Sylvester Stallone tweeted on Tuesday that Bruce Willis is out of The Expendables 3 , but Harrison Ford is now in.
Ford is not a direct replacement for Willis and will play a new character and not Willis’ character from the previous two films. Back on April 15th, Wesley Snipes also joined the cast.
As of May 2013, Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan and Milla Jovovich were rumored to be joining the cast, though their involvement has yet to be confirmed or denied. While Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, and Randy Couture are all expected to return. Mickey Rourke is also coming back to reprise his role as Tool after missing “The Expendables 2”.
Production should begin later this year or early next. “The Expendables 3” scheduled to hit theaters on August 15, 2014.
