Sly, Statham and Jet Li in Stallone's next?

Action heroes tag-team up for The Expendables

Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham are joining forces to wreak carnage in war actioner The Expendables.

Brilliantly, Jet Li is also in negotiations to star in the film written by Stallone, who will likely direct too.

Sly script follows a crack unit of mercenaries as they trek out on a mission to overthrow a South American dictator.

Which means there will almost certainly be a repeat of the gut-spilling, throat-ripping, limb-severing violence of Rambo. Amen to that.
