With Mel Gibson initially rumoured to direct THE EXPENDABLES 3, Showbiz411 is reporting that the LETHAL WEAPON star is actually up for the villain role in the third of Sly Stallone’s action-hero team-up franchise.

It’s previously been reported that Wesley Snipes, Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are all in various stages of talks for the film. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is another name that’s gone on record as saying he’d love to join the series, as well.

Gibson is also set to be seen as the ‘big bad’ in Robert Rodriguez’s MACHETE KILLS later this year.

Expect more on this as it develops.
