It’s been more than two years since the third installment of “The Expendables” franchise was released, but the good news is that it is not the last. It has been speculated that the new entry of Sylvester Stallone’s action film series will hit theaters in not so distant future. Let’s see what else has been revealed about the upcoming movie.
Even though there are still no official reports about the movie’s development, we have found out that The Hollywood Reporter states that Splendid Film now owns the title rights in German-speaking part of Europe. Furthermore, there is a great likelihood that some of the actors who appeared in the previous franchise entries will reprise their roles. Much to fans’ delight, the three most famous stars are among them – Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, and Jason Statham.
The rest of the cast members who will take part in “The Expendables 4” as well include Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Jet Li and Dolph Lundgren. It should also be noted that Schwarzenegger, Stallone, and Statham were not the only “notable” actors in the first three installments, but there were also Antonio Banderas, Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis and Harrison Ford. However, we don’t know if any of them will possibly return for the new sequel.
The Expendables franchise has received mixed critical reception, but financially speaking, the third installment, which stars Mel Gibson as the main villain, was the least successful. It earned $214.6 million worldwide, while the first and the second entry earned $274.4 million and $314.9 million, respectively.
There is one more interesting possibility regarding “The Expendables 4” cast: James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has mentioned that he would like to take part in the forthcoming film. Again, this is yet to be confirmed, but it sounds interesting, don’t you think?
The Expendables 4 Release Date
The exact release date has not been announced either, but the movie should see the light of day sometime in 2018.
