Stallone enters The Tomb... with Schwarzenegger?

01.11.2012

The Summit thriller THE TOMB has had a fascinating life cycle -- it started out as a Bruce Willis project that would have reunited him with TEARS OF THE SUN director Antoine Fuqua. When they both abandoned the project, Willis' fellow Action Veteran Sylvester Stallone stepped in.

Now AICN is claiming there's another intriguing turn in the tale: the possible addition of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The old chums must've had a blast recently while filling hundreds of henchmen with bullets on THE EXPENDABLES 2 and are itching to work together again.

The story of THE TOMB "follows Ray Breslin, the world's foremost authority on structural security -- specifically prisons. His skills are put to the test when he is framed and put in a high-security prison of his own design and must find the person who put him there."

Schwarzenegger was apparently also briefly interested in playing Breslin before opting instead for THE LAST STAND with Korean director Jee-woon Kim (THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD). Now AICN hears that Arnie is in discussions to join the project in a different role that has his interest -- perhaps the antagonist?

The movie does still need a director. Maybe Sly got on well with his EXPENDABLES 2 director Simon West, or (even better) his BULLET TO THE HEAD director Walter Hill?

Extra Tidbit: Sure they've held up well, but why couldn't this sort of movie happen in the 80s when these guys were in their beefy A-list prime?

Sounds good. I can't wait for Arnie to get back to what he does best.

This plot has been done before

Not that it's a bad plot device, but "prison expert must escape from prison" is too cliche to really need yet another one.

Sounds bad ass! I don't know if it'll be the case or not, but I'd love to see Arnold play a villain again. Either way, whether they're friends or foes, the movie is going to kick some serious ass

While they're at it, what about The Expendables VS Predators? Wait... That'd be a pretty short movie.

The possibilities are endless

Imagine these two working together as villans. Now pit them against two younger jacked up actors (I would say Vin Diesel and The Rock). Now that's something I would gladly pay to see.

I think as they've aged... the egos that kept them apart are somewhat gone...bc they've realized their own mortality...they realize their older men, and they aren't gonna live forever...so make movies together, have fun, while it lasts...bc time waits for no one.

I always wanted to see them do more of a Tango & Cash type movie together, but I'll take what I can get.

I think that's Stallone's first wife Sasha, who he married in 1974, had two sons with and later dumped for Brigitte Nielson in 1985.

who's the lady with Stallone? His wife?

extra tidbit: no doubt! They took pictures together in the 80's, but never worked together! This would be AWESOME! Let's hope it happens! They should add Kurt Russell so they can have a Tango and Cash vibe!

Wasn't this movie a project for Mark Wahlberg or Christian Bale having to break out of a prison and having to find the man who kidnapped or killed their daughter?

You are confusing this with another movie that is currently in the making called Prisoner. And neither Wahlberg nor Bale is involved with that anymore. The last I heard about that movie was Michael Fassbender was in talks. Not sure if he still is.
