EX4 Script Is In!!!

Not sure how this has been missed by anyone on the internet...Gregory Poirier seems to have finished the script of EX4 at the end of July already!! He actually posted it on his Twitter account: "Expendables 4 script is in. Watch this space for more details.

Does this mean it's finally happening? Latest news of Sly's next projects seem to point to the direction of other movies such as Samaritan or Hunter. Will Sly make EX4 before heading to doing his own projects? I for one am tired of waiting until this project happens...

EX4 Getting Closer to Reality

Since Stallone has started his preparation for Rambo 5 - to be filmed in Bulgaria - the news outlets in the country have begun reporting on the star and his future trips to Bulgaria. 24 Chasa, one of the most reputable news outlets there is reporting that EX4 will indeed begin filming in Bulgaria in April.

Other semi-confirmation is Gregory Poirier's twitter page where he's now listing EX4 as one of his current projects. It was reported in the past that Poirier would team up with Sly to write the script for the fourth installment.

EX4 Back on Track for NOW!

After six months of doubtful news including a Couture type of hint to the filming start date, there is a more solid confirmation of the EX4 project being back on track.

According to Deadline Stallone will return for Rambo 5 in September 2018 and star in The Expendables 4 in early 2019. Apparently the Chinese exhibition giant Dadi has pre-bought mainland China distribution rights to Sylvester Stallone-fronted action sequels The Expendables 4 and Rambo 5 from Avi Lerner’s Millenium Media.

I remain skeptical until the project starts filming and we see set photos. A similar deal was announced in October 2015 and then fell apart. in December 2016 a distributor bought the rights to EX4 in Germany but again nothing followed and Sly backed out of the project entirely in March 2017 before he was convinced late last year to return.

There is no question that Avi is trying hard to make the project take off but the stars have not been lining up for him. Maybe this time...

Looks Like EX4 Is Actually Happening Again!

After a few “not sure what to think of” posts on Instagram, Sly has now posted a rather firmer confirmation that EX4 is back on track by teasing the return of Barney. Something must be cooking for Sly to hype EX4 in such a fashion. His Christmas picture with Avi and now his series of posts on Instagram insinuating the return of the Expendables team doesn’t seem to be a coincidence any longer or some sort of a wishful thinking on the action icon’s part. It looks like it’s finally happening or at least there is intent of making it happen again. It’d better be, they’ve been teasing it for over 2 years!!

A Glimpse of Hope?

I don't even feel like updating the blog anymore as I've come to believe that this project is dead for good. But again now and then there's a glimpse of hope that things might be back on track. This was the case last week with first a picture of Sly & Avi appearing together in a Christmas family reunion maybe telling us that they are at least somehow friends again? Or talking some serious EX4 deal? And then Sly for the one millionth time posted a couple of  teasers on his Instagram saying that he was getting back into action shape despite being old, and that old school action was coming back. Go figure.

Maybe it doesn't mean anything as always but like I said, there is maybe a glimpse of hope...
