Numerous fans from all over the world will definitely be very disappointed to find out that their favorite actor, Sylvester Stallone, will not star in the latest The Expendables movie. It has just been revealed that the actor decided to drop out of the franchise.
So, Stallone will not be part of the fourth The Expendables movie, which is definitely not an expected decision, even more so as the star was reportedly supposed to be paid no less than $20 million for his collaboration with this movie. When it comes to the reason why Stallone decided to drop out of the new movie, it has been revealed that the actor and He and Nu Image/Millennium chief Avi Lerner were unable to agree on several aspects, including a new director, the script and some qualitative elements of the film.
The news was reported by Deadline, which indicated that according to its sources, the famous actor was concerned about “potentially underwhelming results of another franchise with which he is indelibly linked.” The actor will be playing the role of Rocky Balboa once again in the upcoming movie Creed. Of course, fans cannot wait to see the popular actor reprising this role.
Well, seeing The Expendables without Stallone will be something unexpected and it is yet to see what the producers will decide for this story. However, it is important to mention that this is not the first time when Stallone and Lerner have had disagreements. Reportedly, this happens often and the two finally manage to work things out. The disagreements were also confirmed by Lerner.
“We’ve got disagreements with Sly, but we’ve had them for over a year and a half,” Lerner said according to Deadline. “Right now, each one has an opinion. We agreed on 95% of things, but there are certain things in production we don’t agree on. I don’t think it’s over, but write whatever you want. In my opinion, it’s not dead,” he went on to add.
So, it is yet to see if the rumor will be confirmed and what will happen with this movie if Stallone is indeed out.
