While a fourth "The Expendables" installment is in early development, it will likely never be made since the third film only grossed $39 million domestically.

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.

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.

Fox is serious about growing their superhero styled shows as they now consider The Expendables. Yes, Sylvester Stallone’s franchise is now being considered for a mini series that would span the 3 films. He would produce the project for the network as the franchise was his baby. However, he will not star in the possible series. Fox has ordered for the script to be written. As for who will be on the possible show, rumor has it that it will be big TV stars and not the original cast.
The idea is a fun one, but I am not sure if it is worth it. I would think that Fox would want to break out of things and do some other projects. They need a little more flavors thrown in if they wish to be taken seriously as a network at this point. Maybe they can have Sylvester Stallone write »

"The Expendables" may be moving from the big screen to the small screen: Deadline reports that Fox is working on an event series based on the action franchise.
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:

When Sylvester Stallone introduced the world to The Expendables, the idea was to assemble the biggest and best action film stars and unite them . . . with lots of guns. The results of the three films so far have been decidedly mixed, and while sequels are in various stages of development, it looks like the next step will be bringing this template to television. Fox will be developing an Expendables TV show with Stallone himself producing alongside series producer Avi Lerner. According the »

Are you a Hollywood film director? Are you looking to senselessly destroy an army of bad guys but can only afford to pay one actor? There’s a good chance you’re covered.
Jason Statham is a rock hard man, it’s that simple. He’s starred in a range of action films from The Transporter to Crank, with over 40 other productions under his belt grossing a combined total in excess of $1 billion. Not bad for someone who used to jump off things in tiny speedos for a living…
Since his debut in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), the hard man’s hard man has earned himself a rugged reputation and clawed his way into The Expendables film series, which has become like an awards ceremony to celebrate the human tanks of this world.
But there’s a side to Statham that you might not expect. »

This review was originally published during our coverage of Fantastic Fest 2014.
Despite filmmaker Joe Lynch’s intentions, his latest effort, Everly, is destined to be paired with Die Hard for a festive back-to-back TNT double bill, drawing comparisons that may or may not exist. The bigger problem here is America’s response to a female-centric action movie, so intrigued by a concept that’s criminally underused and will probably be offensively exploited by Expendabelles. But that’s why we have Joe Lynch.
He’s pushing boundaries without even knowing it, ushering in a genre movement where ass-kicking leading ladies won’t be met with questions like “Why did you choose to make your protagonist female?” I don’t know, why don’t people ask directors “Why did you choose to make your protagonist male?” whenever Jason Statham movies come out? Lynch created Everly because an idea developed into a tragic story supported by big guns, »

It has now been 11 years since the Buffyverse came to an end (as far as its television shows were concerned, at least). Buffy The Vampire Slayer saw its final episode aired in 2003, while Angel saw its last episode air one year later – and fans of the shows still miss them both to this day.
One of the key reasons behind the popularity of the two shows was undoubtedly the characters. A talented group of regular cast members and supporting actors brought to life some of the weirdest, wackiest, funniest and most interesting characters anybody could ever wish for in a television series and many of them have gone on to obtain further success in Hollywood (and some of them had actually already made their mark in the world of film).
