Well, not really, but pretty close, if rumors are to be believed.
Now that he’s a free man, Wesley Snipes (remember, kids, always bet on black!) is looking for work. Or at least, he will be soon. According to the NY Daily News’ Confidential, a Hollywood insider tells them that Stallone already has a role gift-wrapped for Snipes if he wants to make “The Expendables 3” his comeback film after a 2-plus-year stint in federal prison for tax evasion.
According to this unnamed insider:
Sly wants to help Wesley get back on his feet. He sees him as a super addition to ‘The Expendables’ in what will be their biggest adventure yet. The script is being processed and Sly wants Wesley to jump on board. Filming is likely to start late this year.
Snipes is still a young pup compared to the rest of the Expendables, at a fresh 50 years old. He’s also got the same Big Screen Action Hero lineage as Stallone, Willis, and Schwarzenegger, and would fit in nicely.
Though I’m still holding out hope he does another “Blade” movie first. The last “Blade” movie, “Blade: Trinity” was barely a “Blade” movie, what with the studio trying to spin-off a movie for Jessica Biel and Ryan Reynolds.
