Jackie Chan confirms involvement in Expendables 3

Jackie Chan has confirmed that he will appear in The Expendables 3 .

The action star announced his involvement at a press conference for CZ12 (AKA Chinese Zodiac ).

“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.”

He also said that the next film he’s working on could possibly become Rush Hour 4 . Going by the working title Skip Tracer , the film’s said to be another East-meets-West comedy, and Chris Tucker’s apparently 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.”

The Expendables 3 doesn’t have a release date pencilled in, but with Stallone lining up ageing action stars like they’re going out of fashion (erm…) expect more news on this one soon.
