Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz Enlist for The Expendables 3

July 23, 2013


Following news earlier today of The Twilight Saga's Kellan Lutz joining the cast of The Expendables 3, comes word, via Sylvester Stallone's Twitter feed, that mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey and welterweight boxer Victor Ortiz will be joining the ensemble as well.

In addition to Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham have been confirmed for the project, which is slated to begin shooting next month in Los Angeles. Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are also rumored to be in advanced negotiations to join the cast as well.

The Expendables 3 will mark the acting debut of both Rousey and Ortiz. The former is the first American woman to have ever taken home an Olympic medal for Judo (a bronze in the 2008 summer games in Beijing) while the latter emerged as WBC's welterweight champion in 2011. He also recently appeared on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

The Expendables 3 will be directed by Patrick Hughes and will arrive in theaters on August 15, 2014.
