Sylvester Stallone has taken to Twitter to reveal some new plans for his next in the 'Expendables' series.
Sly is hard at work at the third film, and says that he hopes to get some 'new blood' into the franchise – as well as some old blood in the form of martial arts legend Jackie Chan – and confirms that Steven Seagal won't be aboard.
In a series of tweets, Stallone said: "Writing EX3 at the moment… there are going to be mountains of surprises."
“EX3 needs NEW blood and more humor…. The films were always meant to be more on the humorous side with moments of drama."
“No S. Seagal, sorry, but maybe we get lucky with J. Chan! And 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."
Thus far, Stallone has been keeping the production under wraps, aside from emerging to shoot down rumours that Nicolas Cage had agreed to a role.
Meanwhile, producer Avi Lerner has been a little more free with his information, saying they had approached Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes for parts in the next film.
No word yet on whether any of them have accepted.
