A fourth The Expendables film is officially in the works
By Ray Ampoloquio August 31, 2021
For years, we've heard very little about the next film in the series, following 2014's The Expendables 3.
Now, Lionsgate has finally broken its silence and announced that The Expendables 4 is coming.
Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, and Sylvester Stallone, will all return to reprise their roles in The Expendables 4.
On top of these four returning cast members, The Expendables 4 will welcome new faces such as Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Megan Fox, and Tony Jaa in new roles.
The addition of 50 Cent and Megan Fox is odd, to say the least.
However, we're huge fans of the decision to bring in Tony Jaa, who recently starred in Monster Hunter.
The Scott Waugh-led installment will reportedly cast Jason Statham in a more prominent role than previous flims.
Megan Fox is also reported to take a lead female role in the film.
We're definitely curious to see how The Expendables 4 will handle the departure of previous cast members.
Among those is Ronda Rousey, who was cast as the series' first female lead in The Expendables 3.
The Expendables 4 will reportedly start filming in the fall.
This suggests that Lionsgate intends to film the next installment and the Statham-led spin-off back-to-back.
We should hear more about Christmas Story and The Expendables 4 later this year.
