Jackie Chan to Join The Expendables 3 Cast

Jackie Chan has confirmed his involvement in the third installment of the Expendables franchise, during a press conference for CZ12 (Chinese Zodiac). Chan was originally invited to join the cast of Expendables 2 but declined the opportunity. Chan explained the reason why:

“Sly had invited me to be in Expendables 2 but I was too busy filming CZ12 and couldn’t make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.”

Chan also stated that the next film he’s working on could turn into Rush Hour 4, but the working title is currently Skip Tracer, with Chris Tucker already looking at the script:

“The script is currently viewed by Chris Tucker. Personally, I feel that if he were to pick it up, it would be better if we turned it into Rush Hour 4 but I do think that three movies for the franchise is a perfect ending. It would be better to start a new buddy movie with someone new.”
