Can’t wait for The Expendables 2 (which releases this Friday) to see Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone together again on the big screen? Well, we have just the fix for you. As seen in the above screenshot, the two action film stars are working together on a new film titled The Tomb.
Set in a high security jail, Stallone plays a “security expert who designed prisons…only to be locked inside one he helped create. With the assistance of Schwarzenegger and others, they attempt to break out.”
Check out the full summary below:
Ray Breslin (Stallone) is a structural engineer who is wrongly convicted of a crime. Breslin designed a variety of high tech buildings and was a top structural engineer. After Breslin was wrongly convicted, he was sent to serve his sentence in a maximum security prison of his own design. During his time in prison, Breslin has analyzed every high security prison and gained significant survival skills, but faces his biggest challenge in trying to break out of an ultimate high-tech prison that he himself designed to be escape-proof.
Not only facing the challenge of breaking out of the escape-proof prison, Breslin also has the challenge of battling the ruthless warden Hobbs (Caviezel) and his corrupt guard (Jones). Breslin is assisted in his escape attempt by fellow prisoner Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger). Rottmayer is a wise, soulful and complex inmate who fights with other prisoners to keep their humanity, whilst they are struggling to stay alive. Breslin and Rottmayer will be joined in their escape by a third prisoner that is an expert in computers (50 Cent).
Directed by Mikael Håfström (1408, The Rite), The Tomb does show promise. The pairing of the two action legends is always exciting and the last time it happened, in The Expendables, it worked out well.
There’s also a strong supporting cast to pin our hopes on as well, it consists of Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Neill, Vinnie Jones and Amy Ryan.
So, all things considered, I’m feeling pretty positive about this one. No release date as of yet but I’d expect it to hit sometime in 2013.
