Movies has unleashed this “Roll Call” teaser trailer for ‘The Expendables 3.’ Opening in cinemas on August 15th, the film stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell and Kelsey Grammar.
In ‘The Expendables 3,’ 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.
According to THR, Will Ferrell is set for a lead role in ‘Match Maker,’ a sports comedy about the legendary conflict between Bobby Riggs (Ferrell) and Billie Jean King. Additionally, Steven Conrad has come aboard to write the script for the project, which is being developed by Chernin Entertainment and Gary Sanchez Productions.
‘Match Maker’ adapts the ESPN Magazine article “The Match Maker: Bobby Riggs, The Mafia and The Battle of the Sexes” penned by Don Van Natta Jr. The feature covers the infamous rivalry between Bobby Riggs, a tennis champ past his prime who came out of retirement to challenge women’s tennis player King in a 1973 game that became known as “The Battle of the Sexes”. Over 50 million Americans tuned in to watch Billie Jean King beat Riggs and win the $100,000 prize. It was later postulated that Riggs lost on purpose in order to erase some gambling debts he had to the mob.
