Are you ready to return to the action-filled world of The Expendables? Well, gear up as Lionsgate is coming back with a new entry.
The fourth film in The Expendables franchise will see Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, and Sylvester Stallone reprising their roles from the first three entries.
Joining the franchise for the first time are Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Megan Fox, and Tony Jaa. Jackson has grown in the acting world with his hit series Power, Fox is making a comeback in a big way, and Jaa fits alongside these action movie veterans.
Stuntman-turned-director Scott Waugh will helm the project, with a script from Spenser Cohen and revisions handled by Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly. The Expendables 4 goes into production this October.
“It’s so much fun to bring these stars together for a no-holds-barred action film,” said Jason Constantine, president of acquisitions and co-productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, in a statement. “The new film will raise the stakes and be the biggest, most badass adventure yet.”
