Jesus joins Sly and Arnie in THE TOMB!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Our resident Slystalker Supreme, ABKing, sent us a heads up about the new real-deal team-up of Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger THE TOMB that's pretty cool.

Jim Caviezel is now signed to play the warden, according to producer Mark Canton, who announced the deal being locked on the Matthew Aaron Show:

 

 

Mikael Hafstrom directs this prison-set thriller about the man who designs prisons to be escapeproof finding himself wrongly imprisoned in one of his toughest installations.

In the above interview, Canton says Arnold and Sly will have real screentime, with Arnie being much more than a cameo. In fact, he brings up HEAT, obviously drawing parallels between Arnold and Sly and Pacino and De Niro chewing the scenery together.

Caviezel is a great, underused actor. I'm actually a really big fan of Frequency and wonder why he never quite broke through the way people like Colin Farrell did. Having not read the script I can't tell if The Warden is going to be a heavy or not, but Caviezel can really play either archetype well, so I'm not worried either way.

What do you folks think?

    Caviezel is awesome! He'll always be my perfect Clark Kent/Superman.

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Outside of Christopher Reeves of course. But I really wish someone like Frank Darabont had made a proper Superman film ten years ago with Jim Caviezel. No joke, I remember distinctly sitting in the theater opening day in 1998 for The Thin Red Line and thinking "this guy is possitively ethereal, he should play Jesus... and Superman!" - Well at least he got to do Christ.

    Patrick McGoogan as the warden!

    by chubasqueiro

    We all know he was the definitive warden in that Siegel/Eastwood film about Alcatraz; plus as an ex-prisoner would give some serious shit to both Arnie and Sly... Unfortunately he´s dead. And I´m drunk posting...again... P.S:Caviezel´s Prisoner sucked big time...just saying...

    Caviezel in Person of Interest

    by Fremen

    Is damn fine casting. Along with Michael Emerson as Harold Finch, and Taraji Henson as the female cop. That show is one of my new must see tv shows of the past few months.

  • Even though Passions raked in a ton of dough. He should be much more prolific. He is a fine actor.

  • It's like if Batman were two guys, and neither of them dressed like a bat.

  • Feb. 20, 2012, 3:28 a.m. CST

    Caviezel is a solid actor but...

    by sic_b_oy

    he is a devout catholic and puts his faith before his work. There's a lot of stuff he won't do on screen now because of his strong beliefs. I figure that's why he has a had time getting roles. Either producers/directors don't wanna have to deal with that or he passes on a lot of scripts because of the content. Maybe he should just play Jesus in every movie.

    by schreck

    ..then Arnie & Sly will have less screen time together than in The Expendables. I'm not thrilled to hear Arnold has "more than a cameo". I was under the impression the two were flat out co-starring in this but now it sounds like that might not be the case. "Boy that coffee really hit the spot! Nice talking to you, see you again briefly at the end of the movie!"

    Hollywood is bigoted against Christians/Christian movies

    by BoyNamedSue

    Hollywood can make movies about orgies, chainsaw massacres, and all kinds of despicable stuff....but they'll put out all the stops to talk about what a truly reprehensible film The Passion was without even seeing it (and this includes people like Tom Hanks, who were quoted in interviews). It was such a beautiful film.....and notice what little, if any, attention it got at the Oscars the following year. Mel Gibson warned Caviziel that playing Jesus would cost him work. No one can know for sure if Gibson was correct, but he at least deserved an Oscar nomination!

  • They are both actors who filter every role offered to them through their own onboard religion filter, which sometimes has some weird rules as to what they deem appropriate and what isn't. For example, McDonough seems quite happy to play a violent killer, but refuses to kiss a woman on screen, let alone do even mild, non nudity requiring, sex scenes, or to allow body doubles to be used to make it appear like his characters did. And that's just one example. Apparently there are many. Both actors allegedly have a long list of personal won'ts that either have to be written around or outright avoided if they are cast in a role. And while that is their choice, it also often makes them harder to work with than the next equally talented actor on the casting list, so, there's your answer really. Basically, their careers have been limited somewhat by demons of their own making.

