The filming of The Expendables 3 has official started in Bulgaria.
While on set, Arnold Schwarzenegger snapped a photo and shared it with his 170,000-plus followers on Instagram. Donning pair of aviators with a cigar in his mouth, the actor posed with director Patrick Hughes and co-star Harrison Ford -- adding a caption that read, "It was a fantastic first day of filming on Expendables 3. Great to work with Harrison and our director, Patrick."
The third installment of The Expendables will see Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews return for the action thriller.
Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, UFC fighter Ronda Rousey and boxing champion Victor Ortiz will also be joining the star-studded cast.
The day Stallone announced Bruce Willis' exit in the film, he also told fans about Ford joining the threequel. Willis was dropped from the movie after demanding $1 million a day, a source told The Hollywood Reporter.
The Expendables 3 will be released by Lionsgate on Aug. 15, 2014.
