Check out the first image of Wesley Snipes on the set of The Expendables 3!

Aug. 22, 2013by: Paul Shirey

It's been a long time, but former PASSENGER 57 Wesley Snipes is back on set, joining the aging acton star franchise sequel THE EXPENDABLES 3 and today we have our first peek of the actor on set and in costume. Granted, the costumes are mostly military style duds and lots of fake blood, but hey, that's the charm of these films. Snipes is jumping back into work after his unfortunate prison stint and it's nice to see the actor getting back to work after a long hiatus.

Take a look:

Stallone seems as invested as ever with this suprisingly successful franchise and it's cool to see him rallying this gaggle of stars together for some mindless, explosive entertainment. THE EXPENDABLES films are silly as hell and full of nonsense, but that doesn't erase their charm, as it's just a blast to see all these cats in one film doing what they've done their entire careers. In many ways, THE EXPENDABLES is like the action star retirement home and they've got lots of Jello and Bingo to go around. Keep it up, boys!

THE EXPENDABLES 3, starring 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, and Glen Powell will unleash the fury on August 14, 2014.

Has it been confirmed he's the villain, or is he just joining the crew? I think he and Mel Gibson together would make a badass evil double act.

Thanks for the clarification. I think he would've been even better as a villain alongside Mel (think Demolition Man) but him joining the team should be good too.

Free at last!

Good to see Wesley back in action and hopefully kickstarting his career. One of the few action guys of the 90s that could also act. Heres to you breathing free air and hopefully kicking some ass.

I have to admit..........

I was not terribly thrilled with Snipes' involvement in this film. Upon seeing these pics though, I've had a change of heart. I loved the guy I Demolition Man, and I'm a fan of the Blade trilogy. Other than that I never really thought too much of the guy. But now I'm glad he's back and hopefully he's having a blast with the rest of the Expendables cast. I'm sooo glad that there has been no OFFICIAL WORD of that fat, arrogant, loser Steven Segal in this film.

Loving Snipes participation.

I love that these movies exist as both a celebration of the genre, a fun, work based piss about for Stallone and friends (except Willis apparently who mistook it for an actual film) AND as a way for Stallone to lend a helping hand to those who have fallen on their arse either professionally or personally in recent years.

Seeing Dolph, Van Damme, Snipes and Gibson having a genuinely good time on the big screen is as big a draw for me as seeing Stallone, Statham

Also I love how giddy Couture and Terry Crews get about working on these movies (it's a genuine dream come true for them).

However.....has Barney Ross finally decided to get rid of that awful goatee?!? Maybe they'll CG one on.

I really liked Wesley and It's actually a shame what happened to his career. I'm glad to see him back and working again. He still has some gas left in the tank.

I love Wesley Snipes

and that tribute shows he's directly from the "Jim Kelly chop sockey/completely ineffective but still awesome" school of martial arts.

I think he's referring to the fact that it is widely believed The Expendables II was shot as a PG-13 film and then given an R rating later due to CGI gore added in during post-production. Personally, I loved The Expendables II (more than the first), but I'm pretty sure that's what he's talking about. I hope it is shot as an R rated film as well.

LOL.... you kidding?

The man was finished a decade ago. Hes done. He was never really a big enough star like Gibson or a good enough actor like Robert Downey JR. to be on the same level he was or better.

He´s a pretty good actor and was a star until his ego got the better of him. But talking about finished: Downey was out of the game a decade ago and Gibson is still working on his comeback, so don´t count Snipes out yet. And remember: Always bet on black!

Well, to be fair, as much as I personally love him, Dolph Lundgren was never really what you'd call a big star either. Rocky IV and Universal Soldier were both hugely successful, and if you count his small part in A View To A Kill, that was too, but that's about it, so I'm not sure why it strikes you as preposterous that Wesley Snipes is in this and that people are happy to see him. Plus he's actually had a lot of successful films, so it totally falls into the criteria on which the casting for

Unless I'm completely misreading the sentiment behind your post.

Still optimistic about the third film, but it's great to see Snipes back in an action movie.

Um Jackie Chan

Why are all the articles lately not mentioning Jackie being in EXP3? IMDB and Wikipedia still say he's in it. Did he drop out?