  • DMT molecules are in every living thing. DMT is the thing that connects consciousness in this matter universe to the other universe that contains no matter. All you really need to know in life is that you should be empathic towards others and convey good thoughts and emotions. This is stage 1 of 7 stages. Stage 2 is the the light tunnel. Stage 3 is heaven where you can externalize a reality you find optimal. Then if you want to advance to the other stages you will have a soul review. This is all well documented in your textbooks. Now turn to page 31 of your textbooks. In this chapter we'll discuss the penial gland and it's ability to allow the soul to enter and exit the body. Ok so this bullshit I just laid down is more well thought out than any world religion and makes more sense. What's really sad is that nobody who embraces religion can even communicate why they embrace it. You should be able to tell me in a few sentences something that convinces me of the validity of your beliefs

  • I realize the show is going for a "Batman without any costumes" kind of grit, but even the Christopher Nolan films had SOME levity to them at times. Even on the rare occasions when the writers actually do give Caviezel something of a dry quip, he totally sucks the humor out of it. It's a promising show, love Michael Emmerson and Taraji P. Henson, but Caviezel desperately needs a personality transplant.

  • The way it was portrayed in its media almost like it was another 6th Sense, and it was back at a time when I was much more frequently going to theater, so even not being a big Jennifer Lopez fan, I went for (at least only matinee, thank god). Genuinely one of the worst, just most stupid movies I've ever seen. I wanted to firebomb that theater it was such a bad fucking movie. And, while I don't remember now specifically what it was, but I recall thinking the big twist ending was so ridiculously obvious VERY early on. I remember thinking "well that can't possibly be the answer, because that's immediately the easiest thing you'd guess"

    When I opened the article I figured the talkback would be frothing at the teeth and calling him a pussy or some shit, but it seems hes universally liked. I'm not a huge fan (only saw Frequency and the Passion, as well as an ep of the crappy Prisoner show) but he's solid and I wouldn't mind seeing him get some more roles. I guess we'll have to wait for him to get some more high-profile roles before everyone can start saying "Man I'm sick of this guy"!! a la Jeremy Renner.

    design an escape-proof prison

    by Bass Ackwards

    Is this really as complicated as it sounds? You make a prison, and if you have any doors you put guards and alarms and cameras there. Seems like problem solved. Do people escape prisons because there's a flaw in the design? *How Arnie, look, they didn't finish the wall over there, we can walk right out!* Seems like escaping prison involves being either vicious (killing the guards, taking hostages) or being crafty and smart and taking advantage of an opportunity. I suppose the exceptions would be those cases where prisoners dug their way out, but still, the concept of an "escape-proof" prison seems a little silly to me.

    About McDonough

    by doopey

    The difference between sex and violence for the actor is that with action/violence you're dealing with props and makeup and stunts. You aren't really committing violence. For sex scenes you really are kissing another woman and/or getting naked with another woman. Now, I know people are going to jump all over this, but if you're married and your religious values tell you to take that super seriously, you are not going to compromise that even for an acting gig. I respect McDonough for sticking with his convictions.

    When I saw the title 'The Tomb' I thought it was Repairman Jack…

    by Vlad the Inhaler

    … finally making it to the big screen. Shit. Just another Schwarzenegger/Stallone testosterone fest. Hopefully there'll be some good gunplay. <p> Regarding Mr. Jim Caviezel: Ever since 'The Passion' to mixed critical hosannas and horror – and controversial box office – I figured he was going to have a hard time getting work. <p> Does anyone remember Jay Robinson's brilliantly creepy turn as Caligula in 'The Robe'? He was so bloody good in it; it was such an attention-getting performance at the beginning of a star-in-the-budding's career. Sadly, for many years – if ever – this terrific character actor was unable to remove the "ick factor" that served that particular film so well, but otherwise blunted his career. <p> Caviezel was spectacularly good in 'The Passion' that he actually became the personification of Jesus for a certain class of lower-IQ filmgoer. Those folks, and there's a lot of them – don't want to see him and anything else. Other people who were *appalled* by the movie don't necessarily want to see any more of him, either. Once again, there's a lot of those people also. <p> Much like Robinson, Caviezel has been plying his trade on TV. I don't want to say "reduced to being on TV," because the state-of-the-art is pretty high right now, and it's always a good place for character actors to practice their craft and pick up a paycheck. But it's an interesting case study: Two talented movie-stars-in-the-making get their breakout rolls in religious movies. One is the complete embodiment of Evil; the other of Pure Good. Both characterizations are fixed, more or less permanently, in the public eye, and both actors are stuck there for close to the balance of their careers.

