Because of the poor performance at the box office of The Expendables 3, the future of the series was left in doubt, and promotion was stalled over and over again. In the year 2016, Sylvester Stallone announced the fourth installment of the series and set a tentative date of release for 2018. By March 2017, Stallone left the project because of some creative differences in the script. In January 2018, Stallone returned to the project after vocal support from other cast members. By August 2020, things started to look better, with official filming commencing in September. On 3rd December 2021, Tony Jaa confirmed that the filming had been wrapped.
The Expendables began in 2010 by introducing Barney Ross, Lee Christmas, gunner Jensen and Toll Road, among others, as a team of elite mercenaries who sign all kinds of contracts from government agencies around the world, including assassinations, rescue ops, and more. There is no official information or synopsis released as of now. However, the premise from Wikipedia reads,
The film depicts a nuclear conflict between Russia and the United States that The Expendables are drawn into.
What we know so far is that this will be the final installment and that could mean that we'll be getting callbacks to some popular scenes from the past. Get prepared for an emotional goodbye!
Yes, there is. Check it out below.
