“Passing the Torch: The Next Generation Joins the Expendables alongside Legacy Favorites”

Scott Waugh is currently considering his involvement in the Expendables movie series following Sylvester Stallone’s departure from the project.

Scott Waugh, the mastermind behind The Expendables 4, has provided some insight into Sylvester Stallone’s future involvement in the franchise. Although Stallone held a significant role in the first three installments, he assumed a less prominent position in the fourth film, allowing Jason Statham to take center stage. Waugh views this shift as thrilling, stating that Stallone values his time at this point in his life. Nevertheless, he reassures fans that Stallone will always remain an integral part of the franchise as its founder and initial director. With a combination of new and experienced talent, The Expendables’ future appears promising.

As per Waugh, the latest installment of Expendables has introduced a fresh team of actors as compared to its debut in 2010. The absence of seasoned stars like Bruce Willis and Harrison Ford, and the inclusion of young faces alongside Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham has been observed. Despite overcoming negative reviews in the past, the franchise’s future seems questionable due to the poor performance of The Expendables 4 at the box office. With just $8.3 million earned domestically and a mere 15% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it appears unlikely for the series to recover. Though producers have hinted at an Expendables 5 with fan support, Waugh suggests that instead of questioning Stallone’s involvement, it is better to contemplate if the franchise will continue at all.
