Andy Garcia has become the latest name to join the forthcoming ‘The Expendables 4’ for Lionsgate and Millennium Media.
Garcia is said to be playing the role of a CIA agent assigned to accompany the Expendables on their dangerous mission.
At the end of August, an announcement was made listing the full cast for the follow-up, with Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture returning following their previous involvement in the first three movies. Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, Megan Fox and Tony Jaa are newcomers to the fourth.
The focal point of the latest entry is said to focus Statham and Fox as the film’s leads.
Scott Waugh (Need for Speed) will direct from a script penned by Spenser Cohen, Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly.
Statham, Kevin King Templeton, Les Weldon, Yariv Lerner, Jeffrey Greenstein and Jonathan Yunger will produce.
Stallone directed the first movie and wrote the script with David Callaham, focusing on characters with names such as Lee Christmas (Statham), Gunner Jensen (Lundgren) and Toll Road (Couture). The initial movie, released in 2010, gathered up the biggest names in action movies from the 1980s, wrestlers and international martial arts stars.
Filming will begin in October.
