Stallone's rep confirmed to  The Huffington Post  that the tweet was in fact made in reference to Willis, but refused to elaborate.

Willis was part of the first two hugely successful installment of the "Expendables" franchise, which grossed over half a billion dollars combined worldwide.

Production for "The Expendables 3" is set to begin later this month with Jackie Chan,Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich joining the star-studded cast.

"New TEAM a Blessing! Best Group of the year," Stallone  tweeted  in July. "EXPENDABLES Looking Fresh and Strong."

The film is set to open in theaters Nov. 15, 2014.
