On the set of The Tomb

By Webmaster on June 7, 2012 / 1 min read

Entertainment Tonight recently posted a video from their set visit to The Tomb.

In this video, Stallone and Schwarzenegger talk about their characters in The Tomb; their work together on the action blockbuster The Expendables and its forthcoming sequel The Expendables 2; and the old-school machismo of action movie stars, which Sly calls, ‘male pattern badness’. Check out the first images from the set of this exciting new movie, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.

In The Tomb, which is due for release in 2013 (no pun intended), Sly plays the world’s foremost authority on structural security for high-security prisons who suddenly finds himself faced with escaping from the master prison of his own design.

‘The funny thing is we have tried, I think, our entire careers to always work together’, says Arnold. ‘We have talked about it for three decades and it never happened. I think we tried maybe too hard. … But now after the governorship, somehow this just fell into place.’

Stallone and Schwarzenegger filming The Tomb‘This genre unfortunately is becoming… let’s just say it’s fading away’, says Sly. ‘You have the superheroes today which are possessed with all extraordinary powers; they can blink and a fireball comes out of there. It’s great. And then you have a bunch of us which is just your basic male-pattern badness.’

The Tomb also stars Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Jim Caviezel, Amy Ryan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones and Sam Neill.

    Sly, it took a decade until you And Arnold collaborate in a movie. A lot of people were waiting very long time for this. The result must be amazing and the story of the movie sounds very interesting. Keep well and fit, so that we can see a lot more of this !

  • recuperation de donneesJune 13, 2012

    Stallone and Swarzy ? Incredible !

  • Vincent LemineurJune 13, 2012

    Without super power or CGI, the characters and movies you shared with us during your incredible career have brought more magic in people's life than any Superman, Spiderman, etc... You've always had this "magic power" to transmit passion, hope, determination to the teenager I was back in the 80's. Well, I have given out my extra large collection of posters, pictures and magazines since I became an adult, because I felt I didn't need them anymore: you are a part of who I am as you have helped me to grow up, to make choices, to consider life from new perspectives, and apply it throught music... You will always be in my heart, as a kind of friend, a bit of a virtual father, a model,... Thanks, dear Sly! Vince from little Belgium.

    Since Arnold and yourself are two of my three favorite actors to watch perform this will be as great as the day The Expendables came out! Too bad Mickey Rourke was not cast as well, then it would be complete (at least for me)I look forward to seeing it in the theaters as well as The Expendables 2. Keep them coming and God Bless.......

  • i love sir STALLONEJune 13, 2012

    hi .....sir stallone you are excellent extraordinary man are very excellent ........God save to you ...........

  • michaelJune 13, 2012

    it seems pretty good Mr.Stallone... alittle lock up mixed with some prison break... i LOVE movies where a hero is broken down and pushed to his limits but even when all odds are against them they never break away from their moral compass or let their spirits be consumed by the surrounding darkness... i have high hopes for this film Mr.Stallone! best regaurds from me an average guy trying to make it BIG!!!

  • DonJune 9, 2012

    Looking forward to this one. Director did a good job at making Arnold look a little different, love the grey.

  • KatieJune 9, 2012
