In a recent conversation, Jason Statham talked about Sylvester Stallone’s decreased involvement in the latest Expendables movie. Statham expressed that he cherishes the days when Stallone is present on set and believes those to be the best ones. It is worth noting that Stallone had earlier announced his plan to retire from the franchise after completing filming for the fourth installment, allowing Statham to take up the mantle. As the movie hits theaters, it has become apparent that the absence of Stallone’s presence has left a void during the franchise’s transition into a new phase.
In a recent interview with Cinema Express, Jason Statham, a veteran star of the Expendables franchise, addressed Sylvester Stallone’s reduced role in the latest installment, Expend4bles. Statham explained that Stallone’s character is absent for undisclosed reasons in this particular story, and the team must navigate without him. However, Statham also noted that having Stallone on set is always the best day for the cast and crew. The official plot description teases a narrative transition with the introduction of new team members with unique styles and tactics, giving “new blood” a whole new meaning. It remains to be seen if Stallone will return for future Expendables films or if the fourth movie provided a proper send-off for his character. Expend4bles is now showing in theaters worldwide.
