While some fans of the “Expendables” franchise might have been bummed at the news that Bruce Willis left the threequel, they can take solace knowing that “The Expendables” three will not be lacking in star power.

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” the film will feature the additions of Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson and Wesley Snipes.

The first teaser for the film is chockfull of action stars, as they walk in a line whistling a tune.

The hardcore lineup features the returns of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundren and – of course – Sylvester Stallone.

Willis departed the project in a blaze of glory, leading Stallone to lash out, calling him “greedy and lazy” at the time.

Everything seems to have worked out for the best, though, as the film is not lacking for action stars.

“The Expendables 3” will be released on August 15, 2014. With this lineup, do you think the third time’s the charm?
