Stallone! Schwarzenegger! THE TOMB!

Published at: Aug. 13, 2012, 12:05 p.m. CST by AICNStaff

Nordling here.

As a child of the 1980s, I don't think I'll ever get used to seeing Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger share the screen together.  When I was a teenager, I remember imagining all sorts of film scenarios that would bring these two together.  Opening myself for embarrassment here, but I remember having an idea for a World War II movie where Stallone was an Army sergeant in the European theater after D-Day and Schwarzenegger was a German officer in the same area, and the two were racing against time and against each other to capture alien artifacts that somehow landed in France that would turn the tide of the war.  Yeah, my mind works like that.

Anyway, I love that these two are in THE TOMB, which sounds a bit TANGO AND CASH, a bit LOCK UP - Stallone plays a man wrongly convicted of a crime who is thrown into a prison that he designed to be escape-proof.  Schwarzenegger plays a prisoner there who helps the other prisoners keep their sanity in this brutal environment, while Jim Caviezel is the vicious warden over them both.  We all know Caviezel can take a beating but with Vinnie Jones as his sidekick/guard, will we see a three-way fight between Jones, Schwarzenegger, and Stallone?  Okay, I'm hyped for THE TOMB now, even though Mikael Håfström doesn't have the best track record.

Alright, enough jibber-jabber.  Here's this first look at THE TOMB, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal:

THE TOMB also stars Vincent D'Onofrio, 50 Cent, Sam Neill, and Amy Ryan.  THE TOMB opens next year.

Nordling, out.  Follow me on Twitter!

    Interview excerpt

    by epitone

    STALLONE: 'Ey, I 'on' know much about this movie, all's I know is there's some kinda this tomb or somethin', I 'on' know, like a prison. And I gotta get outta there. SCHWARZENEGGER: The Tomb? Hey craft service girl! If you do not give me a blow job it will be you who is going to a tomb! Ha ha! Hey, hey, don't print that, I do not want to get in trouble!

    Stallones Wig

    by DVaderRIP

    Any evidence for this? Other than a general view that "men in their 60s don't have a full, thick, head of hair" I mean? Because I while I agree with the sentiment it's the first I'm hearing of this allegation. Ditto Arnies hair transplant.

    Stallone and Arnie in WWII

    by Deagol21

    Nordling, that's an awesome idea for a movie! I'd definitely pay to see that. Except, instead of an alien artifact, maybe it would be some kind of ancient religious artifact or a long lost weapon from an ancient culture, ala Raiders of the Lost Ark. You should write the screenplay for that. I'll even chip in a few ideas if you want. If it sells, I'd just ask for a small return, maybe 1-3% - and my name on the thing, of course. : )

    Nordlings WWII Idea

    by DVaderRIP

    Yes, great concept (although whether it would have been executed well is another question). Although I think Arnie should concentrate on getting With Wings As Eagles funded at this stage.

    Rambo + Commando = CONTRA !!!!!

    by Crosby Brito

    That was my mid 90's dream after watching rambo and Commando then playing for hours trying to kill some wierd looking aliens. I dont think its too late. The story would start off both being on opposite sides of the World. Both being soldiers/Agents with so much knowledge of undercover assasinations, and Political conspiracies and specialize in War. When everything else fails. Both are tracked by the Government for 1 final assignment with the world at stake. Both would die at the end.

    First post, that is. Like, ever. What took me. I never even heard of this movie, but what the hell. These are smart guys, Stallone and Schwarzenegger, if they decided to get together with substantial screen time on something, likely has some merit to it. Looks better than Expendables 2.

    by Norman Colson

    U know what i noticed most of arnie's movies, he never has a beard of any kind? WTF? I dig the goatee, he looks like a badass... Also Sandra bullock. damn she was so damn hot but cute in that movie. i mean her character had this cute personality, like guilible but innocent but so damn hot at the same time. Nice ass too... Fucking jesse james is an idiot. you left her for who with herpes? lol.

