The future of the Expendables franchise has seemed uncertain ever since The Expendables 3 flopped at the box office. Rumours surfaced about a new film being planned around a year ago, but then Sylvester Stallone fell out with the producers and that seemed to be the end of it….until now.

‘Deadline’ now reports¬†that Millennium Films has locked in Stallone to film not just Rambo 5 in September 2018, but also The Expendables 4 in early 2019. The company has also signed a deal with Chinese distributor Dadi which could basically be a co-financing agreement for both films – which makes sense as The Expendables 3 actually did rather well in China.

This series started pretty well, and can only go back up after that lousy third entry….though I wonder if anybody has been brave enough to say to Sly that maybe he’s getting a little old for all this action stuff….

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
