WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan officially confirmed during an interview at the Body Pro Expo event in Birmingham, United Kingdom that negotiations with Sylvester Stallone have transpired in regards to starring in "The Expendables 4". The iconic six-time WWE Champion debuted in Hollywood motion picture in "Rocky III" in 1982 portraying Thunderlips; an imposing professional wrestler who faces Rocky Balboa in a charity boxer versus wrestler bout.
"I was talking on the phone with Sly (Stallone) about doing 'The Expendables 4.' We're trying to figure out a way to maybe turn me into the most evil man in the world," Hogan explained during the Body Pro Expo in Birmingham in May.
"The Expendables" - which debuted in 2010 - directed by Sylvester Stallone, has seen glorified alpha male, uber-machismo displayed featuring a litany of muscle bound action heroes; Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Randy Couture, and Steve Austin. "The Expendables" franchise has grossed $790 million worldwide at the box office.
Sylvester Stallone has yet to confirm as to whether Hulk Hogan will star in "The Expendables 4". Elsewhere, the pop culture icon revealed major plans in preparational training to compete at WWE WrestleMania XXXII inside the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX in 2016 before an estimated 100,000.
"(WWE CEO Vince McMahon) challenged me to get in shape for WrestleMania, so that's what I'm doing now. I'm down to 295 now. That's how much I weighed when I was in high school," commented Hogan.
