Jail break thriller opens in UK cinemas on September 27
The first trailer for Escape Plan starring action legends Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger has been released. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.
The jail break thriller stars Sly as a structural security expert who gets framed for a crime he didn’t commit and sent to a high-tech prison that he designed himself. As he hatches a plan to bust out of the supposedly escape-proof facility, he enlists the help of Arnie’s character, a wise and soulful fellow inmate, and a third prisoner who’s a computer whiz played by 50 Cent.
The cast also includes Jim Caviezel as the prison’s formidable warden and Vinnie Jones as a corrupt guard. The film, formerly known as Exit Plan and The Tomb, was shot in Louisiana last spring (2012) by Swedish director Mikael Håfström (1408, The Rite).
Sly and Arnie have recently appeared together in ensemble action comedies The Expendables (2010) and The Expendables 2 (2012). They’ll both be back for the third film, which begins filming this August (2013) and could feature Mel Gibson as a villain.
Meanwhile, Escape Plan opens in UK cinemas on September 27 before getting a US release on October 18.
