Shooting begins on The Expendables 3

That's in a cinematic sense, although I'm sure the testosterone-induced cast of Sly Stallone's latest entry in the action franchise are also firing guns on set as filming gets underway in Bulgaria.

Yeah, the above photo is from the set.

As we've previously reported, Red Hill director Patrick Hughes is at the helm and Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger are back for another go-around. Joining them are Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson as the main bad dude.

To celebrate, The Basement brings you the official synopsis for The Expendables 3. This way you'll know what to expect when the flick hits theatres next August. Feast your eye holes on this:

Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (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. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.

I like it! The first two Expendables were a lot of fun, and I see no reason not to expect more of the same from a third film. And it'll be great to have Gibson back on the big screen. I'm sure he'll be just as bad ass as Jean-Claude Van Damme was in part two.
