Stallone & Schwarzenegger

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.

This was debuted by the Wall Street Journal in a Schwarzenegger retrospective titled " The Human Sequel".

Stallone & Schwarzenegger in The Tomb First Look

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?

Arnie has never played a 'wise, soulful or complex' character - but apparently now he does all three, interesting.

Being the governator and a cheating husband grants you some acting chops.

I really don't see the need to call out him as a cheating husband. I really do not see the big deal. So he cheated. Who cares.

I was being ironic. But is there anything more macho than muscle bound men caged together with no escape and only themselves for company? How would they pass the time? Probably with a bit of reach-a-round action.

Tango and Cash but better!! They both look old and gritty for the role (which is a good thing) but still they should have made a movie in their young days, it would have been epic, oh well at least they are together now.

Schwarzenegger looks good, but he should donate his fee to California's economy (what's left of it).
