Celebrities are set to appear as part of a new movie that will be produced by Legendary Pictures and Legendary Entertainment.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the casting, which will feature Tom Hardy, Mark Ruffalo, and Benicio Del Toro.
The movie, which is scheduled to be released in theaters this summer, is set in a world where technology has been invented and a group of young people are fighting to bring the technology to the masses.
The group, known as The Expendables, is fighting for their freedom in this futuristic future.
In the movie, the Expendables are working to defeat the threat of The Machines, which have been using the same technology to attack humans and control the Earth.
The Expendable 4 will star Hardy, Ruffalo and Del Toro, among others, according to THR.
The film will be written by Sam Raimi and produced by Kevin Feige, who has worked on such films as Godzilla and The Avengers.
The cast of The Expendable will be: Mark Ruffalos, Tom Hardy and Benito del Toro.
Hardy is a director and co-writer on the film.
The project will also include Mark Wahlberg, Ron Perlman, James D’Arcy, Dwayne Johnson, Bradley Cooper, John Leguizamo, Josh Brolin, Paul Bettany, Sean Bean, Bradley Whitford, Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Gad, Jeremy Renner, and John C. Reilly.
The announcement comes as the studio is trying to expand the film’s audience.
The movie has been criticized for being too lighthearted and over the top, and the actors are not happy about the portrayal of the characters.
“We believe that it is time to change course,” a statement from Legendary Entertainment read.
“We are committed to making the next generation of films that take a different tone and take us in a different direction, not only for us but for audiences around the world.
We are honored to have Mark Ruffala, Tom Hanks, Benicio del Toro, Ben Kingsley, Mark Wachowski, David Ayer, Kevin Feig and Legendary’s Kevin Feagan in the film team to create the next instalment of this iconic franchise.”
