Harrison Ford Confirmed for 'The Expendables 3' But Bruce Willis Out
Okay, this is getting out of control, but in a good way. The Expendables 3 is already boasting one of the most impressive casts ever assembled for an action film, at least when it comes to veteran action stars. Sylvester Stallone leads the pack and he's joined by familiar franchise faces like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren and new cast members like Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Milla Jovovich (Nicolas Cage is not confirmed). Now the unthinkable has happened with Stallone confirming on Twitter that Harrison Ford has joined the cast, but Bruce Willis will not return.
Ford has been wanted for the franchise since Avi Lerner mentioned his name last summer just before The Expendables 2 hit theaters. With Ford joining up and Mel Gibson seemingly playing the villain, this could turn out to be more fun than the second film, which was vastly more entertaining than the first adventure, which seemed to take itself too seriously. It would be nice if Cage ended up getting involved, but we're happy with the cast as it stands right now. Eventually Stallone is going to have to bring people back from the dead to make these films any bigger. The Expendables 3 arrives on August 15th, 2014.
