The Barney Ross depicter in the 'Expendables' film franchise has announced on Twitter that 'Red Hill' director Patrick Hughes is set to direct the third film.

Through a guessing game hosted on Twitter by Sylvester Stallone, fans finally got to know who would be the director for "The Expendables 3". The actor, who co-writes the film series, announced that Patrick Hughes would serve behind the lens for the third installment.

Stallone opened the guessing game, saying, "The director is an Aussie," and later added, "NOT Mel...Fresh talent... Directed a Damn good film 2 years ago...Think." Unable to hide it anymore, the 66-year-old action star gave a big hint that the director's last film "was more RED than BLUE," which led to Patrick Hughes and his notable film "Red Hill" in 2010.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hughes will meet the heads of Millenium to receive the official offer for the directing gig.

Previously, Stallone had revealed on the micro-blogging site that the upcoming film would include "NEW blood and more humor." He announced that Steven Seagal would not join the latest project, but saw a glimpse of hope in Jackie Chan.

Regarding "some young bloods" in the cast ensemble, he explained, "By young I mean 22 to 27. Not big bruisers but tech wizard, super brains and a young woman who is not a sex symbol but funny ,tough,REAL."

Eyeing a start date of late July-early August, the third film will see the return of some original cast members, including Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren.
