Previously titled The Tomb, Escape Plan is an action/thriller that promises to be a big hit amongst audiences when it lands this October, with two of the biggest names in the genre leading the cast.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone take centre stage together for the first time, having previously worked together on Stallone’s The Expendables and its sequel.
With just a few months separating us from its arrival, Summit have released the first poster over on Yahoo Movies.
Ray Breslin, the world’s foremost authority on structural security, agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called “The Tomb.” But when he is wrongly imprisoned, he must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built.
Starring alongside the leading duo will be Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Neill, Faran Tahir, Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson, Amy Ryan, and Vinnie Jones.
Mikael Håfström (1408, Derailed) is behind the camera, directing from a script co-written by Miles Chapman and Arnell Jesko.
This first poster really does give a sense of the prison’s high-tech nature, and I’m looking forward to seeing the full visuals when the first trailer hits.
Escape Plan will be released in the US on October 18th. No word yet on a UK release date, but I’d hazard a guess and say it should be landing in October as well. I have a feeling that Escape Plan is going to be this year’s Taken / Taken 2.
