Blackrock-born Patrick Hughes got his start 12 years ago with the taut modern Australian western Red Hill, starring Ryan Kwanten and produced by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek).

Hollywood came calling soon after, with Stallone asking Hughes to direct The Expendables 3, and ensuing box office hits including The Hitman’s Bodyguard and The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. 2022 will also see the release of the action-comedy Man From Toronto starring Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson.
