Yippie-ki-yay, mother lover. Sylvester Stallone confirmed today ([via Twitter](https://twitter.com/TheSlyStallone/status/364831174075486208), of course) that Bruce Willis is being exchanged wholesale for Harrison Ford in the upcoming *Expendables 3*. According to further tweets, there’s quite a spat forming between Stallone and Willis, with the former calling the latter “greedy and lazy”. Fighting talk indeed.
This is good news on a few levels. Firstly, it seems like the franchise is going down the *Fast & Furious* angle of openly acknowledging the “joke” and playing up to it. So, more fun like the second *Expendables* and less like the more serious original. Secondly, Harrison Ford is making some great choices at the moments where he seems to *actually* be having fun, something that couldn’t be said while viewing the excretable *Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull*.
So, with Ford joining a rapidly ballooning cast that already includes Nicolas Cage, Mel Gibson and Jackie Chan, *Expendables 3* could be a perfect slice of self-aware cinema escapism. Just add popcorn.
