You can tell Sylvester Stallone is having a helluva good time with The Expendables franchise, but the writer/director/actor wants to bring a bit more humor into the mix.  Taking to Twitter this evening, Stallone commented on the tone of The Expendables 3which he is currently writing, and hopefully getting Jackie Chan into the cast as was previously rumored.  He also gave a brief update on an action star who would not be making the cut and alluded to an injection of “young blood” into the franchise.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

Writing EX3 at the moment… there are going to be mountains of surprises.

EX3 needs NEW blood and more humor…. The films were always meant to be more on the humorous side with moments of drama

No S. Seagal, sorry ,but maybe we get lucky with J. Chan! And some young bloods!!!

By young I mean 22 to 27. Not big bruisers but tech wizard, super brains and a young woman who is not a sex symbol but funny ,tough,REAL

So it looks as if Chan isn’t confirmed just yet, which probably has a lot to do with scheduling conflicts.  He’d certainly bring his own signature action to the franchise which is chock full of fun, right in line with what Stallone wants to see.  It looks like Steven Seagal will be on the sidelines for the third installment, though I don’t know if Stallone even approached the Lawman.  While he didn’t mention anyone by name, Stallone seems eager to bring in some younger, up-and-coming action stars to take over the franchise from the aging veterans.

Take a look at some of our recent coverage of The Expendables 3 below and let us know who you’d like to see join the cast in the comments:
