Sly Stallone let the cat out of the bag on Twitter about Expendables 3: “WILLIS OUT… HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!”
So yeah, Bruce Willis isn’t returning to the franchise…does anyone care? No, of course not…cause Harrison freakin Ford is joining! I never thought I’d see that. I would have thought Harrison would have felt a little above these thrown-together action flicks that get all the 1980s-90s action stars together, but maybe Harrison is looking forward to having a chuckle on set at all these has-beens trying to pull off their old moves.
After only coming out with a movie here and there the past few years, Ford has been working hard lately with his buzzed-about performance in this spring’s 42 (could Oscar come calling?), and his upcoming flicks Paranoia, the highly-anticipated Enders Game, and an appearance in Anchorman 2. Oh, and there’s some other franchise that he’s returning to. Something about a battle in space?
The third Expendables movie will hit theatres on August 15, 2014, with Jackie Chan and Nicolas Cage also joining the cast. I can’t wait for a Ford/Cage staredown. Sorry, Cage. You’ll lose.
