'Expendables 4' Cast Update: Hulk Hogan casted as main villain; Sylvester Stallone kicks Manny Pacquiao out of the film?
Hulk Hogan is rumored to be part of the 'Expendables 4' as the main villain. Hulk Hogan admitted that he and Sylvester Stallone have talked already about the making of the "Expendables' franchise. Manny Pacquiao was also named, but later was denied by Stallone himself.
Hulk Hogan, 61, maybe doubted himself about being one of the casts of 'Expendables 4.' There were questions like if he can still run or jump and he said 'Well, not as fast or not as high, but I think Hollywood could find a good stunt man to help me out.'
Having talked with Stallone, Hogan said "We're trying to figure out a way to maybe turn me into the most evil man in the world, so. You know, Stallone gave me my first break and he's been a great friend for all these years. He's the exact same guy today that he was 30 years ago." Hulk Hogan was the villain in Stallone's movie 'Rocky III.'
The 'Expendables 3' though earned the lowest among its movie installments because of the hacker that leaked the movie just before its screen date. Fortunately the 26-year old male hacker was arrested already, thanks to the United Kingdom's Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcements, MPAA and the U.S Homeland Security Investigations.
Film piracy is the number one enemy of show business and Stallone was very appreciative of those who helped them. "I'd like to thank the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit at the City of London Police for working with U.S. Homeland Security Investigations to apprehend the suspect in this case. It is important to protect the rights of creatives around the world from theft," Stallone said.
Meanwhile, Manny Pacquiao's name was dragged in the upcoming film but Stallone did not confirm this. He explained that Manny Pacquiao is a great fighter, but would not be in the movie. "Pacquiao was never gonna be in it," said Stallone.
