After the officialization of the film Expendables 4, a new actor joined Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone and the rest of the cast.
If the review has emptied several magazines on Expendables 3 in 2013 and that the film’s disappointing box office left the heavy-handed gang for dead, Hollywood’s most muscular franchise will finally come out of its coma. Sylvester Stallone recently announced the start of a fourth installment (the opportunity to make our own dream casting), in which he will obviously take over the role of Barney Ross. The 75-year-old veteran will however remain in the shadow of Jason Statham and his character, Lee Christmas, who will be central to the plot ofExpendables 4.
In addition to Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture, who will also be reprising their roles, the franchise will also bring fresh blood to the cast with the arrival of rapper 50 Cent, Megan Fox in the lead female role and Tony Jaa to smash mouths. . More recently, The Hollywood Reporter announced that a new actor had added to the cast, even thoughit will not serve as cannon fodder.
Expendables : New Blood
Andy Garcia has joined the franchise of Lionsgate and Millennium Media. Nothing has been confirmed, but according to the media, the actor should play a CIA agent who would accompany the Expendables on their new suicide mission. A role tailored for the actor, who has already distinguished himself in investigative and action thrillers without necessarily playing fists, in particular The incorruptible, directed by Brian De Palma, The Godfather: Part 3 of Francis Ford Coppola (who earned him his first Oscar nomination), not to mention Ocean’s Eleven by Steven Soderbergh. The last role of the actor in the cinema is besides that of an agent of the FBI in An angry man from director Guy Ritchie, where he was already giving the reply to Statham.
After the passage of Patrick Hughes behind the camera for the third opus, Expendables 4 will be directed by Scott Waugh (Need for Speed) and should be the first installment on which Stallone will not be credited as a co-writer. Spenser Cohen wrote the screenplay, which was edited by Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly.
If no release date has been communicated at this stage of development, filming should start very quickly, next October.
