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.

Sylvester STallone drops big hint that “Expendables 4” is his next movie???

Sly’s last couple of movies were “Rambo: Last Blood”, “The Suicide Squad” and “Samaritan”. I haven’t seen “Samaritan” yet but will get the BluRay when it’s out.

Anyhow, Sly’s just dropped the big hint that “Expendables 4” is probably gonna be his next film. They have a script ready to go and it’s gonna start filming soon?

The goal with these Expendables film series is to have a bunch of big name actors all in one movie to go “old school” in action films. That’s the whole point of ’em. So far Sly had almost all the big action stars in the first three films.

Question is, who is going to be casted for “Expendables 4”? Here comes all the guessing games.

I’m sure the main cast will return: Sly Stallone, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li and Terry Crews. Arnold will probably return but will Bruce Willis? We don’t know about Bruce since he refused to star in the 3rd one but we’ll see.

I’m sure Sly will add a bunch more big names to cast… here are some wild guesses…. “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Chris Hemsworth might be possibilities… and I’m hoping and praying Sly gets Kurt Russell and Jackie Chan this time. Sly’s been trying to get Kurt and Jackie since the first one but they kept turning it down… hopefully Sly can get them this time.

One big name action star who hasn’t had a role in a Expendables yet was Steven Seagal. I’m sure Sly wants him pretty badly but as long as Avi Lerner is still producing Expendables 4 in which he is, no chance of that happening of Seagal being in EX4. As some of you may or may not know, Seagal and Lerner don’t get along, they had a big falling out and Seagal refuses to work with Lerner. Sly and Seagal has no beef with each other, they get along great still, it’s Avi Lerner that Seagal hates. Although, Steven Seagal would be an awesome addition…. too bad it’s never gonna happen.

Other names I’d like to see get added: Michael Rooker (Sly did Cliffhanger with him), Carl Weathers would be cool, Daniel Craig, Michael Douglas and John Travolta maybe? It’ll be cool to see Sly and Travolta re-team again.

It’ll be interesting to see who’ll they get for this one.

Happy 75th Birthday to Sylvester Stallone!

Happy birthday, Sylvester Stallone.

The man who is most famous as Rocky, Rambo and Barney Ross turns 75 today. Here he is the man himself in the Insta photo above with an impressive custom made cake made for him.

Sly is a man who I’ve idolized my entire life and still do to this day. Rocky was definitely a hero of mine when I was a child and still love Rocky movies to this day. I’ve collected most of Sly’s films on DVD and BluRay over the years. I never got to meet the man in person yet but I did get an autographed picture that he sent me and got to visit his star at the Hollywood Walk Of Fame once which was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Next on the bucket list is to one day go to Philadelphia to visit the Rocky steps at the art museum and see the Rocky statue with my own eyes. One day that will happen.

So Sly turns 75 today. He is quickly approaching 80 but will Sly retire from action movies any time soon? I remember him saying in interviews plenty of times that he does plan on retiring from acting soon so he can focus on writing and directing more. I’m sure he’s got some more action movies left in him and he’ll probably give us some more. Sly retired Rocky and Sly retired Rambo so he’s done playing those two characters. He hasn’t yet retired Barney Ross, though and he’ll probably give us one more Expendables movie so Expendables 4 is still a big possibility. I’m sure he’s got some acting left in him. Sly is approaching 80’s but he’s still in good shape and capable of acting still so he’ll probably go on a while longer.

I just want Sly to finally finish his “Poe” script and get that movie made… I just want Sly to get that movie off the ground before it’s his time to go if you know what I mean. I want to see Sly’s “Poe” biopic movie so bad but he’s been working on the script for decades ever since he was real young and still working on it now. Everybody’s wants Sly to finish the “Poe” movie so it can be made. We’re all curious about it. We’ll have to keep waiting, I guess.

Sly Stallone hints at Rocky Prequel series for online streaming… Cool Idea, really…

Sly Stallone just hinted on instagram that he maybe working on a “Rocky” prequel series for online streaming. It’s a pretty cool idea really and I really think it could happen. The online streaming giants would be interested in it for sure. It’s not yet known whether it will go to Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime yet but we’ll find out soon enough if it gets the greenlight that is.

I think the prequel “Rocky” series will go to Netflix possibly ’cause after the success of the show “Cobra Kai”, the “Rocky” prequel series could be just as big.

If you know Sly Stallone on how he wrote his scripts and his ideas, he always wrote them down on notebook paper. If you can read his handwriting. Sly hints that the Rocky prequel series would be around in the 60’s, around the time all those historical things were happening that Sly listed above.

Doing a little research, Rocky Balboa was 30 years old in the first Rocky movie and it was 1976 in that film… the same year the movie was filmed in. So since the prequel TV series would be taking place in the 60’s, Rocky would be in his 20’s. So they would need a young actor in his 20’s to play a young Rocky. Good luck to them on trying to find an actor to match Sly’s look and I’m sure they will find someone with no problem.

