Sylvester Stallone has taken to Twitter to tease forthcoming sequel The Expendables 3, confirming Mickey Rourke’s return before hinting at some other new arrivals. “Mighty Mickey is back” tweeted the action star, revealing that Rourke will return to reprise his role as tattoo artist, Tool. However, Stallone didn’t stop there, hinting that both Jackie Chan and Wesley Snipes are officially on board… Mighty Mickey is back………… — Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) May 16, 2013 What’s the plan? Ask Jackie Chan…. — Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) May 16, 2013 Talked to WESLEY today … He can not WAIT to fight to the top again !!!!!!! Over… — Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) May 16, 2013 As if that wasn’t exciting enough, Stallone also went on to suggest that The Raid would be an influence on the new film… Thinking about Raiding, THE RAID….think about it… — Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) May 16, 2013 We believe we can do better than the RAID, which was an excellent film… Raising the bar… — Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) May 16, 2013 Whether or not that means that he’s looking at the movie for ideas, or whether star Iko Uwais is on his hit-list remains to be seen. Still, it’s not a bad starting point, is it? Directed by Patrick Hughes and with most of the regulars set to return, The Expendables 3 is expected to open some time in 2014.
