Get ready for another gun show, as The Expendables are suiting up for more action!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate and Millennium have greenlit a fourth installment of the action franchise.
Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Sylvester Stallone, will all reprise their roles from the first three films.
Expendables 4 promises to be “most badass adventure yet”
Given that the last film in the franchise came out in 2014, it’s taken a while for the fourth film to finally get the go-ahead.
Alongside the returning franchise regulars, the cast will include Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Megan Fox, and Tony Jaa.
Speaking on the new film, Jason Constantine, President of acquisitions and co-productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group said:
It’s so much fun to bring these stars together for a no-holds-barred action film. The new film will raise the stakes and be the biggest, most badass adventure yet.
Similarly, Millennium president Jeffrey Greenstein commented:
Popcorn entertainment is guaranteed.
Production on the film is expected to commence this autumn.
Scott Waugh is in the director’s chair, with a screenplay penned by Spenser Cohen, Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly.
Popcorn entertainment is usually a good time at the movies, and we’ll be ready with ours when this film is relapsed.
