Here is some news regarding The Expendables series.
The fourth movie is happening, which should not be too much of a surprise. But now news comes that it’s headed back to Bulgaria. According to Omega Underground;
Omega Underground has learned that filming will stay in Bulgaria, but shooting won’t begin until April.
Nothing further than that is offered. But I did some probing to a source in Bulgaria, who says that one of yesterday’s main newspapers, in an editorial about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, mentioned that Sylvester Stallone forecast both The Expendables 4 and Rambo V would head to Bulgaria ‘soon’.
In early 2014, Stallone said that The Expendables 4 would not film in Bulgaria because the conditions had become ‘unfavorable’. But that looks to have changed. As for Rambo V, recent rumors suggested that the movie would film across several countries.
I don’t see how Rambo V could be filmed entirely in Bulgaria, if it’s set mostly in Mexico. I recall a Jean Claude Van Damme thriller, The Shepherd: Border Patrol, which was set on the Mexican border but largely or entirely filmed in Bulgaria, and it simply didn’t look right.
Either way, we have men on the ground in Bulgaria, the radar for both movies has been turned on. I expect more soon.
