According to aceshowbiz.com, Lionsgate Media and Millennium Media announced the production of a new ‘Expendables 2’ movie with a number familiar faces as well as new additions.
The franchise’s veterans Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham will be back in the fourth installment.
The stars who appeared in the three previous installments are back to play their roles as Barney Ross and Lee Christmas, Gunner Jensen, and Toll Road.
As new characters, Curtis Jackson (50 Cent), Megan Fox, and Tony Jaa will be joining the movie.
The plot details of the movie have yet to be revealed. However, according to The Hollywood Reporter it will again focus on a group veteran mercenaries.
Fox will play the lead role, and Stallone will be replaced by Statham.
It’s great to have these stars together for an action film that is completely non-stop. Jason Constantine, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group president of acquisitions, stated that the new film would raise the stakes. “It will be the biggest and most dangerous adventure yet.”
Millennium president Jeffrey Greenstein promised that popcorn entertainment was guaranteed, and he gushed that the new additions were meant to keep it “fresh and fun.” Stuntman-turned-director Scott Waugh is on board to helm the project, while the script is written by Spenser Cohen, with revisions by Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly.
Statham will be producing with Kevin King Templeton, Yariv Lerner and Jeffrey Greenstein, as well as Millennium’s Les Weldon and Jonathan Yunger.
Production will begin in the fall, but there is no release date yet.
50 Cent shared the celebration on his Instagram page.
He posted the caption “Expendables BOOM Time to Work” along with a screenshot from an article about it.
