The movie, which will go on floors in January/February 2017, will be shot at virgin locations of India, Russia and Bulgaria to name a few. Producers, Avi and Yariv confirmed the news to a leading daily by saying,
“I’m excited to be working with Nilesh and look forward to helping him bring his epic vision of The Expendables to life, making it a landmark across all industries.”
The Expendables (2010) starred action stars like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, amongst others. Producer Nilesh promised that the star-cast of the Indian version will not disappoint either.
“All I can say is belt up, the apocalypse is coming,” said Nilesh on being asked about the star-cast.
Given the fact that the biggest international action superstars teamed up for The Expendables, it would be interesting to see if the Indian Producer manages a casting coup by roping in the biggest Indian action stars: Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan and Sunny Deol!
Hollywood blockbuster The Expendables is a three film franchise and it would be interesting to see if Bollywood follows the similar route.
