Starring alongside Stallone will be Adriana Barraza, Paz Vega, Yvette Montreal, Sergio Peru’s-Mencheta, Oscar Jaenada and Joaquin Cosio.
No news yet on who will score the film. Brian Tyler composed the score for the last film, adding his own music alongside Jerry Goldsmith’s classic music and cues.
