CINEMA – Were you looking forward to it? “The Expendables 4” will indeed see the light of day. Production company Lionsgate made the news official in a statement reported by The Hollywood Reporter on Monday, August 30. Filming for the feature film is due to begin in October. However, no information about the synopsis was revealed.

Conversely, it is known that Sylvester Stallone and his tough team of Jason Statham, Randy Couture and Dolph Lundgren will return to service. A cast, as impressive as ever, complemented by the arrival of Megan Fox, 50 Cent and Tony Jaa (“Monster Hunter”).

“It’s so much fun bringing these stars together for a limitless action flick,” said Jason Constantine, president of acquisitions and co-productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, in the statement. “The new film will have higher stakes and will be the biggest and most ‘badass’ adventure yet”

To the realization? Scott Waugh (“Need For Speed”), which will be based on a script thought out by Spenser Cohen, Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly. In addition to playing one of the leading roles like in previous films, Jason Statham will also be a co-producer.

The very first “The Expendables” in 2010 brought together the biggest stars of action films of the 80s (Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis) by associating them with stars of wrestling and martial arts (Jet Li, Chuck Norris or Jean-Claude Van Damme). The recipe had worked extremely well at the box office for all three films, raising more than $ 829 million globally.
