Expendables is a very popular franchise, but the last film didn’t do very well. Ever since then fans have been waiting to hear some good news regarding the next instalment. Expendables 4 has been confirmed, but the production is yet to start.
Ecumenical News has reported that according to Randy Couture, the martial arts artist, the film will start production in fall this year and will be filming in different locations in China.
While this rumor has gotten fans excited since it gives them some hope of seeing martial arts exponent Jackie Chan in Expendables 4. There were reports suggesting that Jackie Chan was approached by Sylvester Stallone to be the part of the upcoming film, but he had declined citing a busy schedule.
Expendables 4 brings together some of the best known actors from the industry and it is the one film where the fans of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone can see the two actors together. However, fans will be a little disappointed to find out that Sylvester Stallone is likely to be away from Expendables 4.
Stallone won the Golden Globe Award for his role in Creed and there is a rumor that given the success of the movie, it will have a sequel. This means that Sylvester Stallone might get busy with his role in Creed and will not be able to make time for Expendables 4 when it finally goes on the floor.
Cross Map reported that Terry Crews has said that there is a chance that Sylvester Stallone will not be a part of Expendables 4 since he is going to be very busy with Creed 2. The rumor of Stallone not coming back to reprise the role of Barney Ross has been confirmed with an insider and this has made fans worried that Sly might actually not be a part of the film.
Terry Crew is believed to be a part of Expendables 4 along with actors Jason Statham, Couture, Dolph Lundgren and more. However, he has gone on record to state that he is going to be a part of the upcoming film only if Sylvester Stallone is going to be a part of it.
Hulk Hogan and Dwayne Johnson hare also going to be a part of Expendables 4. Dwayne Johnson had always been keen on being a part of the franchise, but had always made it very clear that he doesn’t want to be the good guy. He instead wants to be one of the villains and he is likely to be featured as one in the upcoming film.
Hulk Hogan had been good friends with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and they requested him to be a part of Expendables 4. Given the fact that they have had a hand in giving a boost to his career, Hulk Hogan couldn’t refuse the offer.
He had joked about the fact that he is no longer in a position to jump and perform the action sequences, but then there are stunt personnel who can always do that for him.
While these assumptions are all made on the basis of the rumors that are circulating on the internet, there are no confirmation that this is how are going to pan out when the film is going to go onto the floors.
While the film is slated to start production in September there are no confirmation on who will be the producer and director of Expendables 4. Given that Avi Lerner had produced the previous three films it is being assumed that he will be back to produce the fourth instalment as well.
