3 Expendables Movies Making Jason Statham the Highest Paid Actor in ‘Expend4bles’

Expend4bles may have been released to a lackluster critical reception, but the actors’ salaries for the endeavor are anything but.

Sylvester Stallone’s $800M franchise has spawned a fictional universe starring some of the grandest action heroes in film history, some from the past and some from the present. With the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis, etc., elevating the narrative, there was always a guarantee that the film series would result in box office profits.

According to reports, Stallone, an actor, producer, and co-writer on the first three Expendables films, was compensated handsomely for his efforts. However, the renowned action star recently witnessed a pay cut attributed to his minor role in the latest installment. As a result, Jason Statham has become the highest-paid talent in Expend4bles.

How Much Was Sylvester Stallone Paid For The Expendables Franchise?

According to Screen Rant and Parade, the Rambo alum received a grand remuneration for his contributions to the ensemble action thriller film series. The actor earned around $16 million for each of the first three Expendables flicks. This amounted to a staggering sum of $48 million. The totaled earnings indicate Stallone’s importance in the overarching narrative of the first three installments. Without including the most recent installment, the series has grossed between $214 million and $314 million at the box office.

Each endeavor cost around $80-$100 million to produce. While spectators were promised an entertaining series, many critics believe Stallone’s over-the-top franchise falls short of solid storylines and dialogues. The action sequences and humor were what kept the series going. The biggest lure was, of course, the star power.

Nonetheless, it would be inaccurate to claim that fans of the franchise haven’t relished Expendables‘ extravagant shenanigans. Sylvester Stallone‘s final outing in the franchise (re: Expend4bles) and passing the baton to Jason Statham has signaled a drastic change. It is uncertain whether subsequent projects can generate similarly outstanding box office returns, as Stallone’s involvement in the franchise drew many to the theatres.

Putting aside concerns about the future, let’s find out how much Stallone got paid for his most recent venture in the series, Expend4bles.

The Highest-Paid Actor In The Expendables 4

According to Showbiz Galore, the actor who received the highest salary in Expend4bles is the newest leading man of the franchise, Jason Statham. His salary in the latest entry is believed to be a whopping $25 million. As a result, he has become the highest-paid actor in the fourth installment. So, what about Stallone? How much did he get paid for the 2023 release?

According to Screen Rant, the actor received a fee of $3 million for his limited contributions to Expend4bles. The pay cut makes sense in light of his much smaller role. This implies that when the actor’s $48 million earnings from the first three projects are added, he was paid about $51 million for the lucrative franchise.

Sylvester Stallone currently enjoys a net worth of $400 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. This makes him one of the most expensive celebrities in Hollywood. The legacy that Stallone has left behind, particularly with his contributions to cinema in the ’70s and ’80s, justifies this staggering sum. We cannot wait to see what’s next for the revered action hero after Expend4bles. His current ongoing projects include Tulsa King and The Family Stallone.

The Expendables 4 is available for viewing at your nearest theatres.
