We’ve been getting so many updates and pics from the set of Expendables 4, which is what I’m calling it until we have a concrete title, that I’m thinking that I should make a new category for it here at the site.
Another interesting tidbit to come out of the weekend which was made by Tony Jaa himself is that fellow Thai action star Dan Chupong was spotted on set. Best known for the insane action film Born to Fight, Chupong isn’t officially a cast member but if he is, he’ll be joining an already strong Asian cast that also includes Iko Uwais who’ll be playing the villain. Jaa posted new pics from the set which you can see below!
Chupong might be involved on screen or behind the cameras but hopefully he’ll be involved in some capacity. We will have to wait and see.
It looks like The Expendables are going to go up against some pretty powerful Asian baddies this time around. Aside from Uwais being named lead villain, all other new cast members are still radio silent on what parts they’ll be playing.
Jaa also shared some BTS pics with co-star Jason Statham:
Stallone is back with Jason Statham, Randy Couture and Dolph Lundgren as the original cast. Other new additions include Megan Fox, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Andy Garcia.
Stunt pro Scott Waugh takes over in the director’s chair and he helms from a script penned by Spenser Cohen with current revisions turned in by Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more details to come as the next Expendables film is officially filming!
