Parker heavyweight Jason Statham excited by Jackie Chan Expendables 3 rumour

January 16 2013

Action hero Jason Statham who returns to cinemas with Taylor Hackford's Parker has hinted at a possible cast addition to the line up in The Expendables 3.

While he admits that he's only heard rumours at this point, he has expressed his excitement over possible cast additions including Martial Arts legend Jackie Chan, telling Collider "Stallone hasn't said anything but I hear rumours, I should never go with rumours because they're often not correct, but I hear Jackie Chan might be coming to the party and that would make me very happy because I do like Jackie Chan.

I like Jackie because I've been a friend of Jackie's forever. He's broken every bone in his body for his commitment and dedication to doing his own stunts. So he's the real deal."

Chan is just one of the many names rumoured to be in talks to join the third entry of the franchise, other names include Clint Eastwood, Nicolas Cage, Harrison Ford, Mickey Rourke and Wesley Snipes.

Statham added "There's a ton of rumours. But the thing is, the magic wand comes from Sly. He will either 'yes' you or 'no' you. So yeah, Expendables 3. Here we go. Strap yourselves in!"

Statham will be seen in the aforementioned Parker alongside Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis, Nick Nolte and Clifton Collins Jr. when it hits UK cinemas on March 8.
