Red Hill’s Patrick Hughes Will Direct The Expendables 3, So Sayeth Sly

Patrick Hughes

Well if anyone’s going to know who’s on tap to direct “The Expendables 3″, I guess Sylvester Stallone would know, wouldn’t he? He’s only the star, creator, and producer on the franchise, after all, and figures to be all three again for the third movie.

From the Twitter feed of Sly himself, “Red Hill” director Patrick Hughes has been named the new director on “The Expendables 3″, taking over from Simon West, who directed the second movie, and Sly himself, who did the honors behind the camera on the first flick.

Hopefully the Aussie director will follow more in West’s footsteps, given that Sly’s directing on the first movie was borderline incomprehensible. At least, for those of us who likes following the flow of action and other silly stuff like that.

In “The Expendables 3″, currently set for 2014, Sly, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, and everyone else who didn’t die in the last two movies (plus some new additions, of course, possibly even some guy that just got out of prison) will kill a bunch of people and make manly jokes and totally bro out onscreen.
