LA Times has reported that Shi Jianxiang, a Chinese billionaire is keen on investing in Expendables 4. Head of the Shanghai Kuailu Investment Group, Shia Jianxiang has expressed his interest in the movie because he has realised that there is a very good market for the film in China. The earlier part of Expendables didn’t do very well in the US, but it had a massive opening in China and was a huge success there.
Shi Jianxiang had also invested in Ip Man 3 and he has noticed that there is an upward trend in the interest for the film since the last Expendables that was released in 2014. With big names like Dwayne Johnson, Hulk Hogan interested in the franchise, the interest for the film is going up.
Jackie Chan was reported approached by Sylvester Stallone to become a part of Expendables 4. If he agrees to be a part of the film then the film is going to be a guaranteed success in China and Jianxiang’s plan will be pay off.
Li Binbing has reported that the film will be starting with the production very soon. There have been some changes in the script that had caused the delay, but the producers are looking for a 2017 release and they are going to go all out to come back on track.
