During an interview with Screen Rant, Alan Ng shared his thrilling experience working on The Expendables 4. When Ng was asked about the creative freedom he was given by the filmmaker Scott Waugh to implement his stunts, he said,
“Scott gave us so much freedom to create the fight scenes, and Jason gave his full support to create the fight scenes.”
He further said that he had to work under a lot of pressure, as he joined the project when the shooting had already started hence there were some time constraints. However, with the great coordination and support of Jason Statham and Waugh, the scenes were implemented as planned. Ng said,
“I’m very grateful that Jason and Scott put so much trust in me and my team to create some awesome fight scenes in such a tight time frame.”
When Ng was asked about which actor from the film did their own stunts, he replied by saying.
“It would be Jason. He does the fight and stunts himself and picks up the choreography after seeing it once. He moves extremely well; his timing and spacing is fantastic.”
The actor also claimed that it was easy working with Statham and Tony Jaa as both of them were quick learners and preferred doing their own stunts.
