Harrison Ford joins 'Expendables 3,' while 'lazy' Bruce Willis bows out

Bruce Willis won't be back for the third go round, but Harrison Ford is on tap to replace him in the franchise, THR confirms.

Sylvester Stallone announced the news on Tuesday (Aug. 6) via Twitter: "WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!" (Creative punctuation and spacing all a product of Stallone's, natch.)

He followed his announcement up with a jab at Willis, tweeting, "GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE."

Lionsgate has the Nu Image/Millennium Films action-adventure threequel set to open Aug. 15, 2014. Stallone returns as Barney Ross, the leader of a group of mercenaries that undertakes seemingly impossible missions. This time around, Jackie Chan and Nicolas Cage are due to take part in the fun, as well.

Is Ford a good replacement for Willis?
