Martial arts veteran Steven Seagal seems set for a role in ensemble action sequel The Expendables 3, if a tweet from Sylvester Stallone is anything to go by.
Stallone has hinted that Seagal may join himself, Jason Statham and Jackie Chan in the new movie – if the part is good enough.
Tweeting to his 825,000 followers recently, Stallone wrote:
Just talked to STEVEN S. in Moscow …Sounds great and says he wants to be in EX3, if the part fits….

B-Movie legend Seagal, whose films include Under Siege, The Glimmer Man and Exit Wounds, would be the latest in a long line of action icons to sign-up for the deliberately daft franchise.
Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and Wesley Snipes are apparently confirmed for the third outing, and Stallone recently promised some “big surprises”, adding: “we believe we can do better than The Raid“.
The Expendables 3 is set to be released sometime next year.
