This won’t be news to anyone who reads this site, since it was first reported here. But the old news has become official news, as Andy Garcia is confirmed for the new Expendables movie.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Garcia will play a CIA agent assigned to accompany the Expendables on their dangerous mission.’.
So it looks like the usual suspicious agent angle, seen in Predator and multiple other Expendables movies.
It also seems that the trades are still not using A Christmas Story to reference the film, although Sylvester Stallone himself confirmed that that is only a working title.
The film is directed by Scott Waugh and written by Spenser Cohen, an October start date is expected in Bulgaria, with possible other locations in Europe (Spain?).
