The Expendables 3 is an upcoming action film directed by Patrick Hughes and is a sequel to the 2012 film, The Expendables 2.
In March 2012, Couture stated that a third installment of The Expendables could enter production in late 2012, following the release of The Expendables 2. In April 2012, Steven Seagal said that he had been offered a role in a third film. Producer Avi Lerner also stated that the producers were intending to bring back the series' current stars, attempting to have Rourke reprise his role, had already approached Clint Eastwood about a role, and had plans to pursue Harrison Ford and to approach Wesley Snipes following his release from prison. Stallone said: "We are thinking about different concepts – the third one is the hardest. The second is the natural progression. The third, that’s when the air gets rare. We’re thinking ambitiously about it... You now have to give audiences something they don’t expect at all – maybe even going into a different genre. Stallone confirmed on April 2013 that indie filmmaker Patrick Hughes would direct the second sequel. On May 22, Stallone confirmed he needed a "Young Sigourney Weaver" and after passing on Milla Jovovich, started eying other MMA talent Ronda Rousey.
On October 22, Stallone announced via Twitter that the film had been fully completed and applauded castmembers Grammer, Snipes, Banderas and Ford.
Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
In the beginning of the film on a plane, one of them asks their new member how come he was in prison, he said, "Tax invision". Stop at 17:15.
