Sylvester Stallone took to Twitter today to give an update on the status of The Expendables 3.
He said that he’s writing the third installment right now and that you can expect“mountains of surprises.” He added that he thinks “EX3 needs NEW blood and more humor…. The films were always meant to be more on the humorous side with moments of drama.
Jackie Chan was quoted last December as saying that Stallone had asked him to be in the third film and he “agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.”
Stallone, in his latest tweets, confirmed that he’s talking to Chan, but that Steven Seagal won’t be part of the film. “No S. Seagal, sorry, but maybe we get lucky with J. Chan!”
Then he again mentioned that he is looking to cast “some young bloods!!! By young I mean 22 to 27. Not big bruisers but tech wizard, super brains and a young woman who is not a sex symbol but funny, tough, REAL.”
Who do you think the “young bloods” should be? The first film earned $274.5 million worldwide in 2010 and the second brought in $300 million worldwide last year.
