Expendables 4 To Film In Asia?


Despite The Expendables 3 being a box office bomb, it seems that Sylvester Stallone is still confident that an Expendables 4 will take place.  I guess Stallone is in a better position to know about this than any of the rest of us.  So if it is the case, it could film in Asia.

While in Macao for the premiere of Expendables 3, Stallone told fans:

“As we go on, we will continue to add more stars, more personalities, more athletes, more individuals around the world, not just Americans. They’ll be from all parts of the world. Hopefully, we’ll be able to film in Asia very soon.”

Stallone, who directed and wrote the first Expendables film, also said he considered getting Hong Kong director John Woo to helm the third movie. He is keen to get Jackie Chan, Asia’s most wanted action star, involved.

“We’ve always wanted to use Jackie Chan. The only reason we didn’t…because there really wasn’t a part big enough for him, because we had so many actors. But in the next one, we are going to reduce the actors, and let’s just say, expand the screen time of each star,”

It’s worth noting though that while promotion in France that Stallone also hyped up French action star Christopher Lambert, so he could be playing to the crowd with this stuff.  It is interesting however for him to say potential filming could begin “very soon”.  But either way I wouldn’t get my hopes up.  For any of this.  Sylvester Stallone’s word right now is worth very little.

    That raid statement got me so hyped for part 3 then I saw it and was like I would rather watch robin b hood in a big Jackie fan then watch that piece of poorly shot badly edited CGI mess

    Too bad they didnt let Gibson go all out in Ex3…
    As for EX4 well asia is for sure sounds great, I just hope that if the asia setting will happen, all i want (I dont think this will happen though) is John Woo or Benny Chan as director, Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, and Maggie Q as new actors. Donnie and Q could be awesome bad guys.

    Donnie Yen as main villian and Maggie Q as his personal assassin would be just great. But this is just a wish, in reality they maybe add Jackie.

    Sly is just playing to the crowd, If he was here in Holland, he’d say the movie would film in Amsterdam and would star Jeroen Krabbe and the director would be Paul Verhoeven.
    But his statements that it’ll get a smaller cast and will have the actors star more makes me glad though. In the past Sly has provento be able to learn from his mistakes and fix his franchises, so why knows right

    It needs to be rated r and no young kids. Only the legends of the 80s and 90s. Get better writers for the franchise like Shane Black, who understands 80s and 90s action movies! Get good action stars of the 80s and 90s. Wesley and Antonio were still good. So keep them. Bring back Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke to the franchise again. Get better directors like John woo, richard Donner, John McTiernan, William fried kin, Michael Mann, etc who know what the franchise needs.

    Quentin Tarantino is good too but he’s got his own film projects. He’s a great writer and director. But John woo, Richard Donner, John McTiernan, William Friedkin, Michael Mann would be personal choices. Friedkin especially because of to live and die in LA. He understood the edge of darkness in all the characters especially the antihero. I guess you could say it was a passing the torch kind of thing when William Petersen gets killed trying to find who killed his partner, his new partner played by John Pankow takes down the son of a bitch and in the end becomes the same kind of cop like William Petersen was in the beginning. The ending made a lot of sense. John woo’s the killer was like that too. That’s how Expendables should have been, like that, Heat, usual suspects, face/off, the killer, lethal weapon, etc.

      The Expendables was actually borne out of Inglorious Bastards, which was borne out of an idea for an ensemble that Schwarzenegger had. Ripped off, if you will.
