Like he basically did in Air Force One, Harrison Ford is set to again serve as a loose replacement for action-mode Bruce Willis. "WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!!", Sylvester Stallone today tweeted (via) about the cast of his second Expendables sequel. "GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!"
Indeed, at least a year ago Stallone expressed interest in getting Ford--as well as Clint Eastwood, Wesley Snipes, and Nicolas Cage--to join his latest fantasy recreation of his glory years. Eastwood remains unlikely, as he's too busy guiding the similar "walk like a man" machismo of Jersey Boys, but otherwise Stallone has been largely successful in his casting, now seemingly securing Ford alongside Snipes and Cage, as well as Mel Gibson, Jackie Chan, and Milla Jovovich. Sly also recently agreed to coach Apollo Creed's grandson in yet another Rocky movie, and will next star alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger to break out of a prison, because did I mention we've for a while been living in Sylvester Stallone's dream?
