USA Today spoke to Arnold Schwarzenegger the other day and the subject of a fourth Expendables movie came up. The third movie in the series didn’t exactly break box office records but it still made over $200 million worldwide.
USA Today states even after the last disappointing outing he has pushed producer/writer/Expenda-guru Stallone not to give up on Expendables and write a fourth:
“I just think it’s a terrific franchise. I told Sly to write another one or have someone else write another one. A really terrific story. Because I think it’s a great idea to have an ensemble piece with that many action heroes in a movie. Especially if the comedy is really done well.
It could be a great story. There’s definitely room for another one.”
I would like a 4th movie; personally I want Sly to deliver what he promised with the third movie: action that would rival The Raid and make it bloody as Hell. Oh and about the comedy, keep it to a minimum with zero self-referential humour.
