‘Expendables 4’ Secures China Pre-Sale

Upcoming Nu Image / Millennium movies “Expendables 4” and “Security” are headed for China. That follows deals with Steven Paul’s SP International Pictures on behalf of SSXH Beijing and Max Screen Film Distribution.

The deals cover equity investments in both films and provide Chinese distribution rights. Both movies may use China as a location for some scenes, though it is not expected that there will be enough Chinese elements for them to be considered as full co-productions.

Action thriller, “Security” is now beginning production in Bulgaria at Nu Image studios. It will star Antonio Banderas (“The Mask of Zorro,” “Desperado”) and Ben Kingsley (“Gandhi,” “Schindler’s List”) under the direction of Alain Desrochers (“Nitro”). The budget is pegged at $15m.

The story is too old to be commented.

I've enjoyed them for fun entertainment and they do have a lot of action which I love action movies anyway not to mention they are kinda funny.

WizzroSupreme1107d ago

Ugh, another Expendables? Who would've thought a reunion movie would spawn this scourge of a franchise.

RetrospectRealm1107d ago

Uh, everyone? They make money. That's why they get sequels.

Myst-Vearn1105d ago

why the 'ugh' ? are the movies hurting you somehow?! no one is forcing you to watch them. some people enjoy these movies.

RetrospectRealm1104d ago

I don't know why people complain about films they don't like getting sequels. It's really silly.

The films are good because they are what they are meant to be. Trying to fit as many action stars in a movie as possible and having a half decent plot.

Porcelain_Chicken1105d ago

Agree minus the half decent plots bit. The plots are ridiculously bad! Generic as generic gets! These movies are for nostalgia. Plain and simple. And that's ok.

EX 1 & 2 = Entertaining films

EX 3 = dumbed down childrens action flik

3 would have been fine without the drug out recruitment section of the noobies.

Gibson was funny as the villain and Banderas was entertaining as well. It's just that damned mid section that ruins the whole thing.

Zjet1105d ago

I actually love expendables,

I don't get why people have to be hipster douchebags regarding movies and video games.

Whats my favourite movie? Shawshank Redemption

Do i like Expendables? fuck yeah i do it's a bunch of beefcake guys from the 80s and 90s blowing shit up and being badasses.

Its entertainment, if someone enjoys it, its doing its job.

Never apologise for liking things others don't.