  • In all the best ways. How many fun films like this get made anymore, especially with top-tier talent? I remember a time when films like this were just pouring out of Hollywood - original, straightforward stories, not remakes, with no expectations of anything other than a solid good time, and super-charismatic talent and writers that were obviously having fun with what they were doing. Hope they can present this with the same type of vibe, as opposed to the dour, desaturated nu-metal edge of Expendables 2 (which is the only thing about it that doesn't appeal to me). It makes so much of Hollywood's leading-man output of today look uptight and timid in comparison.

  • Aug. 13, 2012, 1:06 p.m. CST

    @brito- Now that could be fun...

    by ThulsaBoom

    ...maybe some flashbacking to the '80's Contra missions, out of retirement, and taking their show to Africa to break up some dictatorship under the radar, or the like. Not unlike every Arnold/Stallone idea thrown around these days, but nostalgically connected to iconography that originally tipped it's hat to the kind of films these guys specialized in. They just need some really talented people behind the cameras for at least one of these projects. Someone who can bring some revisionist, 'Unforgiven,' or even 'Shoot 'Em Up'-like elements to their legacy, without sacrificing what made them fun in the first place. Tall order. I always dreamed of QT getting a hold of Arnold, but after canning his original Inglorious Basterds idea, that's probably the kind of backtracking we shouldn't expect from Tarantino.

  • Either way, glad to have Arnold back in filmmaking. He makes Hollywood better.

    1990

    by WavingFlagsInSpace

    Does anyone born in the last 22 years give a rat's ass about these two pensioners? Weighing in, at a combined weight of 131 years, are the heavily mascara-ed and powdered champions of the naff 80s Homoerotic Action Movie. Is it just me? Seriously, I just don't get it. Who pays to see these atrocious actors (and they are, save Sly in 'Copland', atrocious) churn out turgid dialogue whilst using painfully obvious stunt doubles (I'm looking at you, Jim Cameron and 'True Lies', you know the scene, when Ahnuld is, though clearly isn't, running through the snow to escape). Why would you part with your hard-earned tango-and to watch (what will be) drivel played out by two men who really don't need the work (it's only their vanity that does)? Why not support a real movie, with real actors in these financially decrepid times? Oh fuck it all. I don't know why I care but when you see other humans being fed eyeball shit by turds that refuse to be flushed, it just winds me up. Come on, Sly! You called your self expendables, fer chrissakes, doesn't that mean anything to you? Look beyond the military jargon and see the sickening irony!

  • ...we like our heroes crusty, and grizzled. I just hope the rest of, 'The Tomb,' holds up.

    Wolfenstein

    by thedarklinglord

    Why nobody ever jumped on the idea to make a Wolfenstein movie with Arnold positively baffles me. Yeah, video movies typically suck all sorts of ass, but Wolfenstein is enough of a blank slate - Nazis delving into the paranormal, looking for the ultimate power that'll let Hitler rule the world - that someone could do the base premise justice, or at least write a script that'd be interesting enough to hang 2 hours of glorious ass-kicking action and gleeful carnage fun on. It'd be a bit like Indiana Jones meets Commando. I'd plunk down 10 bucks for that shit.

    More of a joke than a cliche? These two actors are both - laughable and worn out. Held together by surgeons, steroids and a serious dollop of hubris... It stopped being anything more than a money-making exercise for men like this years ago...since the 80s/early 90s their films have been fainter and fainter echoes of long-past glories (glories with lashings of oiled muscles and intense looks at other chaps with oiled muscles, whilst waving their rifle/cigar/stun guns around. Their vanity taints their achievements. Not that they give a shit, of course...

    by WavingFlagsInSpace

    Kevred, I enjoyed it - and I mean 80s Action Cinema - at the time, in the way young kids tend to enjoy stuff that is loud, easy to understand, slightly naughty because of the violence and nudity. But by deliberately exploiting their ever-more-distant success, and mining what was, at best, derivative in the first place, these 'artists' sully their legacy, in a way. And they do it so shamelessly, too. So part of what irks me is that these guys are still peddling their shtick, ingloriously, to ever-dwindling audiences. To even get a movie greenlit they now have to get into bed with each other (metaphorically speaking). And when this shit gets given the go ahead, it comes at the price of, in some cases, other work. What do I enjoy? Movie-wise I would say the most 'entertaining' (buzz beforehand, crowds in the foyer chattering and expectant, cheers at lights down, cheers at certain lines or actions, cheers & applause at finale - these two films define the multiplex experience for me this year) films I have seen in 2012 at the cinema have been: The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, the most interesting (anticipation beforehand, breathlessness during and long conversations afterwards in the pub): Martha Marcy May Malene, Shame and Even the Rain. The most entertaining thing on TV? Mo Farah winning 5000 & 10000 metres gold! Amazing.

