‘The Expendables 3’ to Start Filming This Fall

There may be a very good reason that Sylvester Stallone is going back to an R rating for his upcoming sequel The Expendables 2. If co-star Randy Couture has his facts straight, Sly is planning a trilogy of films for this franchise, and he wants to stay on the good side of his fans to ensure that happens.

A third film seems like a no brainer, and it will be coming quicker than we could have imagined. According to Couture, this next installment of the action icon packed series is already planned and will "probably" shoot in the fall, shortly after The Expendables 2 hits theaters in August.

Here is his exact quote.

"Probably going to start shooting Expendables 3 in the fall after The Expendables 2 comes out in August."

Sorry if that seemed redundant. You can watch the interview here. Go to the 3:02 mark for Randy Couture's comments.


Donnie Yen, Gina Carano, Steven Seagal, Wesley Snipes, and Kurt Russell are all in the running for The Expendables 3.

The Expendables 2 was released August 17th, 2012.

              Seagal would be ok as long as he's the heavy (uhhh, so to speak!) and so gets his ass kicked. I'd like to see Liam Neeson in #3 too.

                I think they need Shannon Lee in the third installment if it is made, she is Bruce Lee's daughter and he is/was the ultimate bad ass, also wesley snipes steven segul, bring back mickey rourke, the rock, the great khali (just cuz he's a huge guy and would make for a good fight scene for dolph lungren) and keep everyone else who does not die in the second movie. oh maybe clint eastwood. on a side note wtf is liam helmsworth doing in the second movie he's not bad ass

                  He says "probably", okay then there is no reason to discuss this being made until after the trailer and the release of the second one, right? Who knows, it may never even get made and if you do post something that one of the cast members says will "probably" happen which may just be here-say for all we know and again may not happen, people may go nuts. Oh wait...

                                  I love how prideful Hollywood is becoming. "Let's confirm a sequel even though the movie is not even out yet, because there is no chance in hell their NOT going to watch our big, pointless blockbuster, right?"

                                    @supermanvenom Watch some of his movies like Fortress, Fortress 2, The Road Killers, The Hunted, and Mean Guns just to name a few and I have a feeling you will feel he should be in the next movie.

                                        @supermanvenom Christopher Lambert was a big action star. He could fit very well into a villain role.
