Harrison Ford: Expendables 3 and Indiana Jones 5? All In a Day's Work!

by at . Comments

Harrison Ford may not be fulfilling our dreams of taking over the Star Wars VII movie single handily but that doesn't mean he hasn't been making waves here lately.

Earlier in the day, Ford made the entertainment headlines by saying he'd be on board for an Indiana Jones 5 despite being 71 years old.

"To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened, and that he still managed to survive. That I can do."

You know what Mr. Ford? I believe you. I'll go right along with the idea of another Indiana Jones movie. If it can be worked out that Schwarzenegger is Conan once again, surely we can bring back the fedora.

However, the second news story of the day is a little less exciting.

Maybe it's because I'm a female. Maybe it's because it isn't something legendary like Indiana Jones. Or maybe it's simply because I'm burnt out over the "a new sequel each year" model Hollywood seems to be following of late.

But this news that Harrison Ford has signed on for The Expendables 3 does absolutely nothing for me but cause eye rolling. 

Sylvester Stallone tweeted earlier (Stallone tweets?) that "WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN!!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting for this!!!!"

Am I wrong or did Sylvester Stallone just go fangirl on us?

Either way, it appears as if Bruce Willis is leaving the movie and Harrison Ford is stepping in his place. 

Perhaps Willis saw the writing on the wall and it looked very similar to that of Red 2 and he's the smarter man here? We'll have to see. The Expendables 3 has a planned release on April 15 of next year.
