Mel Gibson Rumored to Play the Villain in 'Expendables 3'
In today's installment of Casting Rumors We Pray Are True, an (alleged) anti-Semitic, racist, alcoholic, philandering movie star — or, in other words, the most perfect real-life supervillain you've ever heard of — is in serious talks to join The Expendables 3 crew.
Let's meditate on the true genius of this. Sylvester Stallone and the rest of his ecclectic team going head-to-head with Gibson? It's a guaranteed recipe for sucess — at the very least it will be a film catastrophe so disastrous it'll genuinely be enjoyable to watch.
If the rumors prove to be true, Gibson will be joining a cast that reportedly includes Stallone, Nicholas Cage, Milla Jovovich, Jackie Chan, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Red Hill's Patrick Hughes is already set to direct. (Fun fact: Stallone previously tried and failed to get Gibson to direct The Expendables 3.)
With or without Gibson, Expendables 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on August 15, 2014.
