Around 2014, Pierce Brosman’s announcement shares he wants to feature in the fourth film of The Expendables. This got the hints of the fourth film being around the corner.
The film has reportedly completed the making altogether. Even so, the production hasn’t arrived on a release date till now. The film might release by next year or the end of 2020. The dates surely not that far. Rumours read that the schedule might follow the release of The Expendables: A Christmas Story.
Is there a cast list for The Expendables?
There was a lot of disturbance in the sets of The Expandables regarding the cast list of the crew. Sylvester Stallone denied his return due to the disagreements with the script. Arnold Schwarzenegger too backed out along with his buddy Stallone. Following both, the franchise lost two more casts namely Ji Chang-Wook and Tony Jaa.
However, in January 2018, all the issues were resolving, and the franchise has Stallone and others to stay for the film. Adding to that, the cast has Randy Couture playing roles in the film as well. Jason Statham, Antonio Banderas, and Dolph Lundgren will also be part of the fourth film. Patrick Hughes will be returning as director. He has decided to keep up the R rating of the film this time as well.
What is the news regarding plot structure?
According to Cinema Blend, Randy Couture is one of his interview with The Action Elite while promoting Final Kill shares that:
“It is a thing! I got a script last year and really enjoyed reading it. It was very well done, but where we are on the production scale and getting it moving, I’m not sure. There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes with the producer to make a film that big, so I’m hoping this spring we get the green light, but I’m not hearing anything definitive right now.”
The plot, for now, is unknown. It will be out soon with a trailer release in a couple of months per se. That is if the world faces no more pandemic.
It has been a traumatic year full of mishaps and no saviour at all. Expandables being an action combat show might be a great hope and a wonderful start to the next year. The lockdown will be a great time to catch up on some killing action and fierce fights!
