In the 1980s, film fans cried out for a film that would team Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone together in one movie, but it never happened. However since Arnie’s returned to the movies from politics, they can’t stop working together. After two Expendables movies, the duo have now been confirmed for The Tomb, which starts shooting this spring, with Mikael Hafstrom (1408) directing.
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.
