The Expendables brought together some of the biggest stars in the action movie genre. By Arnie into Sly Stallone, the big names all came together for all these pictures. However, a fourth film has been in the pipeline, and fans are starting to wonder whether it is going to ever arrive.
Obviously, with all the coronavirus causing the shutdown of different movie collections, and the closure of cinemas, there will not be a picture of The Expendables any time soon.
However, it seems as though things are making some motions, and we might be lucky enough to see something arrive within the next few years.
Usually when is film is getting made, things will sit in development for some time as the filmmakers try to get the script entirely right, the very best directors and throw on board and, what’s more, the backing of a studio or even a few rich producers.
With The Expendables 4, these things we’re likely not too difficult to get right, however there were some throw issues when both Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger left the franchise and rejoined a couple of times.
An insider has, nevertheless, revealed items are perhaps in their way a bit more than people may have thought.
Talking to Your Action Elite, UFC star Randy Couture, that plays with the demolition expert in the movie collection, stated: “It [The Expendables 4] is something! I got a script this past year and enjoyed reading it.
“It was well done, but in which we are on the manufacturing scale and getting it going, I am not sure.
“There are a great deal of things going on behind the scenes with the producer to make a film that large, so I’m hoping this spring we get the green light, but I’m not hearing anything definitive right now.”
Obviously, filming this spring is unlikely given very few films are up and functioning at the moment.
But it does show there is a clear intention to acquire the movie off the ground.
What is The Expendables?
The official synopsis for the very first movie reads: “Sylvester Stallone stars as Barney Ross, chief of The Expendables, a tight-knit group of skilled combat vets turned mercenaries.
