In an interview with The Jenna Ben Show, Couture says it certainly seems like a fourth film is in the works, saying that a script is in the works. The actor also says that they're hoping to schedule a shoot either this fall or next fall, but he is unsure which. Couture admits that he hasn't seen a script but that The Expendables 4 has gone through multiple iterations.
"It sounds like we're gonna get to do 4. They've been kicking it around for a couple of years now but I've just recently heard from my agent that they're working on the script for [Expendables] 4 and they're planning to schedule filming for Expendables 4 for this/next fall. So I haven't seen the script yet. They had one a couple of years ago that they were talking about making Expendables 4 out of, and then it [the previous script] got away. You just never know, it's such a weird business sometimes"
Couture had previously said The Expendables 4 script was great, but it sounds like the one currently being floated is different from what he saw last year. How the film could have changed is anyone's guess, but it certainly seems like now would be as good a time as any to put a cap on the franchise.
