Mel Gibson to Star as Villain in The Expendables 3

by at . Comments

Mel Gibson is set to make an explosive movie comeback.

The mostly hated upon actor will star in The Expendables 3 as that action film's main villain, writer/producer Sylvester Stallone confirmed today.

Gibson, Mel

The announcement comes on the heels of a few other headlines related to the surefire blockbuster:

  • Bruce Willis reportedly balked at a mere $3 million for a few days of work. He insisted on $4 million... and was axed from the franchise.
  • But Harrison Ford is now on board!
  • Antonio Banderas will also appear in The Expendables 3, with Stallone referring to his former Assassins co-star as “a consummate actor and a gentleman” in a statement. We'll take that as a veiled shot at Willis.
