New Release Dates For THE EXPENDABLES 3 And THE ESCAPE PLAN
No word yet on what the synopsis will be for the film, or if any of the original actors from Expendables 1 and 2 will return. The least likely candidate is Jet Li who is appearing in Badges Of Fury this month, his third film with actor Wen Zhang. Li who just turned 50, recently announced going into retirement, openly stating he no longer felt the need to star in films for money. Other candidates in question includes Dolph Lundgren, who is slated to host his new action-based reality show, Race To The Scene this summer before flying to South Africa to film the new television series, Rescue One.
One other important factor into Jovovich's presence in the film could be the much-hyped female take on the Expendables cast produced by Adi Shankar, whose previous credits also include Dredd 3D and the Punisher shortfilm, Dirty Laundry. Currently, MMA sensation and Fast 6 femme fatale Gina Carano, and Battlestar Galacta alumnus and Riddick co-star Katie Sackhoff are titled to the project. More updates on that I suppose.
Just so you know, I am in between updates and other assignments for the blog, but in the coming months, I am planning on interviewing one of the stunt performers who worked on The Escape Plan. He also did some stunt work with Larnell Stovall on the upcoming Ernie Barbarash action thriller, Favela, with Michael Jai White an independent filmmaker who writes, edits, directs and coordinates his own action short films. Until then, I'm keeping that my little secret.
