Harrison Ford Joins THE EXPENDABLES 3; Bruce Willis Out [Updated]

The grumpy factor of The Expendables 3 has just undergone a net change of zero.  Sylvester Stallone tweeted earlier today that Bruce Willis is out of the film, but Harrison Ford is now in.  It’s unclear if Ford will be playing Willis’ character from the previous two films or if he’ll be given a new character, but Stallone noted that he has “been waiting years for this” re: working with Ford.  Stallone followed the news up with a tweet that appears to be aimed squarely at Willis: “GREEDY AND LAZY ….. A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”  Red Hill director Patrick Hughes is poised to direct the sequel with a cast that includes Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes, Kellan Lutz, and Milla Jovovich, and we should hear more casting news in the coming weeks.  Rumors have swirled that Mel Gibson will be playing the villain, but we have thus far received no confirmation on that front. [Update: The Wrap's Jeff Sneider confirms Ford will play a new character and is not a direct replacement for Willis.]

Production on Expendables 3 should begin later this year or early next year, as the film is slated for release on August 15, 2014.

    Nicolas Cage is not in this. He’s already said as much.

    As long as Arnold isn’t in it, I’ll be in line.

    first one sucked, second one looked like more of the same and I didn’t see it, this will probably be no different so I have no interest

    • Chris

      Which is why you bothered reading this article and commented on it.

    • MIXTER

      second one was better.

  • RiddleThemThis

    Stallone has also confirmed Victor Otrtiz & Ronda Rousey for the film.

  • MIXTER

    Great news! Hope he gets to use a whip. But with him working on Star Wars, and maybe a 5th Indy film, will he have time?

    And why no Carl Weathers, Jesse Ventura or Mr T. They should be in this series for sure. I like the potential for expendables, second one in particular was kinda a Dirty doesen sort a film.

    • RiddleThemThis

      The lack of Carl Weathers is very disturbing indeed.

      Or maybe he delivers a line like “I always shoot first” or something like that. =)

    I don’t understand how these movies keep getting made. They’re just horrible!

    • RiddleThemThis

      Because people enjoy watching them and want to see more of the same.

        says a lot about mainstream audiences then dont it, how sad

  • no

    Huh, that’s a pretty direct shot at Bruce Willis. Anyone know the details of what may have happened?

    • Strong Enough

      sure just let me call my agent

      • More Than Strong Enough

        Agent? Still working in gay porn?

      • Strong Enough

        still obsessed with me? i’m flattered but a man can only blush so much!

    This franchise suddenly became a whole lot more interesting with this cast. Not that this is a cast of typical action-actors, but definitely interesting.

  • Jamesy

    Kellan Lutz, the dude from Twilight? Why the hell is he involved, just as random as the sequel having mini Thor in it

  • Thomas

    If Arnold the adulterer, and Gibson the racist are in the movie I hope the audience stays away.

    Bring in Kurt Russell! Snake Plissken!

    I’m sad to see Willis go, but Ford will definitely make up for the loss. I used to think that Willis was a great and nice guy, but everything I’ve read recently says otherwise. Quite a shame.

    HOW WILL Milla Jovovich BE IN BOTH THE EXPENDABLES 3, AND RESIDENT EVIL 6? I THOUGHT THAT Harrison Ford WAS BUSY WITH STAR WARS EPISODE VII? Harrison Ford IS NOT BUSY WITH STAR WARS EPISODE VII? I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS HERE.
