Simon West is to direct the sequel to Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables.

The Con Air director will take over from the actor, who has said that he will only act and write the follow-up to the action film, according to Deadline.

West is currently attached to the Dwayne Johnson movie Protection and has also committed to another Nicolas Cage project titled Medallion.

He also famously directed Rick Astley in the video for the singer's 'Never Gonna Give You Up'.

Stallone has not disclosed details of the plot for The Expendables 2, but said earlier this year that he was finding it difficult to come up with a story.

The actor-turned-director has been working on bringing together the original cast, including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Bruce Willis and Dolph Lundgren.
