Wesley Snipes on for Expendables 3?

Sylvester Stallone has dropped a tantalising tweet, hinting that Wesley Snipes might be on board The Expendables 3 .

Snipes was released from prison in the US in April 2013, after serving more that two years for tax evasion.

Stallone began by teasing his Twitter followers with the possibility of Mel Gibson directing Expendables 5 , before replying to himself with the statement, “Wesley Snipes is BACK!!!! … …with US.”

Of course, he could just be welcoming Snipes back into society after his jail term, but the ‘with us’ part feels like a cryptic confirmation of a role for Snipes in Expendables 3 .

Then again, Stallone also recently confirmed the Easter bunny as the lastest Expendable, so perhaps his Twitter feed shouldn’t be taken as gospel.

Snipes would be a fitting edition to the ever-expanding cast of action heavyweights, with Jet Li and Nicolas Cage among the names expected to be added to the ranks for the proposed threequel.

As of right now, The Expendables 3 lacks a director, a screenwriter and a release date.
