Sly talks Expendables 3 on Twitter

By Webmaster on March 25, 2013 / 1 min read

From his recent posts on Twitter, it’s clear that Sylvester Stallone is having fun with The Expendables.

Sly took to the microblogging service recently to post a few updates on the tone of The Expendables 3, which he is currently developing, along with a few thoughts on casting new roles.

For those wondering what will follow his recent action thriller Bullet to the Head, Stallone will next be seen in Escape Plan (formerly The Tomb) opposite Expendables co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger, which hits cinemas on September 13, 2013. After that, you can expect to see Sly in the boxing comedy Grudge Match with Robert De Niro, which should debut early next year.

Sly's Twitter pageSo, back to Sly’s posts on Twitter. It all started out innocently enough with this status update:

He then began to talk about the general tone of the second sequel:

As the fans got more and more excited, Sly began to tease more details about the casting of the film, hinting at the possibility of more ‘young blood’ in the picture:

He clarified his thoughts on this with one final tweet:

Exciting stuff, we’re sure you’ll agree, and with Sly on our screens more than ever these days it’s a great time to be a Stallone fan.

Are you looking forward to the third instalment of The Expendables? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Sly, Hello! My family and I can't want for the Expendibles3. Many of your movies have helped to shape me into the woman I've become along with an amazing mother and tremendous brother. I wish you continued success! Maria (Aurora, CO)

    William Kaufman is a young director with home good stuff behind him. Dolph and Cuba rocked in One in the Chamber. I live in Odessa, Ukraine and know that you have family here. :) I'm retired from US military and chose Odessa as a retirement home because of its location and the great people.

    Good Eve SLy, Hugh Jackman would be a great addition to the Expendables Team!!! The man's got FIRE!! and he'll set the screen on FIRE.. Bye C ya.

  • Hunter PattonJune 4, 2013

    I would to see a nother Rambo to. Make the full circle.

  • robJune 3, 2013

    Jackie Chan would be awesome!! And her is an idea that you may not thought of...add Harrison ford to the lineip. And make vin diesel a villain. And I think you should make an Apollo creed back story movie too. Will smiths son would make a great young Apollo creed don't you think?

  • JorMay 29, 2013

    Pitty about Seagal! Jackie Chan is a smart choice. I would love to see Mel Gibson and a cameo of Clint Eastwood though. No young bloods, please. Keep it Old School!

  • DeniseMay 26, 2013

    Dear Stallone , i have saw all EX movies and i mean youre a very good writer and all respect to you. Good lucky at the futer. Love Denise from Germany/Bremen

  • Maurice JenkinsMay 25, 2013

    The ultimate lineup for ex 3 imo would be: Wesley Snipes Kurt Russell Tony Jaa Micheal Biehn and maybe Michael Jai White..just a thought!! No Jackie Chan tho :/

  • Julia-SelinaMay 21, 2013

    Hi Sly, I'm looking forward to totally Expendables 3 ^_^ I'll go to the movies again with my brother. If I could, I would love to play. *lol* Kiss and Hugs Julia-Selina from Hamburg, Germany

  • Lucas DuckMay 13, 2013

    Mr Stallone!!! I can picture a great closure to the expendable trilogy by You and Arnie Teaming up with your young blood hollywood legacy: Vin Disel and Dwayne johnson. That would be epic. Only You can do it, and I know that those 2 will be honored to work with you!!! Go for the best!!! As u always did. Long life Sly, thanks for the great memories

  • Georgios P.April 26, 2013

    Karl Urban made a great appearence in "Dredd". Could be a choice.

  • gheaApril 24, 2013

    how about Alex Pettyfer? or taylor lautner may be

  • TjarkApril 21, 2013

    Why no Steven Seagal?? He could´ve been as good as a very cool "bad ass"- guy or a new ´support member´ for sly´s team like good 'ole chuck;-) Maybe we get surprised++

  • Cabal from Tiberian SunApril 20, 2013

    Michael Biehn, Sly we need him! Seriously

  • Theresa M.April 19, 2013

    Dear Mr. Stallone: If you're looking for young blood what about Robert Pattinson? I bet he actually could do a millitary role well if he had a bit of coaching. And what about Kristin Stewart if you're looking for a younger female. Plus she looks like she could be related to you, like a niece. Why not build on their relationship in a positive way. So many people seem to want to sabotage their relationship, it's getting really irritating. At least you avoid giving women combat roles and you don't over-inflate the female roles in your movies. (When female actors get over-inflated film roles it tends to ruin their personal lives because then men resent them and abandon them. Case in point: Marilyn Monroe.) Robert and Kristin really present an important role model of a straight relationship which is greatly needed these days. Sincerely, Theresa M.

