Sylvester Stallone is done with The Expendables 4 and apparently the franchise as the actor released a video on social media where he passes the baton to Jason Statham, and the first look at Tony Jaa has also been released.
When the movie was first announced a few months ago, it was said it would focus more on Jason Statham and his character, Lee Christmas, and less on Sylvester Stallone as Barney Ross, where Stallone confirms as much in the following video.
"EXPENDABLES finale for me. Today is my last day of filming … Heading home. So they go," Stallone posted two weeks ago on Instagram. "They just finished a very successful stunt, and it's time to be moving on. This will be my last day. I'm enjoying it, but it's always bitter-sweet. When something you been so attached to, I guess, now it's been about twelve years, and ready to pass the baton on to Jason and his capable hands." Watch more below.
