Stallone Is No Longer Expendable

The original Expendable will not be returning for a fourth film.

Sylvester Stallone has left the film series after concerns over how the direction of the fourth installment was taking shape. According to Deadline, Stallone and producer Avi Lerner could not come to terms on aspects of the movie, including a script and director.

Sources said Stallone was concerned about the potential underwhelming results of the upcoming film. He had been nominated for an Oscar in his role in Creed, and taking a chance with another Expendables film may link him to a potentially dying franchise.

Lerner said while he and the actor have had differences, he denied Stallone has left the series.

“We’ve got disagreements with Sly, but we’ve had them for over a year and a half,” Lerner said. “I don’t think it’s over…In my opinion, it’s not dead.”

Stallone has been a part of the action hero dream team since the film series’ creation. He has starred alongside the likes of Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Scott Adkins, Randy Couture, Antonio Banderas, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.
