First Look: Stallone and Schwarzenegger together in ‘The Tomb’
The ‘Expendables 2′ co-stars will star in another movie together, and here’s a look.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were once pretty big box office rivals and the biggest action heroes of their times, but now they seem to have cultivated quite a friendship together. Not only are they starring together in ‘The Expendables 2′ which opens this weekend (Arnie had a cameo in the first part), they are also looking for projects to work on after that film. One of them is the action movie ‘The Tomb’, and we have an image from the film that reveals both of them together.
Ray Breslin (Stallone) is a structural engineer who is wrongly convicted of a crime. Breslin designed a variety of high tech buildings and was a top structural engineer. After Breslin was wrongly convicted, he was sent to serve his sentence in a maximum security prison of his own design. During his time in prison, Breslin has analyzed every high security prison and gained significant survival skills, but faces his biggest challenge in trying to break out of an ultimate high-tech prison that he himself designed to be escape-proof.
Not only facing the challenge of breaking out of the escape-proof prison, Breslin also has the challenge of battling the ruthless warden Hobbs (Caviezel) and his corrupt guard (Jones). Breslin is assisted in his escape attempt by fellow prisoner Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger). Rottmayer is a wise, soulful and complex inmate who fights with other prisoners to keep their humanity, whilst they are struggling to stay alive. Breslin and Rottmayer will be joined in their escape by a third prisoner that is an expert in computers (50 Cent).
Mikael Håfström is directing, whose two movies are ’1408′ and ‘The Rite’ which I enjoyed much more than I thought I would. The plot sounds like something I’d watch, but I wonder what happened to ‘Bullet to the Head’ which was Stallone’s other action movie that got mysteriously delayed.
