It’s time for the weekly Expendables 4 rumors round-up.
Expendables 4 Confirmation
Sylvester Stallone, the main go-to person when it comes to Expendables news, has been pretty quiet lately. Luckily there are other ways to get updates regarding Expendables 4.
The movie has been rumored and hinted on for a while now, but a ‘confirmation’ on the production of Expendables 4 has been reported recently. Variety revealed that a distribution deal has already been hammered between NU Image / Milennium and SP International Pictures who was representing SSXH Beijing and Max Screen Film Distribution.
Part of the deal discussed are Chinese distribution rights, equity investments in Expendables 4, also included in the deal is the option to have parts of the movies shot in China.
When it comes to the cast, names linked to the upcoming Expendables 4 have been popping up left and right.
It is not a surprise that the main cast of the Expendables, namely, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Terry Crews, are very much interested in reprising their role for the upcoming movie.
New cast that are being linked to the upcoming movie are:
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. It was a Reddit AMA that started it all. A fan asked if he would be interested in being part of the upcoming Expendables, and The Rock answered in the affirmative… if he could pay the main big bad for the movie.
Jackie Chan. The Hong Kong action star has already answered all rumors regarding his part in the upcoming Expendables 4, Sylvester Stallone supposedly has been trying to get him to join the movie since Expendables 2, but he declined not wanting to join the movie if he would only be in a cameo role.
Salman Khan. Sylvester Stallone’s invitation to have Salman Khan join Expendables 4 was seen for all Twitterverse to witness, so it is not a surprise that his name kept on coming up when Expendables 4 is mentioned.
There is still no confirmed release date for the Expendables 4, though there are rumors that filming would start in 2016, with a 2017 release date target.
Would like to thank the super talented Indian superstar SALMAN KHAN the Compliment he Tweeted! We should do an ACTION FILM together!
