The Expendables franchise is far from finished after three installments. A fourth film is on the way and new details are very exciting about this new edition of the saga.

The Expendables 4 is coming and a few newcomers will join the already loaded cast of mega stars. Sylvester Stallone confirmed that the next chapter in the series will start filming in October and Lionsgate Films has now officially announced the upcoming movie.

Stallone, Couture, Jason Statham, and Dolph Lundgren are all returning to reprise their previous roles. New additions to the cast include 50 Cent, Megan Fox, and Tony Jaa.

Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, had a lot to say about how excited the studio is for this new release.

“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Millennium Media for the next installment of The Expendables franchise. 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.”

This new installment in the Expendables saga is produced by Jason Statham, Kevin King Templeton, and Les Weldon. Scott Waugh is directing using a screenplay by Spenser Cohen with revisions by Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly. We will have to see what kind of action awaits our band of mismatched heroes next time around, but it’s likely to be an adrenaline pumping explosion of a good time.
