After the third installment in 2014, the question was up in the air about what to do with “The Expendables” franchise, which, laughable as it may be, has earned over $800 million worldwide across three movies. One idea that was tossed around and didn’t really go anywhere was launching an event series on Fox, in which formerly famous TV stars would come together for a probably hokey adventure. Instead, it looks like we’re going to get yet another movie.
THR reveals that “The Expendables 4” is gearing up, with the distribution rights starting to be sold, and a planned 2018 release on the table. Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Arnold Schwarzenegger are expected to return and that’s about all the details at the moment. No word on a director or which aging stars they’ll insure and get to join the movie. But presumably like the other entries, this will be shot in Bulgaria like the last two, to take advantage of some sweet tax breaks.
If there’s any star you want to see crack their bones and join the crew, let us know below.
