After Sylvester Stallone, it's Arnold Schwarzenegger who doesn't want to be a part of "The Expendables 4" anymore. Apparently, the actor stated that he cannot imagine the franchise without Sly.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Arnold Schwarzenegger said that he will not appear in "The Expendables 4" without Sylvester Stallone. The Terminator star admitted that there is no Expendables without Sly and therefore he would never do the movie without him.

However, the absence of Sylvester Stallone is not the sole reason why Arnold Schwarzenegger insisted on not go forward with the fourth film. The actor felt that in "The Expendables 3" his character was not properly developed and if the same issue arises in again he will don't want to be a part of the movie.
"I think if they write a really good script [in] which my part is very well-developed, I would do it," EW quoted Arnold Schwarzenegger. "If not, then I won't do it."
The actor admitted that the first two Expendables movies were terrific. In the third one, however, Arnold Schwarzenegger felt his part was not written well.
He stated that he felt like his role did not do any contribution to the plot. Arnold Schwarzenegger also added that in his personal opinion his character was not blending well with the script of "The Expendables 3".
Arnold Schwarzenegger said that he didn't have any value in the third movie. He, however, clarified that he loves the franchise, though and believes it to be spectacular.
