The 75-year-old actor will be joined by fellow franchise co-stars Jason Statham (Lee Christmas), Dolph Lundgren (Gunner Jensen), and former wrestler Randy Couture (Toll Road) in the latest iteration of the action star blockbuster series. All 4 actors have appeared in the 3 previous films.

In addition to the veteran quartet, the new film will see the addition of Megan Fox, 50 Cent, and international martial artist Tony Jaa in new roles.

“It’s so much fun to bring these stars together for a no-holds-barred action film,” said Jason Constantine, president of acquisitions and co-productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group. “The new film will raise the stakes and be the biggest, most badass adventure yet.”

Production is set to begin in October and the film will center on Statham and Fox’s characters, the outlet noted.

Premiering in 2010, the original “Expendables” detailed a group of elite mercenaries led by Stallone tasked to overthrow a Latin American dictator. Other stars included Mickey Rourke, Jet Li and Terry Crews.

The 2012 sequel, “The Expendables 2,” added to its list of ‘80s action heroes with appearances by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

“The Expendables 3,” released in 2014, saw the addition of Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, and Harrison Ford.

It is still unknown if any of them will make appearances in the upcoming sequel.

The first 3 films combined have earned over $829 million worldwide and prove actors of a certain age can still pack a punch at the box office.