Sly’s goal with the series that he wants the show to get into more detail of all the characters that includes Adrian, Paulie, Mickey, Apollo Creed, Spider Rico, etc. All of them. So younger actors would have to play those characters too.

Will we get to see how Rocky first met Paulie? Ya know, Paulie who is Rocky’s alcoholic friend? I’m sure we’ll get to see more of Adrian’s life and especially Apollo Creed of how he got into boxing and all would be cool. We’ll get some more insight of how Rocky got into the loan shark business with Gazzo ’cause remember, Rocky was already into that before the first movie. We’ll see how Rocky first met Mickey and how he first got into Mickey’s gym ’cause we’ve never seen any of that yet. We could get more insight on the “Duke” Evers character too. There’s so many details we haven’t seen from the first Rocky. The prequel could be pretty useful, actually. I’m all for it.

The prequel series won’t go to Paramount+ or Disney+ since Rocky is owned by MGM… so Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime is probably your best bet. I prefer it go to Netflix so everyone can see it. The ratings for “Cobra Kai” is huge at Netflix so I think the Rocky prequel show will get a huge audience.

I’m totally all for it.

Could Mr. T Reprise his role as Clubber Lang for “Creed III”???? The Fans want it to happen but ya never know, we can only hope….

It’s now been confirmed that Creed star, Michael B. Jordan is set to star and direct “Creed III”, the third installment to the Rocky spin off series. This was confirmed by the “Creed” actress Tessa Thompson who plays Adonis’s lover in the films. The script for “Creed III” is still being worked on but the story and plot that continues on after “Creed II” is not yet known.

A lot of Rocky & Creed fans dream is that they are hoping and begging Mr. T to reprise his role as Clubber Lang for “Creed IIII”… wanting Clubber’s son to fight against Adonis. Kind of a similar plot to Ivan Drago’s son.

I like this plot idea for Clubber return in this article, though. They shouldn’t go for the son idea ’cause why repeat the same story, ya know? It should be just Clubber.

Read this:

https://screenrant.com/creed-3-clubber-lang-rocky-balboa-not-return/

Not sure if the script is being written for Clubber to come back but man, I feel that no one other than Mr. T should play that character. That role belongs to him only. It would be a joke if they got someone else to play Clubber ’cause the movie would bomb if that happened. If they’re going to bring Clubber back then everybody will expect Mr. T to reprise that role.

Bringing Clubber back is a nice idea and a nice dream but it’s all up to Mr. T. himself if he wants to reprise the role. He’s kind of a retired actor, I think? He hasn’t had a big screen role in many years. His real name is Lawrence Tureaud and as you can see in the pic of him walking the street in sweats, he still has that mean and tough guy look even though he’s 68 now.

If Mr. T came back as Clubber, I’m sure he still got it and would knock it out of the park.

As far as Rocky played by Sylvester Stallone, it’s not yet known whether or not Sly is coming back as his iconic character once again. Ever since Creed II, Sly maintained that will be the last and final time he’ll be playing Rocky in a Creed film but ya never know. Sly could change his mind. I thought Sly retired the character for good but in his online Q&A sessions he kept saying that he’s open to playing Rocky again, always that back and forth thing, he can’t make up his freakin’ mind. So fingers crossed for now.

If Clubber and Rocky are both not coming back at all and if Creed III is gonna go for a totally different plot, I’m sure they’ll find a way to make die-hard Rocky fans happy. They’ll figure something out.

I think in Creed III, it be pretty cool if Adonis could start a friendship with Rocky’s son Robert (played by Milo Ventimiglia), that could be a big possibility too remembering how Creed II ended.

Sly Stallone Celebrates wrap up of latest movie “Samaritan” with Cast and Crew… cool video…

Sylvester Stallone here, finishing up his latest and newest film “Samaritan” wrapping up after a little break due to covid.

Don’t know about you but Sly seems like a cool and stand up dude in real life. He seems fun to talk to and as you probably noticed, the man is so humble while on set. He shows more respect to the film crew ’cause love Hollywood or hate ’em, they are the hardest working people.

Of course, the cast and crew loves working with Sly ’cause he’s such a legend. Who wouldn’t be thrilled to be working with him?

I just heard that Sly got signed for an unspecified role in “Suicide Squad 2” which seems exciting and it’s probably gonna be another cameo appearance. After Sly’s cameo in “Guardians of the Galaxy 2”, I predicted that he’s probably gonna star in more superhero films after that one.

This film “Samaritan” is a superhero film and looking forward to seeing the film’s first trailer real soon.

Sly Stallone “Rocky” watch party from facebook last night…

Last night on FB, I watched the “Rocky” online party with Sylvester Stallone the man himself on FB. Sly Stallone was live online last night giving live commentary as he watches the first Rocky movie with the internet.

Since I’m such a huge Sly Stallone and Rocky fan myself, I just had to get on the MGM studios facebook page so I can watch it myself. Watch parties online are pretty interesting, though… that was my first watch party… watching a movie online while an actor watches it himself.

