More than 7 years after the 3rd opus, Expendables 4 is long overdue! After many production struggles, it seems that the project is well and truly relaunched, according to Sylvester Stallone himself!
In August 2014, Sylvester Stallone and his band of mercenaries blasted the big screen with the 3rd installment of the Expendables saga.
The film having brought in more than 200 million dollars of receipts, a 4th part was very quickly considered. Unfortunately, the production experienced considerable setbacks, which we told you in This article to celebrate 10 years of the franchise.
7 years later, it seems that the project is off on the right track. Very active on Instagram, Sylvester Stallone posted a photo of a ring with a skull motif with an explicit comment.
“The design of the new ring for the Expendables 4 is just finished. It’s a bit heavy, but it’s definitely going to give me muscle strength.”, confides the actor.
It did not take more to trigger enthusiastic reactions from the fans, who are firmly awaiting the return of Barney Ross and his troop of strong arms. Despite his 75 springs, Sly is very fit, if we are to believe the various videos of him lifting cast iron in the gym posted on his networks.
Stallone has not officially confirmed the return of the franchise but his message seems very clear, The Expendables 4 will see the light of day very soon. Obviously, we don’t yet know if Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, Schwarzenegger, Jet Li and the whole team will be back.
Furthermore, it is highly unlikely that Bruce Willis will return to The Expendables after his ouster from Episode 3. the actor fell out with Stallone after asking too much money (the interpreter of Rambo even called him “lazy and greedy” on twitter).
Willis was indeed demanding four million dollars for four days of filming (instead of three as agreed) … An ouster that allowed Stallone to call on Harrison Ford in the role of elite agent Max Drummer. Note that the trilogy has grossed more than $ 804 million in worldwide box office revenue.
After putting an end to his director’s cut version of Rocky 4, the artist has boxed Samaritan, a feature film in which he plays an aging superhero. While waiting for Expendables 4, you can find him vocally as King Shark in The Suicide Squad.
