kellan lutz the expendables 3 gi Kellan Lutz in 'The Expendables 3'? 'Twilight Saga' star in talks

The man formerly known as Emmett Cullen might be able to put his buff looks to good use. Kellan Lutz is reportedly in talks for a role in the upcoming “The Expendables 3.”

TheWrap broke the news, and the casting is far from set in stone. Still, it makes sense that Lionsgate would want to continue to draw young — and hopefully female — viewers into the “Expendables” franchise like they did by casting Liam Hemsworth in “The Expendables 2.”

Sources say “The Expendables 3” will “introduce a younger group of tech-savvy action heroes who initially clash with the older crew, though they eventually team up to save the day.” It sounds like Lutz could be one of several young action stars who could come to the forefront in this flick.

“The Expendables 3” is being directed by Patrick Hughes, and is due in theaters on Aug. 15, 2014. It’s expected to start shooting in Aug. 2013.