Throughout the first “Rocky” movie which came out in 1976, Sly just gave all kinds of behind the scenes insight throughout the film. I was impressed with Sly… he did a real good job and his insight about the movie was interesting. I’ve seen the first “Rocky” 100’s of times since it’s one of my favorite movies ever and after all these years I’ve seen the film so many times, there were so many new things that I learned about the film that I didn’t know about yet thanks for Sly’s commentary on it.

Sly admitted on the Watch Party that he doesn’t watch his own movies that much… so him watching his own movie was interesting too. As Sly was watching “Rocky” it was interesting watching his reaction to certain scenes especially the Rocky and Adrian love making scene in Rocky’s apartment. As you watch Sly watching his own movie and talking about it, you can tell he loves the Rocky character so much.

In this lockdown and during these hard times, even Sly himself is bored to death and he’s doing whatever to continue to entertain his fanbase. Sly is an interesting guy and he’s a very intelligent man when it comes to movie making. I’m hoping he does watch parties for all the other Rocky films and the two Creed films as well… just maybe, we’ll wait and see.

I’m glad I watched the “Rocky” watch party and hope Sly has more of them.

What’s up with Sylvester Stallone’s new look? Is it for a movie role? Probably…

https://www.instagram.com/p/B74Tjdzp7x-/

Sly Stallone is looking so different nowadays. Here is the actor debuting a new look like we’ve never seen Sly before and I’m sure it’s surprising and shocking to some people even me a little bit.

Here is Sly with a white beard,  graying mustache and silver or white hair. Some of you may ask, why is Sly looking like this? Well, it’s for a movie role obviously. Right now, he’s filming the movie, “Samaritan” and he was told by the director to look a lot older, probably ’cause it was part of the script. I believe Sly is playing the superhero Samaritan in the movie, it’s about an aging superhero and that’s what it’s looking like to me. Are we gonna see Sly in a superhero costume in this movie? Probably.

Some of you may also ask, is the beard and hair fake? Just movie magic? NOPE!!!! The beard and the hair is his natural look. This is what he’s supposed to look  like as a 70 year old man. He made himself look young by staying clean shaven and dyed his hair black. Now he ditched the hair dye and grew out his white beard for a movie role.

I think Sly looks great this way and he should keep it but he probably won’t. After he’s done with the movie, he’ll probably go back to the clean shaven and black hair look. I wish he would keep the white haired/bearded look ’cause he would look like a badass in this look for “Expendables 4”. Imagine that? He looks like a badass now with this look and still looks like a tough guy!

No matter what you think of Sly, love him or hate him, you gotta give him props for this. Showing off his natural and real look which a lot of aging men refuse to do. This is what he’s supposed to really look like and he has balls for this. You want to look at “courageous” men, you’re looking at one here.

Sly Stallone back in Philadelphia but what for???

https://www.instagram.com/p/B6IrRUmpKP3/

https://www.instagram.com/p/B6J7Dd3JyU8/

Sylvester Stallone is in Philadelphia this week for a “special something” but Sly isn’t saying anything. He’s keeping everything tight-lipped for now of what he’s in Philly for but I bet it has something to do with Rocky. As you can see, Sly visits the Rocky Balboa statue and it seems Sly is in Rocky character… wearing the Rocky hat and black leather jacket… Sly is even talking in the Rocky voice too. He has every right to be Rocky in Philly ’cause he is Rocky if that makes sense.

Anyway, the first video is Sly visiting the Rocky statue and a few minutes later, he gets mobbed by fans in Philly. As you can see in the second video, Sly was willing to hang with them for a little bit and take a group selfie with them.

It may not seem like it but Sly is a very popular actor. He’s probably one of the most popular actors in the world. He’s got fans all over the USA and he’s got fans in other countries too. His fanbase is very massive. Why? It’s because Sly rules! He’s a stand up guy with a good sense of humor, he’s very likeable plus he’s a very talented actor. Some of you may find it silly that I called him “very talented” ’cause the man is. Many of you don’t know it yet. On top of all this, the man is a freakin’ badass and a genius. I’ve always been a fan of Sly ever since I was a child and still loyal to this man to this very day.

I’ve watched his films over the years and he inspired me like everyone else. Those fans are lucky ’cause I wish I was in Philly this week so I can meet the man in person.

It seems that Sly owns the Rocky hat himself that he wore in the Rocky series over the years and it’s very rare to see him wear the Rocky hat in public… only in Philly, I guess. Even though Sylvester is 73 now, he still looks like Rocky with that hat on.

Thought this was very cool.

Hilarious how the Trump Rocky parody photo is triggering lefties and Trump haters, I love it!!!

Yesterday on the 34th anniversary of the release of Rocky IV, President Trump posted this photoshopped photo of himself of Rocky on his twitter and the pic immediately went viral. Of course, Trump supporters love it but the left and Trump haters hate it predictably.

I think Trump knew that pic above would trigger lefties and Trump haters, that’s why he posted it, duh. I love how Trump uses twitter to get the haters all fired up ’cause that’s a big part of why we elected him to begin with.

I thought it was very funny, lefties just don’t have a sense of humor anymore. Always full of hate and negativity.

Happy thanksgiving, y’all.
