So a couple of big announcements were made regarding the upcoming The Expendables 3. The first was that Jackie Chan was confirmed for the sequel. But what’s a film without a director? Not a film, that’s what.
The breaking news is that Australian director Patrick Hughes is set to direct the latest sequel of the successful men-on-a-mission franchise.
Hughes, with only one feature film credit on his resume (the western Red Hill), was given Sly Stallone’s blessing to shepherd the latest Expendables sequel.
Deadline acknowledges that Hughes will start work on Expendables 3 pre-production later this week. Production begins mid-August.
