Harrison Ford Joins THE EXPENDABLES 3, Bruce Willis Departs

Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
And with a tweet it was so. Of course, there's so much we don't see behind the scenes, but Expendables mastermind Sylvester Stallone took to his Twitter today to make a double whammy of an announcement with this exclamation laden tweet:

WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!

What Ford's role is in the Patrick Hughes directed threequel has yet to be revealed, although knowing Sly and these movies, he's going to be playing a surly, older gentleman who used to kick a lot of ass. Still, one can hope Ford will finally be getting that shot at playing one half of a Siamese twin mime duo, can't they? 

Meanwhile, Willis stepping down from his nearly cameo status role is by no means devastating news as it seems actors enter and exit the Expendables bus like it's public transportation. Still on board are Expendables old hands Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, Terry Crews and Randy Couture, with the likes of Wesley Snipes, Steven Seagal and Jackie Chan joining them to face off against villainous Mel Gibson (wait, is that a pleonasm?).

    Plus in his subsequent tweet, Sly called (presumably) Steven Seagal "greedy and lazy". Looks like the fat Sensei has just burned another bridge.

    I think you mean pleonasm, not oxymoron... Not that I agree anyway. But great news !

    Yes, I suppose I do. Sorry. I didn't really go to school past the 4th grade. And that is not a joke.

  • Jarrad

    sure it wasn't Bruce Sly was referring to given Bruce's recent round of interviews in the UK where he didn't give a shit about the movie he was supposed to be promoting....

  • Qinlong

    It might be, but they've been great friends for a long time (Bruce was present for Sly's birthday last month), I don't see Sly turning on Bruce for a series of bitched interviews (which is no new thinhs for Willis).
