Schwarzenegger and Ford are shooting the action sequel with Sly Stallone for an August 2014 release
Arnold Schwarzenegger has shared a picture of him and Harrison Ford on the set of The Expendables 3. The candid snap, which also features the film’s director Patrick Hughes, appears at the top of this article.
Schwarzenegger posted the photo on his Facebook page on Friday (August 30) with the caption: “It was a fantastic first day of filming on Expendables 3. Great to work with Harrison and our director, Patrick.”
The Expendables 3 is shooting now in Sofia, Bulgaria and the bumper cast of veteran action stars also includes franchise creator Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li and Antonio Banderas. Mel Gibson has enlisted too and will play the film’s villain.
Meanwhile, the recently-released plot synopsis reveals that the film will introduce a “new era of Expendables team members” who are apparently “younger, faster and more tech-savvy”. The so-called “young blood” is being provided by Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz, boxing champion Victor Ortiz, Olympic judo medallist Ronda Rousey and up-and-coming actor Glen Powell.
The Expendables 3 is set for release on August 15, 2014 – just under two years since the release of The Expendables 2.
