  • In other news, Sylvester Stallone tweeted that Bruce Willis will not be in Expendables 3…but Harrison Ford will! I liked the first two films and I’m pretty excited about the news. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Harrison Ford as an action hero. Expendables 3 is set to come out next August and will include the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham and Mickey Rourke with the addition of Wesley Snipes.
