As it turns out, the Expendables franchise isn’t expendable at all.
The running joke of the durable action franchise happens to be that the classic silver-screen legends are going to live through a guns-blazing thriller, but that some of them might not make it to the end credits.
Some of the gang is going to get back together for the just-confirmed fourth Expendables movie, which doesn’t have a title, but now reveals its director and cast.
Lionsgate revealed today that frequent Expendables stars Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Sylvester Stallone will lead the team for The Expendables 4, reprising their roles as Lee Christmas, Gunner Jensen, Toll Road, and Barney Ross respectively.
They have all been part of the franchise since the original The Expendables, and at this moment, they are the only holdovers from the other Expendables films.
