Hold onto your spandex tights wrestling fans, because it looks like two icons of the ring ‘Dwayne Johnson‘ and ‘Hulk Hogan‘ may be headed to the big screen to be villains in Sylvester Stallone’s ‘Expendables 4‘! For all the details on this check out the news below, and let us know what you think after the JUMP!
“Expendables 4” cast has just gotten its villain.
According to multiple online reports, the highly awaited action-packed film has just cast former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan as one of the bad guys.
Just like the franchise’s earlier films, the fourth installment will also be produced by Sylvester Stallone. Sly was previously rumored to have negotiated with Hogan regarding a role in “Expendables 4.” Based on the latest string of rumors, it looks like the WWE star has finally agreed to become “the most evil man in the world.”
“You know, Stallone gave me my first break,” Hogan said, according to Christian Post. “He has been a great friend for all these years. We had a great conversation, talking about the possibilities. Can I still run? Can I still jump? Well, not as fast or not as high, but I think Hollywood could find a good stunt man to help me out!”
“Terminator” star Arnold Schwarzenegger has also previously hinted that “Expendables 4” will be pushed through as long as film makers managed to arrive at a workable plot – an action-filled one that has been injected with some comedy.
Now that rumors about “Expendables 4” cast have surfaced online, it is highly likely that the film will actually make it to big screens.
“Expendables 4” cast rumors also include Manny Pacquiao, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Wesley Snipes, Ronda Rousey, Terry Crews, Jet Li, and Kellan Lutz.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has also been quite vocal about a villain role in the “Expendables 4” cast. Sadly, however, there has been no news on whether or not Johnson will be joining his fellow WWE celebrity in the roster of “Expendables 4” bad guys.
Another action star has also been rumored to be part of the fourth film. According to Cinema Blend, Jason Statham will also have a significant role in the upcoming movie. After all, the “Fast & Furious 7” star is a huge fan of Stallone’s.
“Working with Sylvester Stallone is beyond a pinch yourself moment,” Statham admitted. “I remember growing up watching his films. To be directed by him and to be in a movie that he has produced, and to be shoulder to shoulder with Sly, is a privilege any man who loves action movies would never turn their nose up at.”
