Stallone and Arnie are due to grace our screens in just a few days as The Expendables 2 arrives this Thursday. I can’t wait for it, but it is also good to know that once I have seen it, there is still another teaming of the action icons in director Mikael Hafstrom’s (The Rite, 1408) sci-fi action flick, The Tomb. Whats even better about this upcoming film is that it features the pair in prison and, i presume, beating the crap out of everyone!
The first official image (above) went online this morning, and while it is pretty basic, it is great just seeing such giants of cinema stood together in a scene. It is great to finally see Arnie back, and he looks ultra confident and pretty happy being back on screen in this image. Stallone looks as awesome as ever, and I reckon The Tomb will be amazing! Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Neill, Vinnie Jones, 50 Cent, Amy Ryan, Matt Gerald and Faran Tahir make up the rest of the cast.
Ray Breslin (Stallone) is the world’s foremost authority on structural security. After analyzing every high security prison and learning a vast array of survival skills so he can design escape-proof prisons, his skills are put to the test. He’s framed and incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself. He needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars.
There is no official release date yet, although the film is scheduled for a 2013 release.
