They used to compete for box office gold, now Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are teaming up to star in The Tomb, in which Stallone plays the architect of a maximum security prison who (you guessed it) wrongfully ends up locked inside his own prison which sees him fighting his way out of the very prison he designed, oh yeah and Arnie plays a shady inmate (big acting stretch there). Oscar worthy, not likely, action packed, bad acting and muscle galore….you got it!
Call me old fashion but if two names could ever define the action movie genre, it would be these guys. Together they dominated the action scene during the 1980’s, my most impressionable years which is probably why they warm the cockles of my heart!
The tomb will be directed by Mikael Hafstrom, with filming getting underway this spring for a 2013 release.
