Back in June, Moviehole published a rumor that Bruce Willis had joined the already packed action star-heavy cast of Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables.

 At the time it was unknown if Willis would find the time to shoot the scene, as he was knee deep in the Kevin Smith buddy cop comedy A Couple of Dicks. Sly’s publicist responded to the speculation, noting that some people “have it right” but that she “can’t release the name until the deal is absolutely finalized. I’m not trying to tease you, but you won’t be disappointed..at least most of you won’t.” And now we finally have a confirmation, from the man himself.

 Willis tells MTV that he hasn’t filmed the scene yet, and that he’s still “waiting for a call from Sly about when we’re going to try and make that happen.” And while he has yet to read any script pages, Willis was able to confirm that the cameo appearance involves sharing the screen with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stallone.

 Bruce will play Mr Church, the man who hires the Expendables, a highly-trained team of deadly combat mercenaries, to go on a mission to South America to overthrow and execute a villainous dictator. Interestingly enough, the role of Church was originally offered to Schwarzenegger, who declined in favor of a smaller cameo part due to political concerns. Schwarzenegger will now play a retired Lieutenant General of the Expendables.
