We all love our action movie heroes. One guy facing down all the bad guys against all odds is the plot to most of those stories. These action movies have catapulted the careers of actors like Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, and many others.
Back in 2010 they thought “What if we put all the popular action movie heroes in the same movie?” and thus was born The Expendables. The plot followed the same formula as every other action movie. The difference was in the cast. Having all those big name action heroes interacting with each other in the same movie was phenomenal. Nostalgia for the characters they had played in previous movies was huge… and they threw in enough references to make us fans giddy.
Eight years and three movies later, they are filming Expendables 4. Never mind that Stallone said number 3 was the last one. I for one am glad he changed his mind. I am also happy they decided to return to an R rating instead of the PG-13 of Expendables 3.
Not much is known about Expendables 4 except it is due to start filming in 2019 with a 2020 release. A lot of the old characters are set to return. There are rumors of some new blood being brought in as well (Hulk Hogan, Dwayne Johnson, Dave Bautista). As long as they pack it full of great action sequences, it will be a box office hit.
