The plot synopsis for The Expendables 3 has been released.
To coincide with the start of principal photography on the project, Lionsgate and Millenium have put out a press release confirming the film’s cast, as well as it’s plot.
Franchise regulars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lungren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger return, and are this time joined by the previously announced Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas. Wesley Snipes has also been confirmed.
In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
The Expendables 3 will release in North America and the UK on August 15 2014.
