Screen Gems is hoping the buzz behind the original and its sequel, which will bow in the states on March 28, will result in fans coming back for the remake.

While the film may not have the same martial art fighting styles included in this film, Hughes’ background with heavy action should  should satisfy both fans of the originals and auds not familiar with the original films.

Hughes (pictured) is currently in post on Lionsgate’s “The Expendables 3.” He is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment and Gang, Tyre, Ramer & Brown.
