Expendables spin-off starring Jason Statham to shoot in October

Sylvester Stallone to appear in the film

Jason Statham will headline the spin-off

Sylvester Stallone recently made hints to an “Expendables” sequel shooting shortly.

The Instagramming Stallion this week confirmed that filming is indeed kicking off soon, October to be exact, but the film isn’t so much an “Expendables” film as it is a spin-off film fixing on Jason Statham’s Lee Christmas character.

Everyone from the previous films (all but Bruno, right Sly?) will appear in the new film but by-and-large it’ll be Statham’s movie.

With Covid the way it is around the globe, can only imagine the majority of those ‘appearances’ will shoot locally in L.A somewhere, with Statham the only mainstay jetting off to a far-off location to film the majority of the movie.

While a director hasn’t been outed, last year reports suggested that “Disturbia” and “Eagle Eye” helmer D.J Caruso was in talks to helm.
