After years and years of action movie fans wishing it, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger finally shared the screen for a decent amount of time in 2013’s Escape Plan, and it was perhaps rather too late, though the film was still a reasonable prison movie/action thriller combo. Commercially it did okay business, but it would have been a huge box office smash if it had been released twenty years before. Anyway, a great portion of its worldwide gross of $137.3 million came from China. The film made $40.9 million over there and was one of the biggest hits of the year.

Therefore the original producers are behind a sequel which is being financed solely by China. Its being written by the first film’s screenwriter Miles Chapman, though it doesn’t have a director yet. Stallone will be returning, but only in a supporting role, while sadly Schwarzenneger won’t be in it at all. Pre-production will commence this coming January 15th ahead of the start of shooting on March 15th in Ohio and China.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
