Hemsworth Brothers Sought For 'The Raid' Remake As 'The Expendables 3' Helmer Signs Up To Direct

Listen, we already know the idea of remaking “The Raid” is terrible, so let’s save our energy and skip the routine anger and focus on what we’re now learning about the upcoming do-over that was first announced over two years ago.

The Wrap reports that the project how has a director in Patrick Hughes, who is behind the camera for the upcoming “The Expendables 3,” suggesting producers don’t really want artistry in their action. But perhaps more intriguing is the nugget in the trade report that says “the Hemsworth brothers have been mentioned as possible targets for the hard-hitting action movie.” The probably means nothing more than some producer thinking about maybe ringing up and seeing if they can get Chris, Liam and (presumably) Luke to star in the thing (or maybe whatever pair they can grab). It’ll probably never happen, but hey, it’s nice to have dreams.

Out Of The Furnance” scribe Brad Ingelsby penned the script so maybe this version— which is said to follow a similar storyline to the original—will have lots of growly men and Pearl Jam songs. Guess we’ll find out soon enough.
