It looks like Sigourney Weaver has passed on the upcoming Expendables spin off, the 'Expendabelles' reports cinemablend;
"We've been hearing rumors of an all-female version of The Expendables - nicknamed The Expendabelles - going back to 2012, and while names like Linda Hamilton, Milla Jovovich, and more have come up in wishlists and conversations, there is one actress in particular whom many would call the queen of female action stars. Sigourney Weaver will forever go down in cinema history for playing hero Ellen Ripley in the Alien franchise, and Sylvester Stallone himself has talked about his desire to have her be a part of the larger franchise. Too bad that's not going to happen.
Buried in an article about how Sigourney Weaver is joining the A-list cast of the fantasy adaptation A Monster Calls, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the actress has said no to the idea of being a part of Expendabelles. Sadly, the article contains no other information about the situation, simply stating that she has passed on the project."
In my opinion, there has never been a more convincing female bad ass on the silver screen than Ellen Ripley (due in large part to how great of an actress Weaver is) she would have defiantly worked well in the role of the leader of this all female Expendables team.
Wesley Snipes says the time is right for a Blade 4, make it happen Marvel Studios!
“I’m getting ready for that. I’m starting to work out. I’m going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We’re going to try to cover all the boundaries.”
Jackie Chan once again states that he would be in an Expendables 4 if the role was large and important.
You can't really blame him for wanting to be in the film for more than 5 minutes.
Pierce Brosnan confirms he's in talks for an Expendables 4
Keep in mind guys, an Expendables 4 happening is purely speculation at this point. EX3 is not doing as well as Lionsgate had hoped it would, and they will likely wait until they see the dvd/bluray sales to decide whether or not to go forward with another film in the franchise.
"A Midwestern farmer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter (Abigail Breslin) even as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie, in this audacious, genre-bending debut feature from director Henry Hobson.
Schwarzenegger. Art house. Coming of age. Monsters. Filmmaker Henry Hobson unites this unlikely cinematic foursome in one of the year's most audacious discoveries, Maggie. Working from John Scott 3's script, whose genre-bending ingenuity garnered it a place on Hollywood's much-talked-about Black List, Hobson creates a world that is at once familiar and foreign.
Wade (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a farmer and father of three, living with his family in America's rural Midwest. When his eldest daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) becomes infected with a mysterious disease that slowly turns its victims into zombie-like creatures, Wade is left with a decision that no father should have to face — while Maggie, still a typical teenager at heart, is acutely aware that life as she knows it is soon to end. As she changes slowly but surely, her loving father remains by her side. But with her sense of smell heightening and her cravings for meat intensifying, how long can they delay the inevitable?
Schwarzenegger is superb in an unexpectedly naturalistic performance, and his talents are matched by Breslin's affecting subtlety. First-time director Hobson shows himself to be a master of tone as he brings the calibrated restraint and rich texture of Scott's script to the screen, capitalizing on the tension between the ongoing necessity of daily work and Maggie's looming fate. Featuring striking cinematography by Lukas Ettlin, whose playful treatment with focal depths conveys Maggie's changing approach to her surroundings, Hobson's assured debut pits his characters against their own internal apocalypses."
