After a few rumors did the rounds recently, Sly Stallone has announced that some "new blood" is needed to helm the third installment of the action franchise, and Aussie director Patrick Hughes has been chosen. Read on for details.
Sylvester Stallone has just revealed via Twitter that Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) will take over from him as director on the third Expendables movie. "EX3 Needs freshness, class, and much badass," says Stallone. "....Found it... Blood Sweat and Fears, coming soon... My best PURE ACTION FILM - The last RAMBO - I want this one to top it and I believe it will with NEW BLOOD." After dropping a few more hints he just came out with it. Stallone also revealed that he did indeed try to get Mel Gibson to helm the movie as was rumored, and fancied Jon Woo for the gig too but things didn't work out. There have been quite a few actors -- including Jackie Chan, Nic Cage and Wesley Snipes -- also said to be in line for roles in the threequel, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
