EXPENDABLES 3 (Director Found)


Director Patrick Hughes
A director has been set for the next Expendables film.  Though franchise gatekeeper Sylvester Stallone admitted that he reached out to Mel Gibson for the Expendables 3 directing gig to no avail, he has now filled the chair with relative newcomer 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, who made his feature directorial debut on the 2010 thriller Red Hill.

Although the director is still somewhat unknown, his film Red Hill, was critically lauded. So maybe the Expendables 3 is in good hands. Who knows we will just have to wait and see.

Little is known about the plot for The Expendables 3 at this point, but Stallone recently stated his intention to add more humor to the franchise and noted that he hopes Jackie Chan will join the cast.

With a director now set, we should start to hear more solid word about The Expendables 3 soon.  



Emma Stone is in talks to lead Woody Allen's untitled next project, Deadline reports, although details of the film's plot are still unkown.

Allen's latest, Blue Jasmine, stars Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg and is set to hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles on July 26.

Stone, meanwhile, is currently filming Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. She's also slated to appear in the Alejandro Gonzalez Inaritu comedy Birdman, Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak and Cameron Crowe's untitled next film.

Bishop and Warpath
The majority of the cast in X-Men: Days of Future Past are familiar faces returning to the franchise; however there are some new characters being introduced as well. Now we thought we knew just about all the character that would be in the film, turns out we don’t!

Omar Sy
Director Bryan Singer posted a Vine video this morning showing off the personalized chairs for several of the characters in the film, and lo and behold Bishop and Warpath have chairs of their own.

French actor Omar Sy was rumored to be playing the time-displaced Bishop when he was first announced, and while not a confirmation, all indicators certainly point to that being true now.

In addition, Twilight actor Booboo Stewart was confirmed for a role in DOFP quite sometime ago, and like Sy, his role in the film was never disclosed. Its almost certain that he could indeed be playing Warpath in the film as he is the only Native American actor in the cast.

BooBoo Stewart
The Marvel Comics mutant ensemble's big cast also includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Daniel Cudmore, Adan Canto, and Fan Bingbing.

X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on July 18, 2014.
