Steven Seagal is reportedly in talks for a role in The Expendables 3. Back in April 2012, the actor revealed that Sylvester Stallone had offered him a role in the sequel, although we hadn't heard anything further about his involvement until now.

The news comes just a month after an unconfirmed report that Mel Gibson is playing the villain. According to several Bulgarian news outlets, both Steven Seagal and Mel Gibson will have a fight scene alongside Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, and Dolph Lundgren. The screenplay has reportedly been rewritten several times to accommodate a growing cast that also includes Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Milla Jovovich and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) is directing from a screenplay by Richard Wenk. Production is scheduled to begin later this summer.
