Revisions in the script for “The Expendables 4” delayed the shooting of the movie, to star Sylvester Stallone and 43-year-old actress Li Bingbing. The lead stars were approached and offered a role in the film three years ago, Li revealed.
After the delays because of the script changes, the movie will finally start filming in May, Li shared on Wednesday at the product presentation of an expensive watch she is endorsing.
