Sylvester Stallone still has plans for his Expendables universe of movies, it seems...
Whilst it didn’t make as much cash as its predecessor, The Expendables 3 was still a solid, profitable box office hit. And the suggestion around the time of its release was that an Expendables 4 was in the offing. Furthermore, there was talk too of a female-driven action team-up movie, The Expendabelles. Oh, and an Expendables television show.
However, nothing has happened in the last year or so that we’ve heard of, and it’d been assumed that the projects had slowly fallen by the wayside, at least for the time being. Not so, though. Randy Couture, who feaured in the series, has now revealed that both The Expendables 4 and The Expendabelles are live projects.
Chatting to the New York Daily News, he said that “I heard they had a script they »
Way back in February 2014, we reported that director Robert Luketic had come aboard to direct an all-female Expendables spinoff entitled ExpendaBelles, but that was the last we had heard about the project. That report revealed that The Expendables star Sylvester Stallone will produce this action-thriller alongside Kevin King Templeton, but it seems that isn't the case anymore. Sylvester Stallone recently clarified that he has no involvement whatsoever in this project.
The actor reportedly reached out to Deadline to clear up "erroneous reports" that he is involved with the project, telling the site that he isn't participating in the film in any way. While we haven't reported on this project since Robert Luketic took over as director, Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables co-star Randy Couture recently teased in an interview with New York Daily News that this ExpendaBelles movie may move forward ahead of The Expendables 4. Here's what Randy Couture »
Way back in 2013, it was reported that a female Expendables spinoff – titled The ExpendaBelles – was in development, with Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde) signing on to direct and Sylvester Stallone and Avi Lerner said to be producing.
Well, it seems that Stallone wants it made clear that he’s not involved , with one of his reps telling Gossip.com that: “Sylvester Stallone has no involvement whatsoever in the Expendabelles project. Any and all reports that he plans to proceed with an all-female cast of the Expendables franchise are completely false and should be disregarded altogether.”
Original reports has suggested that The ExpendaBelles would film last year, while a host of actresses were said to be in contention, including the likes of Meryl Streep (Into the Woods), Cameron Diaz (Knight and Day) and Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), Naomi Watts (21 Grams), Marcia Gay Harden (Fifty Shades of Grey), Li Bingbing »

Kevin Spacey now runs a movie studio. This is awesome news! It's a New Year, so it must be time to make new changes. As many know, Ryan Kavanaugh's Relativity Media has been having quite a bit of trouble recently - they filed for bankruptcy and have been marred with lawsuits and a myriad of problems. But apparently they're turning things around, as Kavanaugh himself has announced a new set of executives who will take over steering the ship. Actor Kevin Spacey and Producer Dana Brunetti, long-time partners in the industry, will be taking over Relativity Media. Variety reports on the news with quotes (see below) and a few details. "Spacey will become chairman of Relativity Studios and Brunetti president as of mid-February." This was an announcement that took many by surprise, but it's a rather inspired move, as this could shake things up in an interesting way. Brunetti »
