Hulk Hogan Up For "Expendables 4" Villain

26 May 2015 6:44 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though Lionsgate hasn't officially begun moving on a fourth "The Expendables" movie yet, franchise star Sylvester Stallone revealed back in March that he's already made initial plans with one of them being a return to the R rating of the first two films.

We know Stallone will be back as Barney Ross, but today comes word of a potential new cast member - pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan. During a Q&A session at the Body Power Expo in Birmingham, Hogan dropped a tease that he and Stallone have been in touch about him potentially playing a villain in the film:

"We're trying to figure out a way to maybe turn me into the most evil man in the world. Y'know, Stallone gave me my first break and he's been a great friend. We had a great conversation, talking about the possibilities. Can I still run, can I still jump? »

Kiefer Sutherland, Mr T and more: Casting the TV Expendables

9 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Expendables 3 might not have set the box office alight, but you can't keep a good action hero down.

Sylvester Stallone is reportedly planning to bring his Oap ass-kicker franchise to the small-screen, with an Expendables event series in the works at Fox.

Much like how the films united action heroes of '80s and '90s cinema - Stallone, Schwarzenegger et al - so this new show is looking to bring together iconic TV tough guys from yesteryear.

Casting is yet to be confirmed, but in the meantime, here's Digital Spy's dream team for the TV Expendables.

1. Kiefer Sutherland

Credentials: 24

He might not be eager to reprise Jack Bauer any time soon (dammit!) but Kiefer has to be on this list. His commanding presence makes him a natural fit for team leader - the TV equivalent of Stallone's Barney Ross.

2. Michael Chiklis

Credentials: The Shield

Sylvester Stallone will produce an event television series based on the Expendables film franchise.

Stallone is partnering with Avi Lerner on a limited run programme for Fox, which would feature iconic television stars as a new group of Expendables.

This new Expendables team would unite to stop a global terrorist threat, according to Deadline.

It is not yet known whether Stallone will reprise his role as Expendables leader Barney Ross in the proposed Fox programme.

A pilot is currently being written by Ride Along's Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward with NCIS: Los Angeles creator Shane Brennan.

In addition to the proposed television show, two more Expendables sequels and a female-centric spinoff called The ExpendaBelles are in development at Lionsgate. »
