You can add a vampire, a UFC fighter, and a boxer to Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables 3”. The actor/director/producer recently tweeted the addition of Rhonda Rousey, the UFC’s reigning women’s champion, and Victor Ortiz, a Mexican boxer to the cast.
The Wrap, meanwhile, reports that Kellen Lutz (of “Twilight” fame), and who is currently starring in Renny Harlin’s “Hercules 3D”, has also joined the film.
No word on what or who any of the three new castmembers will be playing, but The Wrap says the plot of the threesequel will introduce “a younger group of tech-savvy action heroes who initially clash with the older crew, though they eventually team up to save the day.”
Stallone, meanwhile, recently tweeted this:
Ronda Rousey will show championship form in Expendables 3! So will multi hampion Victor Ortiz!

“Red Hill’s” Patrick Hughes is directing the third movie, which is expected to return pretty much everyone who didn’t die in the first one, including a bunch of new faces.
Things go boom in 2014.
