That's it, it seems to be really happening. Sly is teasing another EX hint to the 4th chapter starting soon. Statham was a sure bet and Banderas will be of party too. The boys will be back in town soon!

Nothing really exciting but just a post by a former German soccer player posing with our favorite Expendables Trio: Sly, Arnold and Lundgren. The photo is open to all sorts of speculations from a simple friendly gathering to Sly brainstorming EX4 with his co-lead actors. Yours to determine.

In an interview with Grit Daily News, Campbell and Grobman, the CEO and Founders of Campbell Grobman Films, discussed their entertainment career trajectories as powerhouse female producers in Hollywood, and their current work on EX4 was also mentioned.
Known for their past successes with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, Hollywood producers, Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman have made new strides with their recent productions like Rambo: Last Blood and Red Sonja.
Asked about when they knew they had reached success as a company and if there was a particular film that was a turning point for them, this is what they had to say:
"We got a strong start with Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D unexpectedly beating some more high profile movies at the box office upon the opening. After that, we went on to make more dramatic and light hearted films as well (She’s Funny That Way). We also continue to make action films because we are able to reach a broader audience. We are currently working on The Expendables 4 and The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard."
This should further confirm that EX4 is indeed in the works, and we should be hearing more news soon.
Thanks to EXfan57 for the tip.

According to HN Entertainment some of Lionsgate’s 2020-2021 releases include the new Chris Rock-produced Saw reboot, Doug Liman’s Choas Walking, Ryan Reynolds’ The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife, and Keanu Reeve’s John Wick: Chapter 4/Rally Car. There also is an expectation that Sly Stallone’s The Expendables 4 and Chris Evans’ Jeykell will eventually be released by 2021. Lionsgate and Chad Stahelski were developing a feature film reboot of Highlander, but it remains to be seen if that project will be part of the deal.
Assuming that Lionsgate remains consistent with an August release in 2021 which is 2 years away, there is no wonder why filming has not yet started. I suppose there is plenty of time, but the only problem is that the main cast is not getting any younger!!
A French movie outlet reported a recent interview with Statham himself on F&F 9 & EX4. This is what he had to say:
"Sylvester Stallone has been talking to me about this for a while, and the film should be done before we're all too old." Again, that's not my decision. If Sly calls, I’ll answer immediately, we have so much fun on the Expendables sets. "
