It’s Guns & Golden Oldies On The Small Screen As ‘The Expendables’ TV Series Announced

6 March 2015 5:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As Expendables 3 star Harrison Ford survives an eye-popping plane crash, more surprise news emerges that the Sylvester Stallone-created brand is TV-bound.

It was thought a female-led movie – The Expendabelles – would be the next chapter for the franchise, but now Fox are putting an “event series” on the slate which will do for small screen icons of old what the films did for the likes of Stallone and Dolph Lundgren.

The definitive Hollywood resurrection man is on producing duties, whilst Shane Brennan, Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward script the concept, which doesn’t sound a million miles away from the tried and tested formula.

Speculation will be rife on who’ll take part, but it’s safe to say Richard Dean Anderson (Macgyver), Mr T (The A-Team) and Lorenzo Lamas (Renegade) might soon be getting a call. I also see Fred Dryer (Hunter) and Dirk “The Face” Benedict being in the mix somewhere. »

The Expendables heads to TV, Expendables 4 and 5 still planned

5 March 2015 11:13 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Expect a lot more from Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables in the years ahead - on TV and on the cinema screen.

Notwithstanding the fact that the PG-13 The Expendables 3 did weaker business than its two predecessors, the film was still a solid hit. And the Sylvester Stallone action movie star reunion franchise has still banked over $750m worldwide and counting.

What's more, the series just keeps on coming. Fox has now inked a deal to bring The Expendables to television in what's being described as an "event series". Which presumably means something along the lines of 24: Live Another Day, but it may just be new television lingo that we don't understand.

Sylvester Stallone is producing the show, with Greg Coolidge (Ride Along) and Kirk Ward on writing and executive producing duties.

What's more, this isn't stopping the cinema adventures of The Expendables. Plans remain afoot for The Expendables 4 »

'The Expendables' Is Going To Be An Event Series Now

5 March 2015 12:51 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

$786.1 million. That's how much "The Expendables" trilogy made in cinemas worldwide, so if you're wondering why a television series is now happening, there's your answer. It looks like the concept of shit-tons of washed up movie stars joining forces is now going be tweaked into washed up TV stars joining forces. Deadline reports that Fox is working on an event series that will bring together "iconic" TV stars to team up and fight terrorists, but probably on an even cheaper budget than "The Expendables" movies. Greg Coolidge ("Ride Along"), Kirk Ward, and TV vet Shane Brennan ("NCIS," "CSI: Miami") will write the show, with the latter acting as showrunner. There's no word on casting yet, but apparently the project is moving along even as fourth and fifth installments of "The Expendables" are being worked on, along with "The Expendabelles" (Get It?). If any of those movies happen, we'll be surprised. »

The Expendables TV Series In The Works At Fox

5 March 2015 12:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even though The Expendables 3 was cited as a misfire by the film community, that hasn’t stopped Lionsgate from ploughing ahead on further ensemble adventures. The Sylvester Stallone-led action franchise is now making the transition to the small screen for an event series in development over at Fox.

Per Deadline, The Expendables TV show will be presented as “a fun action drama.” While that brief description shares a passing resemblance to the films, the action movie star ensemble will be traded for a group of “iconic TV stars” who will pose “as a new team of highly-skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist.”

Stallone, who starred in and penned the big screen outings, is executive producing alongside the films’ producer Avi Lerner and NCIS exec, Shane Brennan, who will also serve triple duty as showrunner and co-writer.

"Expendables" TV Series In The Works

5 March 2015 9:51 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Fox is reportedly developing an event TV series based on "The Expendables" film franchise. Sylvester Stallone will executive produce alongside regular "Expendables" producer Avi Lerner and "NCIS" veteran Shane Brennan.

Brennan will serve as show runner and will write the series alongside Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward. The aim with the event series is to do for old TV action heroes what the films did for old movie action heroes, and the tone is said to be a fun action drama.

There is no cast attached or approached yet, but there's a lot of potential candidates for that list - Tom Selleck, David Hasselhoff, Richard Dean Anderson, Scott Bakula, Jeffrey Donovan, Lucy Lawless, Jennifer Garner, Kiefer Sutherland, etc.

A fourth and fifth instalment in the film series, along with a female-centric offshoot, are in various stages of development.

5 March 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

According to the trade, "Expendables" mastermind Sylvester Stallone is on board to executive produce the show, which would feature well-known television action stars of yore, in much the same way as the films have recycled '80s and '90s heroes. Per Deadline:

It is described as a fun action drama that unites iconic TV stars as a new team of highly-skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist.

[...]

There is no cast attached or approached yet but the producers have plenty of beloved TV action stars to choose from: 'Walker, Texas Ranger''s Chuck Norris, who already is part of 'The Expendables' feature franchise, '24''s Kiefer Sutherland, 'Magnum, P.I.''s Tom Selleck, 'Xena''s Lucy Lawless, »
