Strongman Eddie Hall will make an appearance on the big screen in a Sylvester Stallone movie.
It has been quite the year for Eddie Hall to this point and it is only going to get busier from here. Along with rehabbing from an injury and planning a return to the boxing ring, Hall will also appear on screen in Sylvester Stallone’s film The Expendables 4.
Hall will appear in this movie as one of the villains. He was offered the part back in 2019 from Stallone himself when the two were in the UK. Hall will not be the only recognizable name in this film. The list includes Megan Fox, 50 Cent, Iko Uwais, Tony Jaa, and Andy Garcia.
The Expendables 4 began officially filming back in September. Nearly two months later, Stallone announced that his scenes were complete. This will be Stallone’s final appearance in the series. His character, Barney Ross, will no longer appear after the fourth film. This leaves Jason Staham’s Lee Christmas character in line to take over as the main character.
It has been a busy year for Eddie Hall because of his path to the boxing ring being halted by injury. Hall was prepared to take on Hafthor Bjornsson in the ring but was forced to postpone after suffering a torn bicep. Hall continued to rehab his injury with an eye on boxing and performed exercises to strengthen the right muscles. Hall announced that his bicep is now fully attached and he wants to take on Bjornsson once again. This might be a match for charity if Bjornsson accepts a recent offer.
In a way, Hall and Sylvester Stallone can be attached through boxing. Hall has ventured into the sport while Stallone was a huge part of promoting the sport through the Rocky series. Recently, the two got together to congratulate Tyson Fury after his victory against Deontay Wilder.
“Massive congrats to @gypsyking101From myself and @officialslystallone on your fight win 🏆 you have the done the country proud and the people of the world are in awe of your sportsmanship and dedication to boxing 🥊
The awareness you bring to mental health whilst conquering life is astounding also, so thank you from myself and millions of others around the world for being such a great role model.
