Finally, it sounds like we have confirmation of sorts that Stallone is actually pursuing a female action star for a lead role in Expendables 3. Milla Jovovich is in advanced talks to join the boys club and likely adding to the body count. She's best known for C-Level action flicks along with the successful "I can't believe it's still around" Resident Evil franchise. Originally, Sly had thrown Gina Carano's name but her demand might be a little too high this time around. The talks also include Wesley Snipes, Jackie Chan and possibly Nicolas Cage taking roles as well.
It's expected Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger will return as well. Aussie newcomer Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) has been chosen to direct the third installment. The studio has set the release date for August 15th 2014. John Woo (MI2, The Killer, Hard Boiled, Face/Off) and Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Passion of The Christ) had been names previously linked for the director's chair.
