Sylvester Stallone rejoiced on Twitter at the news that Harrison Ford would be joining "The Expendables 3" cast and threw shade at his former co-star Bruce Willis.

Willis appeared in the first two "Expendables" films as Church, opposite Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Terry Crews and other burly action stars.

He did not leave the franchise under amicable terms, according to the Huffington Post.

Stallone took it a step further in a subsequent tweet, slamming the "Die Hard" star without naming him directly.

Stallone's representatives confirmed to HuffPost Entertainment that the tweet was made in reference to Willis, but did not comment further.

Neither Willis, nor his reps, have commented on the harsh remarks.

Production on "The Expendables 3" is set to begin this month. Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Milla Jovovich are expected to join the cast, possibly alongside Mel Gibson. "Expendables 3" should hit theaters next year.

Stallone has made revelations on Twitter in the past about the "Expendables" franchise; he was forthcoming about wanting Mel Gibson to join the team.

"Mel is a MAGNIFICENT director! Pure passion on every level. We'd be blessed to have him. A REAL long shot, but LIFE is a long shot — right?" he wrote.

In July, he seemed to confirm Gibson would be joining "Expendables," simply tweeting, "Mad Max vs Barney Ross." Mad Max is among Gibson's most iconic roles, and Barney Ross is the name of Stallone's character.

Outside of "The Expendables 3," Stallone will reprise his role as one of sports' greatest underdogs in a new Rocky movie spinoff, "Creed" which focuses on the grandson of Apollo Creed.
