The Expendables 4.

What do you think? Will Steven be in part 4? Will Sly try to get him again? Some parts are being filmed in China. Steven likes Asia, so maybe this time he will say yes?
I hope so. I think Stallone will ask him again. With the China-setting he could accept the role..... But.... you know how Steven rolls.

Hmm, a role in Expendables 4.....or another Romanian 5 millions dollar flop with terrible actors? That decision has to be an easy one.....get over the Avi Lerner stuff Steven.....use him to boost you back into the action spotlight!

‘Expendables 4’ Secures China Pre-Sale (EXCLUSIVE).
October 9, 2015 | 08:30AM PT
Patrick Frater
Asia Bureau Chief.

Upcoming Nu Image / Millennium movies “Expendables 4” and “Security” are headed for China. That follows deals with Steven Paul’s SP International Pictures on behalf of SSXH Beijing and Max Screen Film Distribution.
The deals cover equity investments in both films and provide Chinese distribution rights. Both movies may use China as a location for some scenes, though it is not expected that there will be enough Chinese elements for them to be considered as full co-productions.
Action thriller, “Security” is now beginning production in Bulgaria at Nu Image studios. It will star Antonio Banderas (“The Mask of Zorro,” “Desperado”) and Ben Kingsley (“Gandhi,” “Schindler’s List”) under the direction of Alain Desrochers (“Nitro”). The budget is pegged at $15m.
“Expendables 4” will shoot in 2016 and be delivered in 2017. Neither director nor cast have yet been announced, though the picture is expected to have maintain its all-action star formula. It is to be produced on a budget of over $100 million.
The twin China deals involve a transaction in excess of $25 million. They were negotiated between Avi Lerner, Trevor Short and Jeffrey Greenstein for Nu Image and Steven Paul and SPIP on behalf of SSXH and Max Screen Beijing.
Dr. Shi Jianxiang, chairman of Shanghai Kuailu Investment Group, which owns SSXH and Max Screen, and Steven Paul (“Ghost Rider,” “Baby Geniuses,” “Tekken”) will be credited as executive producers on both pictures. Dr. Shi was part of Chinese president Xi Jinping’s recent delegation to the U.S.
The “Expendables” franchise films have proved some of the most successful independent pictures in the Chinese market. “Expendables 3” grossed $39.2 million in North America where it was handled by Lions Gate Films, but $78 million in China.
“What seems to work in their favour in China, is that these movies are good old-fashioned shoot ’em up entertainment,” Paul told Variety.
Paul’s SPI, which has a distribution arrangement with Sony Pictures, has become one of the most active Hollywood independent companies in China. In Cannes SPI announced deals Financing City and C2M from China on “High Speed” and the latest instalment in Paul’s “Tekken” franchise. In July SPI also announced a financial partnership in Thailand with Good Times Films and prominent Thai businessman Pimol Srivkorn (“Tekken: Kazuya’s Revenge.)

‘The Expendables 4’: Sylvester Stallone Wants Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to be the Antagonist in the Movie.


Balls have started rolling on “The Expendables 4” as lead and overall maker of the franchise Sylvester Stallone has already started to get the casting in order. Until now Hulk Hogan and Dwayne Johnson’s names have been popping up as the probable villains in the movie but now it seems Sylvester Stallone too has started to be vocal about how he wants the Rock to be in the movie.

My idea for a EX4 plot.

The Expendables are on a mission in China with Trench and his team. In the process Yin Yang is killed by Big Balls Moof ( :D) (Bolo Yeung) the right hand man of The Rock, and both Barney's and Trench's team wants revenge. Word gets back to Yin Yang's brother/cossin in China, Donnie Yen, who is the leader of the triad.. Deadset on revenge Donnie Yen
seeks out The Expendables and Trench and joins them on a mission for revenge.


I love Jet Li and have the higest respect for him, but it just seems like they are looking for an excuse to kill him off without there being any rumbles in the Asian movie world. So give him one last balls to the walls fight scene, and then add Donnie Yen. It could work fine in my opinion. :)

Me to.. althoght we havn't heard anything in a while.. I think the last thing i heard from Sly was in 2015..
Well, this month Sly had a meeting with that guy who is delivering the motorcycles for The Expendables and he also had lunch with Avi Lerner. So something could be cooking.

Like someone at the Stallone forum said, we know that Sly have talked about brinning Anderson Silva in The Expendables before. So do we have a casting lunch going on here ???? ;) Since Anderson Silva was trained by Seagal for a short while Sly may be smart and try and wheel Seagal in to ;) ..

I think it's very remote that Seagal would ever do an Expendables film. I offer the following reasons:

1. His ego is such that he has become both lazy and difficult to work with.

2. He is hopelessly out of shape and his overall appearance is bizarre..

3. He has too many enemies in Hollywood who would love to blacklist him.

4. His support for thugs like Putin render him less marketable.

5. Numerous sexual allegations against him have tarnished the Buddhist 'holy man'.

If he can get over his issues with Avi Lerner, like Stallone did, then he has no reason to say no anymore. The allegations against him right now could be a bad thing, regardless if those allegations are true or not. Kevin Spacey was also fired from House of Cards, so anything could happen right now. I sure hope he will join this new sequel but i don't count on anything.
