Sylvester Stallone Leaves 'Expendables' Franchise Over Creative Concerns (Report)

Sylvester Stallone Leaves 'Expendables' Franchise Over Creative Concerns (Report)

Sylvester Stallone will not be appearing in the fourth movie in The Expendables franchise and he has reportedly departed over creative concerns.

The Oscar-nominated actor directed the first film in the franchise and he has turned down a possible pay day north of $20 million to keep his creative integrity in tact, according to Deadline.

Sylvester has reportedly butted heads with studio head Avi Lerner over the director, script, and creative elements of the fourth film.

Avi has not given up hope that Sly will appear in the film though.

“We’ve got disagreements with Sly, but we’ve had them for over a year and a half,” he told Deadline. “Right now, each one has opinion. We agreed on 95% of things, but there are certain things in production we don’t agree on. I don’t think it’s over, but what write whatever you want. In my opinion, it’s not dead.”
