'The Expendables 3' to Start Filming This Fall

Co-star Randy Couture confirms that a third film is already being planned before 'The Expendables 2' even hits theaters.

There may be a very good reason that Sylvester Stallone is going back to an R rating for his upcoming sequel The Expendables 2. If co-star Randy Couture has his facts straight, Sly is planning a trilogy of films for this franchise, and he wants to stay on the good side of his fans to ensure that happens.

A third film seems like a no brainer, and it will be coming quicker than we could have imagined. According to Couture, this next installment of the action icon packed series is already planned and will "probably" shoot in the fall, shortly after The Expendables 2 hits theaters in August.

Here is his exact quote.

"Probably going to start shooting Expendables 3 in the fall after The Expendables 2 comes out in August."

Sorry if that seemed redundant. You can watch the interview here. Go to the 3:02 mark for Randy Couture's comments.

Donnie Yen, Gina Carano, Steven Seagal, Wesley Snipes, and Kurt Russell are all in the running for The Expendables 3.

The Expendables 2 was released August 17th, 2012 and stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film is directed by Simon West.

    I like the series so far BUT......where is Action Jackson? Com'on man! No knock to T.Money but realtalk when I think of the 80's icon with 90's & 2k action stars Action Jackson was our dude. Sly get Action Jackson & Snipes.

    Seagal would be ok as long as he's the heavy (uhhh, so to speak!) and so gets his ass kicked. I'd like to see Liam Neeson in #3 too.

    I think they need Shannon Lee in the third installment if it is made, she is Bruce Lee's daughter and he is/was the ultimate bad ass, also wesley snipes steven segul, bring back mickey rourke, the rock, the great khali (just cuz he's a huge guy and would make for a good fight scene for dolph lungren) and keep everyone else who does not die in the second movie. oh maybe clint eastwood. on a side note wtf is liam helmsworth doing in the second movie he's not bad ass

    He says "probably", okay then there is no reason to discuss this being made until after the trailer and the release of the second one, right? Who knows, it may never even get made and if you do post something that one of the cast members says will "probably" happen which may just be here-say for all we know and again may not happen, people may go nuts. Oh wait...

    I love how prideful Hollywood is becoming. "Let's confirm a sequel even though the movie is not even out yet, because there is no chance in hell their NOT going to watch our big, pointless blockbuster, right?"

    @supermanvenom Watch some of his movies like Fortress, Fortress 2, The Road Killers, The Hunted, and Mean Guns just to name a few and I have a feeling you will feel he should be in the next movie.

    @supermanvenom Christopher Lambert was a big action star. He could fit very well into a villain role.

    Sly is contended with his fanbase to pull off the sequel to be a box office hit however case maybe, the third film is still pushing forward and it may seem farfetched claiming the an alive chick before it is hatched!

    Frankly, the the first film did not have a grounded story just well intended for adrenaline junkies...Story counts Sly, your Rambo 4 worked and you can do better :D

    @pjwolsker Yeah i like him too. I was thinking the need someone like Vin Diesel or even the rock.

  24. Pjwolsker

    @supermanvenom@thedude1 I'd rather have Michael Biehn in the third one. But that probably wont happen cause Sly kind of insulted him by saying how his career pretty much sucks now and Michael took offense to that

    They must be really afraid Stallone and Schwarzenegger will age too much very soon to want to get it started that fast.

    I'm glad they are making a 3rd movie but this is too soon. A two year gap in between sequels is always a good idea. I just hope Stallone is smart and gets Christopher Lambert for part 3.
