Kellan Lutz has been invited to join the cast of Expendables 3

Jul. 23, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Are you wondering who Kellan Lutz is? Does TWILIGHT right any bells? IMMORTALS? A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake? I will tell you I had a hard time finding pics of him with his shirt on.

Does that qualify him to be in THE EXPENDABLES 3? I guess so since he has boarded the cast. Word has it that he is meant to fill the "Liam Hemsworth" role in terms of being the younger guy. Also it seems that the latest plot rumors involve the old vs. the new. According to insiders the flick will be about, "introduce a younger group of tech-savvy action heroes who initially clash with the older crew, though they eventually team up to save the day." This conflicts with the plot I brought you a couple of weeks ago. But maybe the two somehow interweave?

Lutz could be an action star within the next 10 or so years. He's got HERCULES and TARZAN up next. Who knows what the future holds. I know I'm a little sad that Nic Cage may not participate, and Mel Gibson isn't confirmed. But it will still be cool, right?

Give him a chance!

Uhh, someone who was involved with the Twilight Franchise - lets just hate him!
Come on people. The cast deserves SOME younger blood and though he hasn't been in the best movies so far, but he can act - just watch HBO's Generation Kill.

Time will tell, but....

......Don't worry, my friends. My guess is this guy's gonna be a part of the "younger" group of mercenaries that make a short appearance in the movie.

I dunno, it seems like with each installment Stallone not only feels the need to up the ante on action but also subplots for a movie. I honestly didn't mind Liam Hemsworth in the E2, his character made sense as to why he would join a group of mercenaries. And the Expendables would have to find new recruits anyways right? And his character served as a much better catalyst for the plot than the girl in E1. I actually thought E2 was the better of the films because of that. I don't know if

I don't know if Lutz will serve a similar purpose, but if the idea is to set up a subplot of th old guys vs. the young guys it could work. Hopefully his involvement is like Chuck Norris or Arnie in E2.

Oh Sly, don't try to cover all the bases. You should know your demographic, we want the ass-kicking action stars of the 80s & 90s. Although I enjoyed EX2, the screen time for each character was too limited. Bringing a younger team of new faces is just going to make that worse.

Gah. They didn't learn anything from putting Thor's younger brother in the second one? That actually worked because you grew to see him as the rookie of the group to whom Barney served as a father figure and felt kinda bad after he was killed. They won't be able to pull that shtick again. Keep Lutz outta this one.

"a younger group of tech-savvy action heroes"? fine, but please, don't bombard the script with old man jokes.
But you just know it will be.

Ugh...

Has Stallone lost sight of what these movies were supposed to be about? Old school action hero's kicking ass the old school way?

I think he improvises a lot and that is why both movies ended up a bit of a mess, (fun - but a mess.)

Even before E2 was in production I remember him mentioning wanting to cast some younger guys to "appeal to the new generation" - which is bizarre because Statham is basically the "new generations" action hero.

The movie sure doesn't need him.

But if he's been "invited" I don't see why he would say no. He's pretty much fell of the face of the earth already. I can't imagine he would turn something like this down.

I don't see how that conflicts with the other rumored plot at all.

Regarding the casting - I trust Stallone. Hemsworth was believable as someone the guys would have taken under their wing.

I'm confused. I thought Mel Gibson was confirmed like three or four times.

I don't know MUCH about Kellan Lutz, except to say he seems to be gearing his career toward action movies, and will probably wind up making almost exclusively Direct-to-DVD but for his involvement with the Expendables. He's a more logical choice than Liam Hemsworth was. But I'll let the die-hards decide if he's REALLY got what it takes.
