The Expendables 3

While we don't like posting paparazzi pictures taken of actors in wardrobe on the set of any given film, we're completely fine with the pictures that actors themselves take while in production. Sure, if you search online you can find pictures of a buff Mel Gibson and Sylvester Stallone shooting The Expendables 3, but Arnold Schwarzenegger just posted his own photo from the set with Harrison Ford and director Patrick Hughes. Schwarzenegger seems to be in wardrobe (similar to his End of Days costume), but we're not sure if Ford is or not since he's a licensed pilot, and he could have flown to Bulgaria himself. Look now!

Here's Schwarzenegger's photo from The Expendables 3 from the actor's Instagram:

The Expendables 3 is directed by Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) and written by Sylvester Stallone and Olympus Has Fallen scribes Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt. Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Mel 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 with a new era of Expendables team members, younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The film arrives on August 15th, 2014.

He's got an Expendables badge on his front, so I'd say he's in costume! on Aug 30, 2013

Seeing these great action heroes together is always fun, but I can't help but feel a bit disappointed with the lack of well written dialogue and good interaction between some of the stars. It wouldn't surprise me if Schwarzenegger and Ford are together on screen for less than 60 seconds. I wish Stallone could write like Tarantino. Some of the one-liners genuinely induce a good chuckle or two, but I think these films could be better.

Could not agree more. Exp 1 and 2 were wasted opportunities for sure. Watched them once, yeah but its so so paper thin. The ONLY thing i liked was Van Damme as bad guy. He was indeed bad ass and that Stallone kicked his ass took me out of the entire movie. Why do they always have to kill the Villains? Also see MoS with Zod. Besides that, these movies are a waste of money and time...

Yes, the killing of villains is epidemic in films. It makes no sense since everyone knows these movies are set up to be franchises, so why not do something cool like have Mel Gibson and Van Damme return and team-up in a future film?

These movies have been fun to watch but not because of the story or the acting. Its the fact that all these action icons from past generations have been thrown in front of a camera. It really is to bad that these movies don't offer anything else to the audience. To have action giants Stallone and Schwarzenegger in the same movie is just awesome (though I wanted to see these guys go toe to toe back in the 90's, its still pretty cool) plus Bruce Willis and then they threw in Jean Claude Van Damme, and Chuck Norris in the last movie, it was an "action movie" fans dream come true. I loved all these guys as a kid growing up. Now they have added Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas and Harrison Ford, freakin Zorro, Indiana Jones, and Mad Max lol. This is just ridiculous (but in a good way). Hope they add some substance and upgrade the dialogue a bit in this sequel, either way I will be watching though I won't be expecting much, it will be cool to see all these guys in front of the camera interacting with eachother to some extent.
