Lionsgate has announced that the fourth movie in The Expendables franchise will land on September 22nd.

Expendables

The Expendables 4 will feature a crew of 50 Cent, Megan Fox, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Jacob Scipio, Levy Tran, and Andy Garcia lining up alongside returnees like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, and Randy Couture. You could have written the blurb yourself, as it reads:

“Armed with every weapon they can get their hands on and the skills to use them, The Expendables are the world’s last line of defense. But new team members with new styles and tactics are going to give the term ‘new blood’ a whole new meaning.”

Scott Waugh directs from a script by Spenser Cohen and Max Adams. Kevin King-Templeton, Les Weldon, and Yariv Lerner produce. Arnold Schwarzenegger is not part of the fourth film. Neither is Terry Crews after some Hollywood shennigans after he spoke out about sexual assault.

The disgusting den of vipers that sees fit to frequently lecture us little people about morals once again proved it has none.

Terry-Crews

After Crews spoke openly about being a victim of sexual assault at a Hollywood party in 2016, he spoke openly about the Hollywood culture that enables predators, protects deviants and attacks victims if they dare speak out. He testified to a Senate Select Committee on the issue:

“I’d done three movies called the Expendables with Sylvester Stallone, the producer of that film called my manager and asked him to drop my case in order for me to be in the fourth installment of the movie. And if I didn’t, there would be trouble.”

When the senator expressed her hope that he could still be in the film, Crews gave more details:

“Uh no,” he said. “Simply because this same producer is under his own sexual assault investigation. And, you know, abusers protect abuser.”

Crews was referring to producer Avi Lerner being sued himself for allegedly sexually harassing female employees. Crews’ testimony spoke openly and honestly about a culture of complicity in Hollywood that enables widespread abuse, with predatory men actively helping other predatory men avoid consequences.

“This was one thing I had to decide whether I was going to draw the line on: Am I going to be a part of this, or am I going to take a stand? And there are projects I had to turn down.”

Fair play to Crews. The Expendables 4 will miss him.
