First we have this photo of Dolph Lundgren and Glen Powell on the set of EX3 as well as some new information about the filming schedule and an action scene that will be set (but not filmed) in Romania. Below is a rough translation of this article from the Bulgarian site 24chasa:"Expendables 3" will show as Sofia Romanian city. Within a few days the team of Sylvester Stallone, who has two months in the country to film the third part of the action movie "The Expendables" will close the city center. The area around the hotel "Sheraton" and Party House - is now the second building of the National Assembly, the team has a plan to shoot footage of many bodies and explosions.
Actually, the action will be filmed in the city center, but the script is called the Romanian city. It is very likely that this is Bucharest, capital of Romania.
Actors to plan to shoot this scene next week. In recent days, however, their program are often amended at the last minute, said people in the cinema center "Boyana". There is talk that the cause is a mild illness Sylvester Stallone. Gibson, however, is on the set. Yesterday, the American actor has shot important scenes action from morning to evening in Boyana.
By the end of this week, the team has to move and the government residence "Lozenets". It is also included in the program of Stallone, he even has official permission to film inside and in the courtyard of the military club."Here's another article talking about the filming of this action scene with a photo of the location. It looks interesting, we haven't really seen The Expendables in an urban setting like that before:
"With bombs, bullets and corpses will swamp the city center Sylvester Staluon next weekend. Hollywood actor has been allowed to shoot footage for his film "The Expendables 3" bash the city center around the former Party House, and the presidency and that a lot of action scenes, weapons, explosives and killed. Metropolitan Municipality of Sofia residents warned not to scare that something terrible is happening such as attack if they see how shoot bombs and flying debris.
A story action in these frames are not developed in Bulgaria and Romania."
This is an interesting interview with Arnold and Stallone. Five minutes in they start talking about Expendables 3 and Schwarzenegger mentions filming a scene with Jet Li.
Our last bit of Expendables 3 news is a quick message from Robert Davi on twitter
: "'just got to Bulgaria - start shooting tomorrow -- EXPENDABLES 3"
With Mel Gibson and Robert Davi now on set and this action scene happening in the city hopefully some great photos will turn up next week!
Stallone appeared on The David Letterman show last night where he talked about the Rocky broadway musical, his rivalry with Arnold Schwarzenegger (6 minutes in if you want to skip to that part), filming Grudge Match, his paintings, and Escape Plan. Everything but Expendables 3 basically! Stallone was funny here and it's a good interview so I recommend watching the whole thing.
We also have a clip of Arnold and Stallone at the Escape Plan premiere:
Plus another Escape Plan interview with them. They do show a lot of clips here so beware if you want to avoid seeing too much.
Lastly we have a new Grudge Match poster as well as a photo from the movie.
