John Abraham is reportedly set to play Sylvester Stallone in the remake of action flick ‘The Expendables’.
The actor confirmed that he has been approached for the film, which will be co-produced and directed by Nilesh Sahay.
He was cited in a popular publication saying, “Yes, I’ve been approached for the film, I’m happy and honoured. I’ve always admitted that I am a Stallone fan. Every time I watch one of his films, I hope for an Indianised version, and The Expendables can definitely lend itself to a desi avatar because it’s a truly entertaining and commercial film which has done better business outside of North America.”
Meanwhile, Sahay added, “I told them that if there was a fourth installment, he was the guy from India. And when he decided on an Indianised version set in a hyper real world in the near future with relevance to today’s times, John’s was the first name that came up. He is on the cusp of being one of the biggest action heroes we’ve seen from India.”
