Sylvester Stallone shares videos from the Escape Plan 3 set
We have not yet seen much for Escape Plan 2: Hades, directed by Steven C. Miller and starring Sylvester Stallone, Dave Bautista, Jaime King, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and Jesse Metcalfe, but work is already taking place on the third film, Escape Plan 3: Devil’s Station. Sylvester Stallone took to his Instagram account today and posted a couple of videos from the Escape Plan 3 set. He said:
“On location doing ESCAPE PLAN 3 at Mansfield prison, where they filmed The exterior shots for the film. Shawshank redemption but they never filmed the inside of this place. Trust me , doing hard time in here must have been HARD core Hell !! Hanging With my good buddy and costar @davebautista. The second one hasn’t come out yet… This is just to clarify things… Escape plan 2 has not come out yet, but we are working on the next installment.”

Escape Plan 3 was greenlit by Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films CEOs Randall Emmett and George Furla. Lionsgate Premiere will distribute the film domestically.
Deadline adds that Shadowhunters stars Harry Shum Jr., Tyler Jon Olson and Sergio Rizzuto have also joined the Escape Plan 3: Devil’s Station cast. The threequel is being directed by John Herzfeld from a script by Miles Chapman, who wrote the first two films.
In the third film, the daughter of a Hong Kong tech executive goes missing in what appears to be a routine ransom job. As Breslin (Stallone) and his crew delve deeper, they discover the culprit is the deranged son of one of their former foes, who also kidnapped Breslin’s love and is holding her inside the massive prison known as Devil’s Station.
The original Escape Plan followed one of the world’s foremost authorities on structural security, who agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called “The Tomb.” Deceived and wrongly imprisoned, Ray Breslin (Stallone) must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built.
Escape Plan was released by Summit Entertainment in 2013, and though it only grossed $25 million domestically, it took in $137 million worldwide with the bulk of the international gross coming from China.
