The news comes a month after Stallone shared an update on The Expendables 4 with a picture of a gold ring decorated with a jewel-eyed skull, suggesting the movie was in pre-production.

"Just finished the designing the new ring for EXPENDABLE 4," he captioned the snap. "It's a little heavy, but it'll definitely put some muscles on your fingertips."

The latest film in the saga has certainly been a long-time coming, with the last movie released all the way back in 2014. The first came in 2010 and the second in 2012. The franchise itself has grossed a whopping $804 million (£583 million) globally.

"To keep it fresh and fun, we've added exciting new stars to join the veterans; popcorn entertainment is guaranteed."
