It started with the ‘Expendables‘ movie, and now Arnold Schwarzenegger is onboard Syvestor Stallone’s ‘The Tomb’ movie with director Mikael Håfström. The aged 80′s are back!
Sylvestor Stallone is keeping his action movie comeback rolling forward and before we get to watch he and Arnold Schwarzenegger do their thing in ‘Expendables 2′, he’s already got the ex-Governor working in his ‘Tomb‘ movie with Mikael Håfström (The Rite, 1408). Summit will be distributing, and ‘The Tomb’ is that dream teaming the studios would have loved to have seen back in the 80′s when these two action hero’s were in their prime. Now I think it’s even better timing as we saw in the ‘Expendables’ since they’ve been through the mill and seem to just enjoy themselves now rather than taking it all so uber seriously.
Stallone will play the character Ray Breslin who’s the world’s foremost authority on structural security. Breslin is framed and incarcerated in a prison of his own design, and has to figure out how to escape. Hmmm…if he designed it, shouldn’t that be just a little too easy? His films aren’t always based on total logic, but who cares, this is just fun a return to the 80′s we all would’ve loved to seen.
Schwarzenegger will play Church, “a complex inmate with multiple shades of grey.” He’s described as “the guy who fights to keep the prisoners from losing their humanity in their darkest hour as they struggle together to stay alive.”
‘The Tomb’ is slated to be released in 2013 working to have another summer of action movies.
