Stallone and Schwarzenegger to Take on Jim Caviezel in 'The Tomb'
Back in the 80's, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger used to compete for box office dominance. But lately, the two friends have been sharing the screen. Arnie made a cameo in the first Expendables and plays a much larger role in the sequel now that he's finished with his political duties. The musclemen recently signed on to star in The Tomb, in which Stallone plays the architect of a maximum security prison who is wrongfully incarcerated and must fight his own design to escape, and now the observant eyes at AICN point us to a story reavealing Jim Caviezel has joined the cast as the prison warden. More below!
The Tomb producer Mark Canton (300, Immortals) spoke with The Matthew Aaron Show and revealed that the star of "Person of Interest" (one of the best shows on TV you're probably not watching) is set to join the cast as the warden. No word yet on what size that role will be, but I'm glad to see an actor with some true range added to this cast. Canton also compared the Sly and Arnold pairing to De Niro and Pacino in Michael Mann's Heat, implying heavy screen time for the two of them (Arnold plays a prison inmate with shady motives). The Tomb will be directed by Mikael Hafstrom (1408, The Rite), with filming getting underway this spring for a 2013 release. In the meantime, we'll have to wait and see Sly and Arnie kicking ass together on the big screen in The Expendables 2 on August 17th of this year.
