Expendables 4 is finally happening and Casting now underway…

So Lionsgate studios finally greenlights “Expendables 4” and looks like they are in a rush to get the casting done for the 4th installment of action movie franchise.

Of course, the main cast is officially returning: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Randy Couture and Dolph Lundgren.

Doing a little research on whether or not Terry Crews will be back for this one, it’s looking like he won’t ’cause Avi Lerner of Lionsgate won’t allow Terry to be back unless he drops his lawsuit accusing this talent agent of sexual abuse. Things can always change, though so we’ll see if Terry decides to drop his sexual abuse lawsuit against this other person then he might be back, we’ll have to wait.

It is not yet known on whether or not Jet Li, Arnold or Bruce Willis gonna be back… we’ll have to wait on those too.

EX 4 announced a few new names to the Expendables cast: Megan Fox, 50 Cent and Tony Jaa.

It is not yet known what the plot for EX 4 is gonna be but Sly said on instagram it’s gonna be a spinoff but that can always change.

I’m sure the next Expendables is gonna be a crowded movie of big name action stars so I’m sure they’ll keep adding more and more big name stars in the future.

I’m sure the next Expendables will be Rated R this time and they will bring back the gritty and dark violence. The PG-13 rating was a failed experiment and they’ll never do that again.

They’ll keep adding more and more big names but again, my wish list: Kurt Russell, Jackie Chan, Tom Cruise, Liam Neeson, Nicolas Cage, Jason Momoa, Danny Trejo, Chris Hemsworth, Vin Diesel, Carl Weathers, Dave Bautista…

I doubt most of these guys would get in but Carl Weathers and Dave Bautista would be the most likely. Everybody would expect the Rock Dwayne Johnson to get added but he’s a busy guy with so many other projects but we’ll see about Dwayne… never say never.

I’m surprised Danny Trejo didn’t get in on these movies yet and I think a Mickey Rourke return would be cool.

As for females, you know they’re gonna add a few more ladies other than Megan Fox… Michelle Rodriguez would be a cool addition. Maybe Uma Thurman, Michelle Yeoh and Gina Carano.

I’m probably gonna be wrong on most of these picks and will only get a few of them right but ya never know. We’ll see.

EDIT TO ADD: Ooops, one correction that Danny Trejo was in the first Expendables movie, my bad on that one.

First the Ghostbusters is going all female… now the Expendables going all female too???

At Cannes film festival, Avi Lerner the producer of “The Expendables” franchise revealed that he is planning an all-female Expendables that will be titled, “The Expendabelles”. He also said they are writing the final lines of the script and they should start shooting in the beginning of next year.

Stallone said he wants Sigourney Weaver to star as his on-screen wife and he wants her to lead, “The Expendabelles” group.

What’s with the new all-female trend in Hollywood???

“The Expendabelles” sounds like a title of a low budget soft-core porn film, HA!!!!

An action movie with hot babes??? I’m all for that!

As for my dream casting of this movie how about: Rhonda Rousey, Gina Carano, Michelle Rodriguez, Scarlett Johansson, Milla Jovovich, Zoe Saldana, Rooney Mara, and Uma Thurman.

Why did I pick Uma Thurman??? Well she did some great action with the two “Kill Bill” movies so she might be a good addition to this.

It’s gonna be kind of tough for Sly and Avi to find tough looking chicks for an action flick. Those actresses I listed above would probably be the best choices.

If this movie doesn’t show boobs or legs, then this film would be worthless. Sex and action should go together for this one if they want it to work. Maybe that’s the whole idea???

Report: Nicolas Cage confirmed for “Expendables 3”??? Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood in negotiations???

Sly Stallone and the crew for “The Expendables” team have been trying to get Nicolas Cage to join the cast ever since the first movie but Cage declined every time. Look like Lionsgate finally got him! Avi Lerner said that Cage is set to star, not saying what role he will be playing yet. Don’t know whether he’s playing the good guy or the villain, for “Expendables 3”.

No matter what you think of Nicolas Cage, the guy is an action star. So he fits in “The Expendables” perfectly. I think Cage would make a pretty good villain for the third one. Cage has been in more than 20 action films over the years and pretty big hits too. Movies like, “The Rock”, “Con/Air”, “Face/Off”, “Gone In 60 Seconds”, “Snake Eyes”, “8mm”, etc. The list goes on.

Lerner also says that Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford are also in talks.

More on the story, here.

I hope they’ll get Kurt Russell for the third one too. They’ve been trying to get Russell for the last two films, but he kept declining as well. It would be nice to see Tango and Cash re-team again.

Thought: Steven Seagal for “The Expendables” sequel???

When the “Expendables” film franchise is being discussed in movie forums and blogs, Steven Seagal’s name is always brought up. A lot of fans of these movies, want Seagal to join the cast.

I might of posted about this before a long time ago but I think I’ll post it again. I agree it would be cool as hell if Seagal would join the Expendables cast, but it’s NEVER going to happen anytime soon. Why?

Because Avi Lerner and Seagal don’t get along. They hate each other, I think. They had a fallen out over some movie deal a few years back. Do your research and google it yourself. Seagal vowed to never work with Lerner again. “The Expendables” franchise is being produced by Millennium studios which is owned/founded by, Lerner. If the “Expendables” was being made through a different movie company, then yes, I’m sure Seagal would be on board then, but as long as Avi Lerner is working with them, no chance.

Sly even tried to get Seagal for the first movie but he failed. Seagal must patch things up and bury the hatchet with Lerner, if they ever want to work together again, but I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Their feud is pretty heated and not very nice.

It is interesting how Seagal’s name keeps coming up when it comes to, “The Expendables”. I’m sure he respects Sly as an actor, Seagal has no bad blood against Sly at all, it’s Avi Lerner he doesn’t like. I’m sure Seagal wants to be a part of these movies, but he can’t.

I like Steven Seagal movies, the earlier ones. He was a good action hero back in the day.
