“Expendables 4” is going to be a real action hammer, that’s for sure. Jason Statham shared new clips showing him in a brutal duel with Iko Uwais.
The shooting of the long-awaited “Expendables 4” is in full swing. Actors and crew are currently in Greece. Everything is not only demanded of the actors and their stunt people. An assistant is said to have injured his foot during a stunt when a stuntman is said to have driven over the vehicle when reversing (via deadline). In addition, a painter is said to have fallen from a certain height during the preparatory work. Both received medical treatment and have already recovered.

What irony that it was crew members of all people who were hit by the actors and stunt people who risked their heads and necks in front of the camera. Jason Statham (“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”) has released new clips that not only allow a glimpse behind the scenes of the action production, but also give some hints about the story of “Expendables 4”:
The videos shared by Statham primarily show that the final may be in a freighter. Together with director Scott Waugh (“Act of Valor”) and film villain Iko Uwais (“The Raid”) he discusses the scenes and rehearses a direct duel against Uwais. He is known to be the new opponent in the upcoming “Expendables” film, an arms dealer with his own private army. And if you already have a martial arts expert like Uwais on set, then you don’t just let him compete against a no less experienced Jason Statham with guns, you let them loose mano-a-mano on each other. As you can see, Lee Christmas (Statham) will be handling two combat knives, while Uwais’ character uses batons, so-called tonfas.
Those in the know should remember the incredible kitchen fight between Uwais and Cecep Arif Rahman in “The Raid 2: Berandal” during these recordings. It’s definitely in the top 10 best screen fights of all time. So if the clash between Statham and Uwais in the “Expendables” film goes even remotely in this direction, the audience should expect a breathtaking scene.

“Expendables 4”: The stars have a lot of fun on the set
Jason Statham and Iko Uwais are by no means the only battle-hardened action heroes on the set of the new “Expendables” film. In addition to the returnees Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture, the Thai martial arts superstar Tony Jaa is also there. And he just demonstrated via video that he shouldn’t be underestimated:[display-posts orderby="rand"]
But there is not only training and fighting in front of the camera, but friendships are also made:
“It was a privilege to work with him. Thank you for your smile and laugh. “
Uwais also has words of praise for his co-star Jason Statham:
“It’s one thing to be good friends with a colleague on set. It is different when your colleague is a true gentleman, whom you look up to and for whom you have nothing but respect from day one. Thank you for taking me in Jason Statham. I am grateful and honored to be able to share the screen with you. “
Levy Tran, who is new to Megan Fox, 50 Cent, Tony Jaa as well as Jacob Scipio and Sheila Shah, published a picture of herself on Instagram with 50 Cent and Randy Couture. If you compare the previous pictures, you can assume that the recordings took place in the ship:
Sheila Shah, on the other hand, shows with her training video that the boys have to reckon with the girls:
So one thing is already certain: In the upcoming “Expendables” film, be it a spin-off or a continuation of the main series, it will definitely be pretty action-packed again. And this time, according to the promise of Sylvester Stallone, according to the basic idea of the series, not suitable for minors.
