First Look: Stallone and Schwarzenegger as Prisoners in 'The Tomb'
Nice goatee! While you can certainly catch Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger together in The Expendables 2 coming up this weekend, the two action superstars are both booked in another movie coming up after this, called The Tomb, directed by Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström. The prison-break thriller stats Stallone as a "the world's foremost authority on structural security" who gets thrown in one of his own max-security prisons, and it looks like he befriends Schwarzenegger's Rottmayer to figure out why, who and how to get out. Thanks to a tip by The Daily Blam, we've got the first photo of the two in The Tomb.
The Tomb comes from a script originally written by Miles Chapman, written by Jason Keller (Machine Gun Preacher, Mirror Mirror), being directed by Mikael Håfström (Drowning Ghost, 1408, Shanghai, The Rite). Not only facing the challenge of breaking out of the escape-proof prison, Breslin (Stallone) also must battle the ruthless warden Hobbs (Jim Caviezel) and his corrupt guard (Vinnie Jones). However, he meets fellow prisoner Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) a wise, soulful and complex inmate who fights with other prisoners to keep their humanity, while they struggle to stay alive. This was shot mostly in New Orleans and will be released by Summit in 2013. The Tomb doesn't have a date set yet, but we'll keep an eye on it. Cool?
