Insiders claims Sylvester Stallone is no more involved with "The Expendables" franchise. The actor and director is allegedly istepping away from The Expendables 4 sources said.

A source tells Deadline that Stallone and Nu Image/Millennium chief Avi Lerner could not find common ground on a new director, on the script and on certain qualitative elements of the film. Stallone, who created the franchise is apparently concerned about a franchise connected to him having a film which is underwhelming.

When contacted by Deadline, Lerner confirm the differences, but said a decision hasn't been made yet. "We've got disagreements with Sly, but we've had them for over a year and a half," he told Deadline. "Right now, each one has an opinion. We agreed on 95% of things, but there are certain things in production we don't agree on. I don't think it's over, but write whatever you want. In my opinion, it's not dead."

Stallone leaving means he will leave behind a $20 million paycheck - the biggest upfront payday in his career. The actor has directed the first film and Co-wrote all the sequels.

It was revealed last year that the franchise will have an all female spin-off title "The ExpendaBelles," directed by Robert Lebovic.

He also starred as John Rambo in four films, all of which he wrote.
