A director has been set for the next Expendables film. Though franchise lynchpin Sylvester Stallone admitted that he reached out to Mel Gibson for the Expendables 3 directing job, he has now filled the role with Patrick Hughes. Stallone announced on Twitter that The Expendables 3 needed “freshness, class, and much badass” and that he had found it in the Australian filmmaker, whose only feature directing gig was the 2010 thriller Red Hill.

Little is known about the plot for The Expendables 3 at this point, but Stallone has stated that he wants to add more humor to the franchise and hopes Jackie Chan will join the cast. With a director in place, we should start to hear more about The Expendables 3 soon.
