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? »

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.
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.
