The currently director-less project, The Tomb has already signed Sylvester Stallone and is looking to bring on Arnold Schwarzenegger to play a key role, according to AICN. Antoine Fuqua was previously attached to direct.
Sylvester Stallone will still play the lead role of Ray Breslin, and expert prison designer who has to escape from the most secure facility he ever helped create. Both veteran action stars will soon come together for The Expendables 2, alongside Bruce Willis, who was also interested in The Tomb’s lead role, but passed.
The Tomb is also in need of a director, and Deadline reports that Mikael Hafstrom (The Rite, 1408) is in talks to take on that job. There’s no news on when the film might shoot.
