'The Expendables' was the action franchise aimed to end all action franchises. Or rather it was supposed to be with its massive ensemble cast of veteran actors, proficient in the genre. The franchise is now heralded as the second coming of older actors of the genre who carved out a name for themselves decades ago, but had to pivot or transition into other work in their career.
Led by Sylvestor Stallone, 'The Expendables' franchise is being said to be developed in the Indian Industry of Bollywood by the original producers as well as Nilesh Sahay, nephew of Sanjay Dutt. While not a lot is known about Sahay, with only one acting credit to his name, apparently he's into action, so this should be good. Sahay is directing the Hindi remake along with original 'Expandables' producers Avi & Yariv Lerner.
'The Expendables' succeeded as a franchise because it brought together fan favourite stars, together in a movie that delivers on its promise of action, but also had heart and gave each star purpose in its story. The first film avoided (for the most part) cringeworthy moments as fan-service, but still provided an enjoyable movie that followed through on its premise.
