Earlier in 2017, it was reported that Stallone has walked away from reprising his role as Barney Ross in “Expendables 4” due to creative differences and all that stuff. Well, it looks like Sly is definitely back on. It looks like Sly and Nu Image/Millennium are on good terms now.
The whole point of the Expendables movies are to get a bunch of big name action stars altogether in one movie. The films were meant to bring back old-school action style. Today’s action movies aren’t what they are anymore and Sly wants to bring back action movies how they used to be in the 80’s and early 90’s.
With each Expendables movie, the cast seems to be getting bigger and bigger. I’m sure Sly and Nu Image/Millennium will make the cast for “Expendables 4” even bigger. For EX4, I’m sure the main cast will return: Sly Stallone, Arnold, Dolph, Terry, Randy and Jet Li but I’m sure Sly will add a lot more people to the casting.
The last EX movie had Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammer, Wesley Snipes, Ronda Rousey and others but who are they gonna get for EX4?
Hopefully Sly can actually get Kurt Russell this time ’cause that would be cool. Sly has been trying to get Kurt Russell for every EX movie but Kurt kept turning them down. Now that Kurt is back into acting movies again, maybe it’s a possibility that Sly would get Kurt this time.
Also, I think Sly should add to the cast: Hulk Hogan, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa, Vin Diesel, The Rock, Chris Hemsworth, Al Pacino, Tom Cruise, Nicolas Cage, Liam Neeson, Jackie Chan, etc. Remember, that’s the whole point of these movies… adding a bunch of big name stars as much as possible in one film.
It’ll be interesting to see who Sly is planning to get for EX4. Can’t wait.
The Expendables series gets all kinds of mixed reviews, but I love these movies. I love all three of them but my favorite out of the three is the second one ’cause of JCVD playing the villain.
My question is will Bruce Willis return to this one? I read somewhere that Sly and Bruce had a little feud over these movies which is why Bruce didn’t do the 3rd one. I heard that Sly and Bruce are all cool now so it’s a definite possibility Bruce could be coming back. We’ll have to wait and find out!
