Gibson On His Way

Martin Riggs himself, Mel Gibson, will be in Bulgaria by the weekend. Obviously, from his recent picture, he has been keeping in tremendous shape. He will be the toughest villain yet in this franchise. I can't wait to see what he will bring to his character. I certainly hope there is a great, extended fight scene between him and one of the good guys.

Ronda Rousey is on her way also. She just Tweeted - "Last day of training in LA before leaving for Sofia Bulgaria to film Expendables 3...."

Another Bulgarian news article translates as...

"Help our boat with divers guard and watch over the security of stuntmen and actors Sylvester Stallone's action "Expendables 3" which started filming at sea.Following the agreement with Varna port set to move in 6 hours 10 berth at the pier. "Somali" chase boats on water at 35-40 knots, equivalent to 50-60 km / h and there is a risk or a camera man come off the board. Then trained divers jump into the sea to rescue equipment and people. Ship "Ilse" in the same berth was ready to load Bulgarian grain, but waited to take the picture. According to unofficial information dock warehouses to the port were from early in the morning Sylvester Stallone and Jason Staten. Than boats and a helicopter flew dangerously .Varna Mayor Ivan Portnih accepted in his cabinet Hollywood producer and owner of "New Image" Avi Lerner. "Much like the location of the port of Varna, which is very suitable for filming. Filming with a helicopter - a great action movie with a big budget," said the producer.He invited the Mayor set to meet with the stars of American cinema production - Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Jason Staton. Over 1,200 people are hired for the shoot in Varna, said the guest. During the meeting they discussed the possibilities of tax incentives for foreign producers."

And yet one more...

Some of them even managed to be photographed with their pets and their autograph.Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Wesley Snipes arrived in Bulgaria on Sunday late night. They were housed in incognito hotel "Imperial".Yesterday began the first day of shooting of "The Expendables 3" near the shipyard "Bulyard" in Varna. Because of Sly, Statham and Snipes team of Hollywood super extras are banned to import phones, cameras and any filming equipment. All who enter the set are checked.On site is built decor, which should resemble landscapes from Somalia. For this purpose, since dawn of the factory buses arrived with statins. They are selected mainly among blacks students in the country. They will be guarding the Somali Mafia, whose role is played by Wesley Snipes. At least 500 people were on the set.These days expected sea capital to arrive and the other stars of "The Expendables 3".

Photos in Varna will continue until the middle of next week.

Good stuff, folks. This movie is gonna be EPIC!


  1. Great art work Jeff. New EXBlog team is tech-savvy!

  2. So, why Rousey goes so soon to the shooting on Sofia? Will she move to Varna?

    1. the filming in Varna will last until Aug 30. She's going there soon to set up her training camps for her UFC match in December. she'll be training there while filming. She probably wont be part of the Varna shooting because she comes in later in the story as one the young Expendables

  3. You rock Jeff B, the Gibson picture is awesome

  4. So soon? Filming has started! Arnold, Mel, Ortiz will all be there in a few days.

  5. I want to see Arnold and Mel land in Bulgaria and that chick

  6. I meant Not that chick...

  7. Maybe, but at least wait till the movie comes out to decide.

  8. Hey somebody tell me that when ARNOLD will start shooting??????????????

  9. I do not feel she will be a waste. She may be really fun to watch.She may tease couture's character b/c their characters and real life come from the same hand to hand combat...I do know with the young bloods entering there will be a lot of humor. Rumor's have it that she has a sizeable part. Plus I've seen her fight she as badass as Randy.
