Do the Expendables have a brave heart?
It is a question that Sylvester Stallone seems to want answering. Taking to Twitter a few hours ago he wrote:
What about Mel Gibson directing EXPENDABLES FIVE???
No , I was kidding about , but seriously , what about Mel Gibson directing EXPENDABLES 3? Opinions anyone ? Curious.....
Well so are we. We want to know! What do you think?
Personally, while I am 99.9% sure that, if I was in a room with the man, we wouldn't get on or agree on very much, I think it would be a very interesting idea.
Gibson has a great action star heritage, his directed films, while not exactly action, are big enough in scope that he could take on an Expendables film, he is also a very successful director with his films having high grosses and I, also, wouldn't be adverse to him having a cameo either.
The Expendables films are all about nostalgia and Gibson is a huge part of that 80s/90s action landscape (like an Aussie Bruce Willis almost) and also I am not the biggest fan of Simon West's directing of part 2. I think if they don't get a surprise, interesting director choice like a John Woo, a Mel Gibson or even someone weird like a James Glickenhaus then Sly himself should get back into the Director's chair. He's the best man for the job. Definitely.
We want to hear from you though - are we ready to forgive Gibbo or not?
