This article is clickbait but it has a genius idea in that the perfect villain for Expendables 4 would be Richard Gere. https://movieweb.com/expendables-4-v...-richard-gere/

Re: The Expendables: A Christmas Story -- spinoff starring Statham in the works

I would assume this is the film this article is referring to.

Action stars never say die, they just reload.

Lionsgate and Millennium Media are bringing back their gun-toting, testosterone-throbbing action franchise The Expendables for another go-around.

Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Sylvester Stallone, who have appeared in the previous three installments, are set to reprise their roles for what will be the fourth movie.

Joining the quartet are Curtis “50” Jackson, Megan Fox and Tony Jaa for a feature to be directed by stuntman-turned-helmer Scott Waugh (Need for Speed), with production to begin October.

Spenser Cohen wrote the script with revisions by Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly. Details are being kept in the lockbox but it once again will focus on a group of veteran mercenaries. And while the initial movies that were released in the early 2010s had Stallone as the focal point, sources say in this outing Statham will be the one with the biggest gun. Fox is the female lead.

Statham is also producing along with Kevin King Templeton as well as Millennium’s Les Weldon, Yariv Lerner, Jeffrey Greenstein and Jonathan Yunger.

“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.”

Stallone directed the first movie and wrote the script with David Callaham, now one of the big action scribes in the comic book realm, focusing on characters with names such as Lee Christmas (Statham), Gunner Jensen (Lundgren) and Toll Road (Couture). The initial movie, released in 2010, gathered up the biggest names in action movies from the 1980s — Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger –—and paired them with wrestling stars, international martial arts stars and newer action stars. It was a formula that worked, with the three movies (the others hit theaters in 2012 and 2014) generating more than $829 million worldwide. A sequel had been in the works since the mid-2010s but hard targets proved to be elusive, with changing writers and directors.

I dunno, that's not much of a cast. The only draws for me are Statham and Fox. They could sure use a good villain the way #2 had Van Damme and #3 had Gibson.

So this is not the official 4th film in the series? I’m confused. Seems like everyone is reporting this is the fourth movie.

I’m going by what Stallone said. He said the next one they are shooting in the fall is the spin-off. Articles from today say the film will be Statham focused, so I assume that this what is being shot.

Even if this is Expendables4, this has straight to streaming written all over it. Please Sly, use your remaining career yrs working on something, anything else. Loved the three films, but the idea has run it's course.

Andy Garcia has joined the magnum-muscled cast of the latest installment of The Expendables, the action franchise from Lionsgate and Millennium Media.

I liked the first two Expendables movies pretty well. I wasn’t really a fan of the third one though. I think overall I enjoyed the second one best, but the films were never as good as I wanted them to be really. That being said I probably will still watch whatever this ends up being.

It’s finally happening. Lionsgate is even calling it Expendables 4.

Andy Garcia joined the cast in September.

Scott Waugh is the director. They are filming in the UK.

So he definitely isn't a lead in the movie, but since Statham is taking over the franchise I'm optimistic they don't crap out a movie like the Escape Plan sequels.

Nice, I think I'll watch Expendables 2 again. Haven't seen it in a while and really enjoyed it due to Van Damme's role.

And Sylvester Stallone? Weird credit there. I have a feeling this will be his final appearance/torch hand-off to Statham. I hope they don't introduce more UFC fighters that no one knows or cares about. That Rhonda Rousey appearance in the previous film has not aged well.

He has already said he is not in the movie much and that this is Statham’s film. He was originally not even calling it The Expendables 4, but a spin-off. The studio seems to have overruled that.

I'm down with more 80's style action flicks, but admit I'm less interested as the 80s action stars start to move on. And like Checkmate said, the world could use more Terry Crews.

I'm up for a 4th, but after I would have wanted Stallone in the lead together with Statham, like in the other movies

CRAP!!!! Shame on Stallone for still going forward with this sequel without him. I thought Terry was an integral part of the team. Why didn't they just kill Hale Caesar off in the third one if they were going to do him this dirty?
