Statham: Chan is the real deal

Jason Statham is hoping Jackie Chan will sign up for a third Expendables film.

Rumours have been circulating that Sylvester Stallone is set to give the action movie ensemble another outing, and British star Jason reckons Jackie would make a great addition to the team.

When asked by Collider if he'd spoken to Sly about a third Expendables, Jason said: "No. I saw him on stage at the Golden Globes and he gave me the look. He went 'Whoo!'

"He hasn't said anything but I hear rumours. I should never go with rumours because they're often not correct, but I hear Jackie Chan might be coming to the party and that would make me very happy because I do like Jackie Chan."

He added: "I like Jackie because I've been a friend of Jackie's forever. He's broken every bone in his body for his commitment and dedication to doing his own stunts.

"So he's the real deal. He is the real deal. He's my [favourite]."
