Wesley Snipes - Randy Couture: 'Wesley Snipes Is Onboard For The Expendables 3'

Newly-freed Wesley Snipes has officially signed up to make his Hollywood return in the third installment of Sylvester Stallone's action epic The Expendables, according to his new co-star Randy Couture.

The Blade star has been on house arrest since his release from prison on 2 April (13) after serving a 27-month stint for tax evasion, and he's already secured his first new project to help relaunch his movie career.

Couture has confirmed the casting news to the New York Daily News and he can't wait to start working with martial arts expert Snipes.

Discussing possible plotlines for The Expendables 3, the retired wrestler-turned-actor says, "I would probably rather be on his side. But if not, I think (my character) Toll Road can handle him."

However, Couture admits he has no idea what kind of role Snipes will play, or if rumours of Mel Gibson joining the cast too are true: "They keep that stuff pretty close to their vests."

Stallone recruited action men like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Couture and Mickey Rourke for his first film, and he has added Snipes, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris to the line-up for the upcoming second sequel, which will begin pre-production this summer (13).

Snipes and Stallone starred opposite each other in 1993 action hit Demolition Man.
