Sly Stallone Confirms Harrison Ford's Role In THE EXPENDABLES 3; Bruce Willis Won't Return
The Expendables 3 star Sylvester Stallone has confirmed on his Twitter account that Star Wars and Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford is officially on board the action threequel. However, he also reveals that Bruce Willis is not returning after featuring in the first two movies.
Casting is underway for the next installment in The Expendables action ensemble series. It was reported earlier this year that Nicolas Cage, Milla Jovovich, Jackie Chan, Kellan Lutz and Wesley Snipes were all in negotiations for roles in the threequel, with franchise regulars such as Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and more also on board. However, Cage recently denied that he was ever in talks for a role in the movie. Mel Gibson is also reportedly set to play the villain, while Steven Seagal is attached.
Now, Stallone (who also wrote the film's screenplay) has confirmed via Twitter that The Expendables 3 has landed another impressive addition: Harrison Ford. Best known for his roles as Han Solo in the original Star Wars trilogy and the titular character in Indiana Jones, the actor will next be seen in August 16th's Paranoia and November 1st's Ender's Game. However, Stallone also says that Bruce Willis - who plays 'Church' in the first two movies - will not be reprising the role for the next film. What do you think of this news? The Expendables 3 is set to hit theaters August 15th, 2014.
