Sylvester Stallone wants Mel Gibson to direct 'Expendables 3,' confirms Wesley Snipes will co-star

sylvester-stallone-wesley-snipes-demolition-man-dvd-cover.jpgSylvester Stallone has been tweeting up a storm about upcoming sequel "The Expendables 3," revealing that fresh-out-of-prison Wesley Snipes will co-star ("Demolition Man" reunion!) and the cast would be "blessed" to have Oscar winner Mel Gibson as a director.

Stallone chose Twitter to confirm the previously speculated Snipes news (oddly directed at himself, so it doesn't show up in his main feed):

And then Stallone clarified what had at first seemed like a joke about Mel Gibson joining "The Expendables" directing team. (Stallone directed the first film himself, while Simon West handeled the sequel.)

Stallone has also made it clear his goal is to get Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford on board "The Expendables" train (good luck with that), but more realistic rumors have been circulating that Nicolas Cage is likely to join in the threequel, possibly as a villain.
