April 24th, 2013 by Marc Comments


An Australian director has been confirmed to helm Expendables 3 – and it’s not Mel Gibson.

Relative newcomer Patrick Hughes was confirmed by Sylvestor Stallone on his Twitter feed with the aim of bringing “freshness, class, and much badass” to the action franchise.

The Aussie made his feature directorial debut on the 2010 thriller Red Hill.

Stallone, meanwhile, has promised to add more humour to the next film and noted that he hopes Jackie Chan will join the cast

Look out for more news in the coming months as production hots up on the forthcoming film

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
