Bruce Willis goes to prison with director Antoine Fuqua in The Tomb?

05.27.2010
My mind's not operating at 100% right now (could be the booze), but I can't quite put my finger on what other film(s) THE TOMB sounds like. Here, just wait till I get to the description.

According to Deadline, Summit Entertainment is in early talks with Bruce Willis to star in the prison escape drama THE TOMB. Antoine Fuqua (BROOKLYN'S FINEST, TRAINING DAY) is "circling" to direct.

Willis would play Ray Breslin, "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."

God, it's like at the TIP of my brain! Help!

THE TOMB was originally written by Miles Chapman (ROAD HOUSE 2: LAST CALL, a special thanks credit on BOOB JOBS & JESUS... what?) and then rewritten by Jason Keller (MACHINE GUN PREACHER, "Big Shot: Confessions of a Campus Bookie").

Willis will next be seen in the much anticipated THE EXPENDABLES. He's also set to begin filming on the video game adaptation KANE & LYNCH this August.
Extra Tidbit: Bruno's role in THE EXPENDABLES is supposed to be a cameo, but you'd think he has a bigger part the way they're selling the thing.

Yep, Prison Break All the Way,

I stopped watching after season 2, great show, but the movie just seems a tad boring.

You could be thinking of any number of films... The Rock (kind of), Flightplan, Tango and Cash (just wanted to mention that movie), the bit in Sword and the Sorcerer where the old dude who built the castle helps them escape...

Willis & Fuqua together again?

i thought they had a fallout early in production of Tears of the Sun and Bruce Willis vowed never to work with Antoine Fuqua again, no?

The premise does sound familiar. But not as a prison movie necessarily. Kind of a structural Frankenstein. Gosh, I dunno. Bruce would make a cool inmate though.

This sounds great. I love Willis and love Prison movies. Also, Prison Break was a great show.
