Escape Plan (2013) S: Stallone, Schwarzenegger

Confirmed: Schwarzenegger Joins Stallone in The Tomb

It was confirmed today that Arnold Schwarzenegger will star opposite Sylvester Stallone in the action-thriller The Tomb, which will be directed by Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström.

An Emmett-Furla Films/Mark Canton production, the film is produced by Atmosphere Entertainment chairman Mark Canton (300, Immortals), Randall Emmett (Lay the Favorte, Rambo), George Furla (Lay the Favorite, Rambo), Robbie Brenner (Machine Gun Preacher, A Perfect Getaway), and Kevin King-Templeton (The Expendables, Rambo, Rocky Balboa). Emmett/Furla Films is financing the project. Summit holds worldwide distribution rights to The Tomb and will release the film in North America.

Written by Miles Chapman for the screen, with a rewrite by Jason Keller, The Tomb follows Ray Breslin (Stallone) who is the world’s foremost authority on structural security. He’s analyzed every high security prison and has gained a vast array of survival skills. But all Ray’s ingenuity and knowledge are about to be put to work in the most challenging test he's ever faced: escaping from the master prison of his own design.

Schwarzenegger, in the role of Church, plays a complex inmate with multiple shades of grey. He’s the guy who fights to keep the prisoners from losing their humanity in their darkest hour as they struggle together to stay alive.

The Tomb, which Brenner had originally set up as a spec script at Summit will be shot in Louisiana this spring.

"I am thrilled to be making 'The Tomb' with two film icons – Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger," said producer Mark Canton. "It is the perfect pairing for this high octane thriller. Robbie Brenner, Emmett/Furla, Kevin King-Templeton and I have been working long and hard with Summit to bring them together for this dynamic project."

Schwarzenegger and Stallone will next be seen on screen together in The Expendables 2, which is currently in post-production and will be released this summer by Lionsgate. Schwarzenegger just wrapped filming The Last Stand, produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and directed by Jee-woon Kim.

Håfström recently directed horror film The Rite starring Anthony Hopkins for New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. He also directed 2010’s Shanghai starring John Cusack; the Jennifer Aniston, Clive Owen thriller Derailed; MGM’s 1408 starring John Cusak and Samuel L. Jackson, and the Swedish drama Evil.

Since Arnold is back...somehow I get the feeling we going to see him in another terminator flick.

Hafstrom is mediocre at best. He's the guy behind 1408 and THE RITE.

I have to chuckle a bit at the description of Arnold's character, as I can't picture Arnold being able to do a role with that kind of depth.

With that plot description and the 'past the sell-by-date' acting "talent" involved...this is going to be terrible.

Caption This: Schwarzenegger and Stallone in the Hospital Between Shoots



Confirmed earlier today to be re-teaming for the action-thriller The Tomb, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone will next appear on the big screen in August 17th's The Expendables 2. Between now and then, however, they're real-life hospital partners as you can see in the below image, just posted by Schwarzenegger with the following comment:

"After all the action, stunts & physical abuse shooting The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, it was time for a little tune up on my shoulder. Look who was coincidentally waiting in line behind me for his shoulder surgery. Now we're ready for another round of great times and action when we shoot The Tomb. #greattobeback"

Hey, man. Be it as it may...Stallone still looks good for his age and can still kick ass. Arnold might need to convince me moreso.

It looks like Arnold is wearing a poor fitting Arnold mask.

After he dies, Stallone needs to leave his body to science or a chemical plant.

Don't forget these guys are 65 years old. They still look better than the typical 65 year old.

That's because the typical 65 can't afford all that surgery and chemicals.

Or because the typical 65 year old has spent a lifetime of eating 5,000 calories of junk food a day and never exercised...

Come on, guys. You never look your best in a hospital. One day it'll be your turn and you'll see. Be sure to post a picture of it so we check out how great you look in an ass revealing gown and crappy hospital bed.

Shit, who cares what they look like in a hospital while undergoing surgery? I'll reserve judgement based on how the movie turns out.
