The Expendables 4 will release sometime next year and according to the latest reports, Sylvester Stallone might not be on it. In The Expendables, Terry Crews played the role of Hale Caesar explained to Slash Films why something like this could happen.
According to him, Stallone might devote a lot of his time in the upcoming movie, Creed 2. For the young Creed, Stallone played the role of a boxing trainer.
Due to this part, he received the Golden Globe Awards and it has further given him the shot for an Academy Award. Crews further states that Stallone might be more inclined in concentrating on film projects which can enhance his chances of winning an Oscar.
As a result, even a leading role in The Expendables will not get him closer to any kind of Academy Awards. According to the critics, the last Expendables film was completely filled with a lot of people. The production was mainly focused on most of the main stars of the film and there wasn’t much attention paid to the story and its development.
This resulted in The Expendables 3 being the worst film in this series. Moreover, compared to the first two films, the violence was reduced in The Expendables 3 in order to get a friendlier rating of PG-13.
This decision was later regretted by Stallone as he believed that the blood and gore in Expendables franchise was one of the main reasons behind its many accolades. However, this wasn’t seen as a problem by that of the viewers.
There were uninteresting characters and locations in the third installment and this failed to capture the interest of an audience. These days, viewers are more inclined to stunning visuals and exotic places and this was not delivered in The Expendables 4.
Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson has agreed to be cast as a villain in the upcoming movie. In this movie, his mission is to hunt down all the team members. Sylvester Stallone plays the role of Barney Ross in The Expendables.
He appeared in all three installments and is usually seen leading a group of mercenaries. The latest rumors also indicate that Hulk Hogan will join in as well. For all we know, he might end up replacing Sly as the leader of The Expendables.
Meanwhile, The Expendables 4 has already received a go-signal. Fans are already aware that this will be a really great movie. Jason Statham decided to share his excitement regarding working with Sylvester Stallone once again.
From the latest batch of reports, The Expendables 4 already has a villain. Sylvester Stallone and Arnold will return to this franchise but the question is who else will be making a comeback as well. Other characters who will be in The Expendables 4 are Hulk Hogan and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and most recently, Jason Statham has been added to the list.
Ecumenical News stated that Jason Statham is more than excited to be cast again as Christmas Lee in the upcoming Expendables 4. He is a major fan of the actor and is excited to be working alongside Sylvester Stallone.
According to Jason Statham, he grew up watching Sylvester Stallone movies and he has been a great fan of the actor ever since.
