They're baaaack!

The rough and tumble men of the hit Expendables films are hitting the big screen again, but this time with a few cast changes.

While we won't be seeing Bruce Willis joining the star-studded flick, viewers will be pleased to know that there are a slew of new faces joining the ensemble for the third flick.

Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson are confirmed to join the action-thriller, as well as MMA star Ronda Rousey, boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Glenn Powell.

The film's studio confirmed that Kellan Lutz, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas be included in the cast also.

Wow, if that's not a lineup then we don't know what is!

Expendable veterans Jason Statham, Jet Li and Sylvester Stallone are all still signed onto the next installment of the sure-to-be blockbuster.

Earlier this month, Stallone took to Twitter to reveal that Ford was starring in the film. He also posted a cryptic tweet that seemed to be a dig at Willis (which neither camp would confirm or deny, but we'll let you judge for yourselves).

"WILLIS OUT… HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!"

He then followed up his excitement about the news by saying, "GREEDY AND LAZY …… A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE."

It looks like Stallone couldn't hide back his excitement (or true feelings) about the casting news.

Production is slated to begin on location in Bulgaria shortly and the film will hit theaters on Aug. 14, 2014.

The first two films have grossed nearly $600 million in combined global box office figures.

This will surely be a smash success next year!
