Awesome: Full Expendables Cast + Plot Synopsis Announced

The Expendables 2

Good news everyone! The full cast has been announced for The Expendables 3!

We already knew that [Bruce Willis is out of Expendables 3 and that Harrison Ford is in]( but now we have a full cast list thanks to [Slashfilm](

* Sylvester Stallone
* Jason Statham
* Jet Li
* Dolph Lundgren
* Randy Couture
* Terry Crews
* Arnold Schwarzenegger
* Wesley Snipes
* Antonio Banderas
* Mel Gibson
* Harrison Ford
* Kellan Lutz
* Ronda Rousey
* Victor Ortiz
* Glen Powell

Ok that’s a pretty impressive list. Antonio Banderas? Wesley Snipes? Anyone? And then there’s the synopsis:

> 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.

Come on that sounds awesome. Assuming of course that it steers more towards the tone of Expendables 2 because Expendables 1 was pretty terrible. Either was I think that Mel Gibson as the villain is an inspired choice. He’s just the right amount of crazy for this. That is to say: a lot crazy.
