Schwarzenegger on Stallone and Expendables 4 – “I would never do the movie without him.”

April 6th, 2017 by Andrew Comments

It was recently confirmed that Sylvester Stallone had departed from the next Expendables movie due to differences with Nu Image/Millennium chief Avi Lerner over the direction of the franchise. Now as a result co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly says that, despite not having seen a script yet, he will likely not appear in the next movie either.

“There is no Expendables without Sly, I would never do the movie without him, no.
I have not seen the script; I don’t even know if there is a script, even though they want to shoot in August again, like they usually do”

He goes on to discuss the previous movies and his thoughts on franchise in general, suggesting that if a script was right, he might reconsider.

“I thought the first and second one were terrific, [but] the third one, I thought my part was not written well. It was also not playing well in the movie, as far as I was concerned. Maybe other people believed differently. But I didn’t believe that I had any value in the movie. I love the franchise, by the way. I think it’s a spectacular franchise, The Expendables. I think that Sly has good ideas, what he wants to do with it, and I think if they write a really good script [in] which my part is very well-developed, I would do it. If not, then I won’t do it.

What do you think? Is it time for him to also step aside?
