Three movies later, "The Expendables" 2015 sees the Sylvester Stallone-led and written series as a major franchise, also expanding to television as well as rumors of an all-female cast for "The ExpendaBelles," and now the film universe is set to expand even further after the fourth installment of the saga is officially confirmed.
Due to investment from China, it has now been announced that "The Expendables" 2015 plans are now officially expanding - people in the Asian country are understandably betting on a new film of the franchise after the last exploit, "Expendables 3," made almost half of its worldwide box office $200 million.
According to Empire Online, this "The Expendables" 2015 news includes no word on which members of the all-star action cast will be returning for the fourth installment, as the film's apparently in very early stages of production and it's still unknown whether Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Jason Statham or Dolph Lundgren will be coming back.
As Variety reports, the new Chinese investor for "The Expendables" in 2015 is SSXH and Max Screen Beijing, which will also be investing in another action movie, "Security," and the Stallone creation will begin shooting in 2016 for a 2017 release date, though there's still no word on who will be directing the film, either.
However, one thing is certain about the "Expendables" 2015 deal: the film will be the biggest of the franchise to date, with a budget going over $100 million.
According to Den Of Geek, the fourth installment of the franchise had been trying to find a new home after failing to reach very high box office numbers in the U.S., as the third movie made less than $40 million at the box office in the United States, while making $78 in China alone.
