The man behind Power Book’s hit television series is coming to the big screen.
The Hollywood Reporter announced Tuesday that 50 Cent and Megan Fox have been tapped to join the new The Expendables movie.
According to reports, the Queens rapper and executive producer will team up with previous Expendables castmates Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, and Randy Couture for the fourth film in the franchise.
“It’s so much fun to bring these stars together for a no-holds-barred action film,” said Jason Constantine, president of acquisitions and co-productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, in a statement. “The new film will raise the stakes and be the biggest, most badass adventure yet.”
“Popcorn entertainment is guaranteed,” said Millennium president Jeffrey Greenstein, noting that the new additions to the roll call were meant to “keep it fresh and fun.”
The fourth installment will mark the transition from Stallone to Statham as the focal point and Fox as the female lead. Plot details have not been revealed but former stuntman Scott Waugh has signed on to direct.
The Expendables have a pending start date planned for October.
