Sylvester Stallone Takes The Tomb

ON

Sylvester Stallone has landed the leading role in Summit Entertainment’s The Tomb, Variety reports.

The film, formerly set to arrive from director Antoine Fuqua, tells the story of an expert prison designer who has to escape from the very structure that he helped create.

Earlier this year, Arnold Schwarzenegger circled the project and, last year, Bruce Willis was interested in the leading role. Oddly enough, all three actors are currently shooting The Expendables 2.

With Fuqua heading off to direct the Eminem boxing drama Southpaw, a search is now on for a new director for The Tomb.
