Is this the plot for The Expendables 3?

Jul. 11, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Do any of THE EXPENDABLES movies really need a plot? Can't it just be about fighting the enemies (who cares who they are), massive action scenes, great one liners, and just reminding me of why 80s/90s action stars are so awesome? Oh, you can throw in some T&A too. Doesn't matter to me, but it might to the duders out there.

A fansite for flicks, expendablespremiere.com has heard of a possible plot for the third installment:

It's no surprise that the kung fu legend Jackie Chan is slated to join the growing cast of action superstars for Expendables 3. Chan is to play a former team member that aids Stallone and his crew in saving the president.

Jet Li is also to return; this would be the second time the kung fu movie legends have worked together. And for any action-junky, this will make the popular franchise even more exciting.

Another kung fu movie great, Donnie Yuen was also believed to be attached to the film. But word has it that he backed out of the project.

Still the list of old school action heroes continues to grow with names like Wesley Snipes and Steven Seagal. This could be the biggest collection of action heroes ever in one movie.

This ties into what Sylvester Stallone said back in January when he talked about wanting Bill Clinton to board the film. Will it happen? It would be sort of amazing if it did.

THE EXPENDABLES 3 starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jackie Chan, Mickey Rourke, Milla Jovovich, Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, and probably many more, will be in theaters August 15th, 2014.

I love the idea of Jackie and Jet in another film together. Bill Clinton being in this to be the president doesn't make any since though. He's not the pres anymore, so why would anyone wanna kidnap him? If your gonna make it about kidnapping the pres just get an actor to play the pres. Morgan Freeman was good as the pres in Deep Impact.

I hope the plot of this is that they have to rescue the President. the first two were lacking in a premise necessary to bring all these guys together or create some memorable action sequences but this could be just what the franchise needs. Also I would not be opposed to setting it in the White House despite the two moviies we already had that did that this year. Plus who could be the President. the obvious choice is Eastwood but considering he turned down a role who knows. Endless

Yes for Donnie Yen. I thought he was terrific in Shanghai Knights and should have just been in loads of Hollywood flicks after that. Of course, he had Ip Man to keep him busy. Donnie Yen totally should've been Kato in The Green Hornet, he played a character who was essentially a Kato expy in Legend of the Fist: Return of Chen Zhen. This sounds like a much better way to incorporate Asian characters into the team: absolutely was not a fan of Yu Nan as Maggie in that second film. She came off as

She came off as too stiff and too smug, her dynamic with the rest of the gang too forced.

i still want...

it to be a Bruce Willis type character (assignment guy from first movie) to challenge both Stallone's team and Schwarzenager's team to who can kill the most bad guys. but it turns out that it was a set up to eliminate both teams so they work together to take down Bruce Willis

i know this wouldn't work with Willis's specific character with how he develop in the second movie, but you know what i'm trying to say. I love these movies, keep'em coming

so stoked Jet is back!

His very short but VERY memorable and badass bit in Ex2 was just plain awesome, absolutely loved it. Hope to see a lot more of him and a lot more of that in Ex3, and hopefully a straight up Jackie/Jet fight!! (I did enjoy The Forbidden Kingdom but it was very much a fantasy movie, a fight between them here could be more reality based which would be awesome)

Only two people who should be considered for playing the President: Clint Eastwood, and Sigourney Weaver.

Imagine if they somehow get George W Bush to play a part in this as himself.

The first one was okay. The second was unwatchable; I couldn't finish it. I have no hope for part 3.

They need to kill off some characters or the third will be even more of a mess than the first two were. Don't get me wrong - I saw both opening day but there is so much potential here that Stallone can't quite seem to reach.

I'm just glad to have Gibson and Snipes back on the big screen again in a mainstream film.

As long as they have kick ass over the top action scenes then this film will be just as great as the first two.

ahhhh....

IDK I didn't really like the first 2. I thought they were really boring, and it felt like everything was placed in and didn't seem to flow for me. maybe I need to watch them again. sometimes it takes a while for movies to grow on me. But I am so damn happy that all these actors were seen in the movie.