  • PaulApril 17, 2013

    What about Kurt Russell.Great pairing.If not why not another Tango and Cash

  • Matthew BensonApril 17, 2013

    Sly, The Mel Gibson idea is inspired. He would be an awesome director. He would be a great villain too! Perhaps he could do both, directing and acting. He's a guy who wants redemption and a chance to prove that he's still an amazing actor so it would be a real win-win for both of you. What a coup if you can get him. Keep after him! Another couple of great choices for directors for you would be John Woo or Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger is still is your best action movie, for it's epic canvas and sweep, in my opinion). All the best and would love a reply, Matt

  • david morseApril 16, 2013

    Stallone i live in vegas brother you are a very smart man and you know what to do when you are in front of the camera, that also goes for behind the camera too. i just have hope that one day i will be able to shake your hand. you will always be my icon and hero and i honor that you are rocky and rambo. i still cheer for you buddy and always will.

    Sly, you have noone to proove anything. Do what your instinct tells you. You always knew what to do. Greetings George

  • Francisco Morales OlguínApril 14, 2013

    I´d love to see Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Michael Biehn, Carl Weathers and Michael Dudikoff...

  • Francisco Morales OlguínApril 14, 2013

    Mr. Stallone... Mel Gibson directing the Expendables 3 is great for shure... but it can better: why not Mel Gibson´s participation is acting??!! Please! I´m sure many action fans we´d love see Gibson in your expendables team! Maybe Gibson and Danny Glover helping expendables in some topic... please, please... Gibson is great! 80´s and 90´s Action movies rocks (because of you, Arnie, Willis, Van Damme and Gibson), it would be cool, wonderful...

  • anton south africaApril 12, 2013

    Sly another rambo will be great to me you are the best I love your movies keep on with the great work there is and always will be only one Sylvester Stallone God bless

  • HrishiApril 12, 2013

    Hey Sly, would love to see Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson in Ex3. Another Rambo please. C ya. Take Care.

  • GeorgiosApril 7, 2013

    "The dirty Dozen" was a great film. I recognize some of the features in the "Expandables".

  • Noelia López, someone who loves you.April 7, 2013

    I'm from Uruguay and we have no even Expendables 2. It's hard to be your fan from here, because things are always late. Perhaps too. And so, I just want you say that I will not stop until you know that I exist. You are my dream and I will come true this dream. With all the respect in the world. I know EX3 will be excellent. And I would very much like J. Chan will appear! I hope that you can! He put a lot of humor. I love you, Noelia from Montevideo, Uruguay (Latin America is present).♥ Sorry for my English. I will get a photo with you, I know. Haha :)

  • Chloe B.April 6, 2013

    I'm soo excited!! It will be great! I also would love to see another Rambo come out! Your movies NEVER get old!

  • MoboApril 6, 2013

    Your villain = Timothy Dalton. Do it, Sly!

  • Mike KirklandApril 3, 2013

    Mr. Stallone, you are one of my favorite all time actors. Keep up the excellent work & i hope to see Expendables 3 & Rambo 5 soon. Take care & God bless

  • HrishiApril 3, 2013

    Hey Sly, Loved the 2 expendables. Would like to see more blood and gore in the 3rd installment. We dont want to see all 80s action heroes to SMILE. Everybody I mean Yourself, DOlph,Arnold, have their own Charm and personna. Another jungle actioner like John Rambo would be great rather than a funnier film with drama. Make these guys kill a lot of people a very deadly background score and ONE LINERS. Bye See you.

  • GiovanniApril 1, 2013

    I'm not too much of a movie freak but I have definitely seen enough to say, I'm going to give it a go! Thanks for the share!

  • juliaApril 1, 2013

    Decided to grab hold of the first two for home. Another of the same genre? And the possibility of some sort of new "blood"? Something to think about - thank you!

  • isaac borrelliMarch 30, 2013

    hi barney ross i love both expendables movies and you are my most fav actor u should consider carl weathers in the 3 rd ependables and also will u make rambo5 look foward to a reply your mate isaac

  • joaquinMarch 26, 2013

    Please, take the third one in a more serious way. No more I'll Be Back jokes. Personally, I wanna see some deads in the team and a lot of violence. You don't get the more important heroes of the 80s to chat and smile. Blood, big guns and a lot of action. I know that Sly is thinking in another direction, but the last one was a mistake. The real heroes dies in flames.

  • AndreaMarch 26, 2013

    Sly is the best writer of the action cinema! and best actor too!! Regards from Italy

  • Georgios P.March 26, 2013

    P.S. If you need an extra, i am available :) i can play a tree, a bush, even a rock. greetings George

  • Georgios P.March 26, 2013

    Of course. I enjoyed the last films. To give more substance to the Name "Expendables", how about bringing back some old stars like Micheal Biehn (Aliens, Terminator), Micheal Pare, Carl Weathers, Dudikoff, etc from the 80s'. They are "expendable" now, but still remembable actors. They third could be more "Rambo"-like, playing in a fantastic natural environment (desert, caves, djungel..), where two specializes teams faces each other. I did not like this urban feeling in last films (with "kids" and women). Just my oponion.

  • АлександрMarch 25, 2013

    С нетерпением буду ждать Неудержимых 3. Надеюсь на ещё более захватывающий сюжет и ржачные сцены. Мы в тебя верим - Слай.
