Sylvester Stallone called out ex-costar Bruce Willis on Twitter Tuesday when he announced that Harrison Ford would be taking Willis’ place in The Expendables 3.

Stallone began by tweeting a joyful message about Ford being cast in the action sequel – The Expendables films have been incredibly successful gathering older action superstars, such as Stallone, Willis, Jet Li and Chuck Norris.

Five minutes later, Stallone tweeted a cryptic message that many perceived as directed to Willis about how laziness leads to failure.

A representative for Stallone confirmed that the dismissive tweet was written with Willis in mind, but did not offer further comment.

Ford is not the only new cast member joining Stallone in The Expendables 3. Milla Jonovich and Jackie Chan are also reportedly appearing in the action flick, which is aiming for an August 2014 release.
