Randy Couture hints that The Expendables 3 will begin filming this year

Mar. 23, 2012by: Alex Maidy

With THE EXPENDABLES 2 coming in August, costar/MMA champion Randy Couture has already hinted that filming on the third movie in the franchise may begin filming in the fall.

In an interview posted on YouTube, Couture was asked about the upcoming film. His exact words were "Probably gonna start shooting Expendables 3 here in the fall after Expendables 2 comes out in August."

Take this with a grain of salt, but that is a somewhat specific statement to make about when the next film may shoot.

The buzz around THE EXPENDABLES 2 so far has been good, aside from the whole PG-13 vs R rating debate kick-started by Chuck Norris. The first movie was good retro action fun and this one looks to amp it up in every way possible.

Here's the plot synopsis: The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way.

Here is the full interview with Randy Couture.

THE EXPENDABLES 2 opens August 17th, 2012

Extra Tidbit: With Arnold, Sly, and Bruce Willis all starring in wide release action movies in the next few years, it seems to be about that time to bring back Cynthia Rothrock and Michael Dudikoff!

Lundgren

Give him a small role in the next Thor movie. I mean, he is Swedish, and just look at him. :)

I hope they keep making these till I die. I'm 30 so at least another 60 years of kick ass action movies.

If I die before that. Well, I'll be dead so I don't give a fuck.

As the villain perhaps?

And Kurt Russel in a suiting role, sporting the look from escape from New York.

less obvious choices please

I think they already have enough of those steroid bodybuilder action stars (and Jet Li for the martial arts parts.) Maybe a female teammate would be nice. Ziyi Zang could be good, or Maggie Q.
Generally I'd like some less obvious casting choices.
Just for a change: Give me an ex-bond instead. Pierce Brosnan as a sleazy MI6 double-0 agent gone rogue could make a nice ally - or a cool villain.

Yes to Brosnan! I really hope Sly will give him the nod.

With all that has been said about this, I guess either a.) Expendables will become a series of movies that are an excuse for long-in-the-tooth action stars to get another shot at theatrical releases. Who needs a plot, right? But it also means Couture doesn't die here. I really feel like he should've bit it in the first one, his character was so one-dimensional. Either him or Lundgren (and I actually liked Lundgren, but the story would've benefited from his death). Rarely has such a kick-ass

They should cast Tom Hanks in the 3rd one. Fuck it. And then let him beat the holy shit out of some people. Why not, fucking Hemsworth's in there.

The first was an unholy mess of shit and stupid, and is certainly one of the worst action films of all time. I hope this one is better, but I highly doubt it.

I wasn't exactly a fan of the finished product (so much potential, but poorly executed), but I would never accuse it of being one of the worst. It was pretty inconsequential and with the most improbable title.

Louis C.K. has a routine about the word "faggot"...

...anyone who hasn't seen the bit before should YouTube it. The reason I mention Louis C.K.'s rant is that there is simply no better word to describe Chuck Norris than "faggot." There really isn't. He defines the word. I will watch this movie because of Arnie -- I'm stoked to see him return to acting.

Hmmm? seems pretty premature. Should probably wait to see how the second one does first. Yea Kurt Russell would be cool in the third. Hulk Hogan would be interesting too, and Jacki Chan!

And they should really kill some guys off in the second one. Otherwise the cast is just becoming more and more bloated with each installment. The title also kind of demands more of that
