Wesley Snipes Joins THE EXPENDABLES 3, Mel Gibson Courted To Direct

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
It's been rumored for ages and now it's official: Sylvester Stallone is being joined by his freshly out of jail Demolition Man costar Wesley Snipes in The Expendables 3. And directing? Well, nobody yet, but Sly knows who he wants and he's not being shy about it, tweeting this late last night:

Mel is a MAGNIFICENT director! Pure passion on every level . we'd be blessed to have him.. A REAL long shot, but LIFE is a long shot -right?
Mel in this case would be Mel Gibson which opens up the possibility for all sorts of tasteless jokes about who the villains of The Expendables 3 might be. I'll leave those for you to make.

Around the Internet:
  • AJ

  • Daniel -Son

  • Snoop Lion

    Great poster choice Todd.

  • There was a choice?

  • kunsabagay

    Mel has been an underrated director ever since

  • Ooga Booga

    The chances of Mel doing this are remote at best. But if he did, it would be a much better film than the first 2 were.

  • tm
