Sylvester Stallone is the king of self-promotion so of course, he took to his Instagram to give an update on the fourth installment of the Expendables.
The actor teased the sequel by posting a photo two days ago of a golden skull ring with purple stone eyes – assumed to be his character’s new lucky ring. He wrote, “Just finished designing the new ring for EXPENDABLE 4 It’s a little heavy, but it’ll definitely put some muscles on your fingertips.” You can check out the Instagram post below!
The first Expendables was released back in 2010 and it pulled in an impressive $274.5 million at the global box office. The following installments of the franchise grossed a cumulative of $530 million at the box office as well so it should come as no surprise that a fourth one is in the works. News of the fourth Expendables film goes all the way back to 2018 when Stallone struck a deal with Millennium Films to shoot the eponymous mercenary group’s next big-screen mission. Giving more validity to the fact that we are getting a fourth film were comments from Randy Couture, who plays Toll Road in the films:
“It sounds like we’re gonna get to do [Expendables] 4. They’ve been kicking it around for a couple of years now but I’ve just recently heard from my agent that they’re working on the script for [Expendables] 4 and they’re planning to schedule filming for Expendables 4 for this/next fall. So I haven’t seen the script yet. They had one a couple of years ago that they were talking about making Expendables 4 out of, and then it [the previous script] got away.”
