendables 3 tidbits via his Twitter account, but now we have some (possibly) big casting news from a different source. Showbiz 411 reckon Mel Gibson has signed on to star in the third geri-actioner:
It was rumored that Gibson would actually direct the movie for a while before Patrick Hughes signed on, but now Showbiz 411's sources report that the troubled actor/director will actually have a role in the threequel as the villain! Click on for more..
"I’m told that Gibson will appear in “The Expendables 3,” the third installment of Sylvester Stallone’s shoot em up series that also features his former Planet Hollywood buddies and partners Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. There’s no confirmation, but the source seemed serious."
Their source also claims Gibson will play the villain in the movie. This might be seen as a bit of a risk by Stallone and co., as after his recent "troubles" (run- ins with the police, antisemitism, racism, beating the shit out of women etc) Gibson isn't exactly a big draw anymore. Still, casting him in an antagonistic role might well be a stroke of genius. Anyway, this isn't official yet, but what would you guys think if Gibson was to square off against Stallone in The Expendables 3?
