Lionsgate has officially announced “The Expendable 4” is in the works, reuniting Sylvester Stallone, Couture, Jason Statham, and Dolph Lundgren for an all-new feature film. In addition, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Megan Fox, and Tony Jaa will join the franchise in new roles for the sequel.
“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Millennium Media for the next installment of The Expendables franchise,” said Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group. “It’s so much fun to bring these stars together for a no-holds-barred action film. The new film will raise the stakes and be the biggest, most badass adventure yet.”
In an Instagram post earlier this month, Stallone referred to the project as a “spinoff” with the temporary working title of ‘Christmas Story.’ Lionsgate hasn’t yet announced a release date for ‘The Expendables 4’ (aka Christmas Story) but filming is set to begin this fall.
