Kellan Lutz Up for Expendables 3 Role

With a release date set for August 15, 2014, the cast of The Expendables 3 is beginning to solidify. Today, The Wrap reports that The Twilight Saga star Kellan Lutz is in talks to join Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his team for the action ensemble sequel.

In addition to Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham have been confirmed for the project, which is slated to begin shooting next month in Los Angeles. Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are also rumored to be in advanced negotiations to join the cast as well.

Lutz, who recently starred in Aram Rappaport’s Syrup, can next be seen as the title character in Renny Harlin’s Hercules 3D.
