The Expendables TV Series In The Works At FOX!
Fox is developing a TV event series based on the film franchise The Expendables.
The Expendables, written and starring Sylvester Stallone, follows a group of elite mercenaries, led by Stallone’s Barney Ross, who undertake missions in order to get revenge on their enemies.
So far Fox has ordered a script for the project, which is being described as “a fun action drama that unites iconic TV stars as a new team of highly skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist.”
Stallone will serve as an executive producer along with Avi Lerner (Olympus Has Fallen), Kevin King (Grudge Match) and Grant Anderson while Greg Coolidge (Ride Along) and Kirk Ward (NCIS: LA) will write the script and also serve as executive producers.
The third installment was released in 2014, with all three earning $800 million worldwide, and will see two more Expendable sequels as well as a female-centered installment.
The three films have seen a lot of big action movie stars join forces, the likes of Harrison Ford, Chuck Norris, Mel Gibson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Antonio Banderas as well as many, many more.
Stallone won't be appearing in the show and no cast members have been announced as of yet.
I would like to see at least one cast member from the movies lead this group, maybe Randy Couture or even Kelsey Grammer.
The good thing about a show like this is that the cast can be changed at any time. If someone wants to leave or if someone doesn't work out after a couple of episodes; they can just be written out and someone new can be brought into the group.
