Sylvester Stallone took to his Twitter account last night, revealing a barrage of information regarding The Expendables 3. The actor/producer says that he is 'raiding' the The Raid: Redemption cast (most likely star Iko Uwais), and then teased that Jackie Chan is also joining the cast. He confirms that Mickey Rourke and Wesley Snipes are pretty much on aboard as well, but as we've seen with this franchise, anything can and will change at the last minute. Take a look at this series of tweets, then read on for more information.
