3 legendary names in Hollywood and the action film business have joined Sylvester Stallone's "Pure Testosterone Action" club, and it looks like we're in for some heavy hittin' awesomeness come next year!
After rumors and reports of their participation swirling for months, it's now official that Harrison "Indiana Jones/ Han Solo" Ford, Mel "Martin Riggs/ Braveheart" Gibson, and Antonio "El Mariachi/ Puss in Boots" Banderas will be joining Sly, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, and the rest of the gang for "The Expendables 3"! The news comes via Superherohype and Entertainment Weekly, and is pretty much looking good for fans of these guys itching to see a reunion of sorts for some very familiar names in Action Movie History.
Uniting many familiar names from the action hero genre together, this will be the third film in the franchise set to be released by next August, and we can only wonder where Barney Ross and his ragtag crew of mercenaries will do next! What's confirmed is that Mel will be playing the villain, much like what he's doing this year for Machete Kills.
On the other hand, it appears Bruce Willis isn't saddling up for a return as Church for the new sequel, as he and Stallone haven't come to an agreement and it didn't pan out.

Rumors are also swirling that Wesley Snipes, Steven Seagal, and Jackie Chan may join the club, but we'll have to wait for more official word on that in the future.
The Expendables 3 is set for release on August 15, 2014.
