Action legend Sylvester Stallone took to twitter
last night to drop a few names and provide some update on The Expendables 3
. Among his major reveal is the return of Mickey Rourke. Rouke originally appeared only in the first Expendables
as Tool, the recruitment liaison and armorer for the team as well as their tattoo artist. His strong performance in his role bought a surprising emotional depth in an overly macho action flick.
In other related news, Wesley Snipes is totally game to "fight to the top again", as Sly puts it, while he remains cryptic on Antonio Banderas and Jackie Chan possibly joining the action ensemble film. Sly also mention that he has been scouting locations in eastern Europe and Asia.
On which action films influence him on the making of EX3, here's what he had to say:
Thinking about Raiding, THE RAID....think about it...
We believe we can do better than the RAID, which was an excellent film... Raising the bar...
That is bloody awesome to hear. As a huge supporter of The Raid
here on ScreenAnarchy, it seems Sly know what works in action and its assuring to us action fans that hes heading at the right direction. And the direction I mean is the stomp-on-your-balls and seriously maim-a-poor-bastard-to-pieces kind of direction!
