Stallone and stars promote ‘Expendables’ in Asia

MACAU, China (AP) — Sylvester Stallone says that he hopes to film the next “The Expendables” movie in Asia.

The 68-year-old action star is in Macau on Friday to promote the third and latest installment of the action film series.

Stallone was joined by his co-star and former-California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The two received a hero’s welcome on the red carpet in the gambling mecca as about 200 fans waited for hours to get a glimpse of them.

Stallone drew loud cheers from admirers when he said the franchise would keep adding stars and athletes.

“They’ll be from all parts of the world,” he said. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to film in Asia very soon.”

“The Expendables” movies follow a team of mercenaries as they try to fight evil and save the world.
