If there was ever a franchise that beat a dead horse it would be Fast and Furious, oops. I meant Expendables.
It appears that Expendables 4 will be given a $100 million budget and begin filming in 2016 for a 2017 release, according to Variety. But I thought the last film bombed only making $39 million in the United States? Thanks to $166 million on the international market, the Expendables franchise lives on.
Expendables (2010) – $274,470,394 box office
Expendables 2 (2012) – $305,428,172 box office
Expendables 3 (2014) – $206,850,000 box office
No announcements regarding director or cast have been made at this time.
What made Expendables 3 the best one of the series to date was performance of Mel Gibson as the villain. It does certainly help that many people already view him as a villain and would like to punch him in the face as well. Jean-Claude Van Damme was the bad guy in two with Eric Roberts starting things off in the first film.
Who would you like to see as the villain in the fourth film?