  • ... where Bale is being lifted up by a crowd and he's cheering and so on. I don't buy it for a second. Somehow he's just incapable of playing joyful. His scenes as a rich playboy in Batman work because you know the character himself is faking it. Playing in the pool scene comes to mind.

Here's a hint: Gibson told him it would happen the second he got cast in "The Passion", and it wouldn't be because of pissing off scientologists. <p> <p>Finally, though, something comes to Caviezel. Sly is risking a whole damn lot about his film by casting an actor whom the "masters of the couch" hate, though... <p><p> Watch "Outlander", by the way.

    Most of the rulers of hollywood hate a person with morals like Caviezel

    by alienindisguise

    One that refuses to degrade himself for a buck. He gets respect in my book.

    HEAT!?!?!

    by Broken_Bad

    That comparison is fucking bullshit. Heat is one of the finest films ever created, and comparing sly and arnold to pacino and deniro is literally offensive. I'd like to knock that asshole's teeth out for his blasphemy. piece of uneducated shit. Rarely do i read something here that pisses me off, but oh man, what a bunch of bullshit.

    Unknown was another underrated movie!

    Jim Caviezel and Young Victoria justice..From nick's Victorious

    DeNiro & Pacino weren't on screen together

    by VMS

    Go watch HEAT again - they were never in the same shot until the last shot, an then only in silhouette. I'm sure they were on set together, but perhaps Mann felt the frame wasn't big enough to contain those 2 titans.

    Caviezel

    by Andy_Dufresne

    Caviezel is a really wooden actor....which sometimes is great. Person of interest is absolutely perfect for his super-serious, monotone, flat affect style. I really like the guy but I wouldn't consider him a great actor. He is great when a role calls for that cold-fish demeanor but I don't think I could ever imagine him excelling in something like a comedy.

    Caviezel as Travelin' Jack

    by amievil

    he may be getting too old now but as i was reading Black House i always saw the grown up Jack as Caviezel...and thought if they ever made a Talisman movie and then the sequel that he should of played Jack... and i always enjoyed Frequency...which is the version of him i think was stuck in my head for Jack...

    by Get_Me_An_18-Man_Fire_Team_In_12_Hours

    Ironic that his SPOILER "son" from The Count of Monte Cristo was cast as Supes. His wife may have made a decent Lois Lane, for that matter.

    Outlander

    by lv_426

    That was a fun Jim Caviezel movie that had a lot of heart. Much, much, much better than Predators too (I mention this only because both the original Predator and Outlander are sci-fi/action interpretations of Beowulf). Hell, I thought Outlander was a better Beowulf film than the one Zemekis made. Also, call me crazy but I think Caviezel would make an excellent John Connor in a Terminator future war film set in 2029, unlike McG's Terminator Salvation which went the (lame) route of having a 30-ish year old John Connor instead. He's already got the initials JC, both that of the character John Connor as well as the same as James Cameron.

  • Blasphemy! Come on guys. Call Konami, get Snyder or John Woo or Tarsem locked in, and make a kick ass Contra film! I'll even write the script for free. Contra is like THE MOVIE starring Arnold and Stallone, the movie that would make all us action and sci-fi junkies that grew up in the 80's go nuts. Contra, in 3D, that could really blow our balls off and fuck out our eyeballs like nothing else could. Whose with me?