    Sorry for ranting...

    by WavingFlagsInSpace

    ...but the real kick in the teeth is this: Who are these films aimed at? If it is their fanbase from the 80s/90s then this sort of hack work is unforgivable in its rehashed laziness. If it is younger audiences, why condescend to them with such lazy and outmoded dreck. Or do they simply put stuff out on name alone, tapping and re-tapping into a vein that has almost collapsed due to being punctured by so many pricks. It's like watching sports pros who play one season too many...it's a crying shame to place their glories in the light of their overreaching addiction to the limelight and/or pay-cheque. Discretion is always the better part of valour.

  • I have a feeling that he would be much more convincing as an actor if we weren't so distracted by his iconic mispronunciations of the English language. Don't get me wrong, I love Arnold, I just really want to see him playing an Austrian or German IN WWII Germany, not speaking English at all - a real character piece for him, for once, instead of just another action flick. I know he can do it. I saw hints of something greater in him in a few of his performances - even his struggle against his programming in T-3 belies someone who CAN do better. Oh, he'd never be winning any Oscars - I'm not saying that - I just think he could play a real ROLE, not a walking repository for one-liners with a gun. He's reached that stage in his career where him being the strongest in the room full of bad-asses is no longer believable, and he's matured enough as an actor to actually pull of a real human character, with the proper direction of course. Own the older years - they just make you look more grizzled, more of a veteran - they don't make you look feeble or ancient if you do it right. I STILL wouldnt want to fight Arnold, even though he's got some 40 years on me. That jaw looks like it can still take some punishment. He's a big guy even in bone structure.

    by KillaKane

    The Oakinator needs to say this at some point in this film. And a minimum of twenty "Eyaauuh"s

  • Just sayin'. :) I have a question about the photo. Do prisoners usually have such snazzy outfits? @wavingflagsinspace It's odd that you say that because I don't give a shit about anyone born in the last 22 years. I guess life just works itself out like that. :D

  • Infants. Grow up. What, you think you just curl up and die in your 60's? Well, maybe you will, because you subsist on cheeseburgers and internet porn, but not people who take care of themselves and have good genes. I know of plenty of "old" people in their 60's who can kick the living crap out of you and everyone in your family. So what's the point in talking about how many times they've been around the sun? Age is relative. Being 65 for one man is an ENTIRELY different thing from being 65 for another. COmpare the average 65 year old American fatass to the average 75 year old Japanese or Chinese man - I guarantee you 9 times out of 10 the Easterner is going to be in better shape at 75 than a man at 65 would be in America. Why? Because people here are soft and spoiled and fat, don't walk anywhere, don't exercise, don't stay active, and just waste away and die. Lay off the whole concept of age. It means NOTHING. You'll get there, too....and you'll look a hell of a lot worse than these two when you get there. Guarantee it.

  • And I'm only in my 20's, by the way - even I can recognize that.

    wcolbert

    by WavingFlagsInSpace

    These two don't look like Arnold Scwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone - significant amounts of plastic surgery have seen to that. And there is something very special about being young - even GBShaw felt it was too special to be wasted on the young, BUT there's something very embarrassing and painful about pensioners pretending to be that which they are not due to nips'n'tucks at the surgeons, stunt doubles and long breaks between takes. Or it can be hilariously funny if its ironic. These two aren't being ironic.

  • Give the guy a break. He has had to be more careful about his workouts since his 40's when ( I believe) he had his first surgery. It's actually impressive that he was in as good of shape as he was by the late 90's/early 2000's, that considered. And for the record...there's nothing wrong with HGH. It's not a steroid. People need to understand that. Is it cheating nature a bit by taking your hormone levels back to what they were when you were in your 30's? Sure. But so the hell what? I'd take it too if I were 65. Other medical advances have enabled us as a species to live longer and stay in better shape longer - if we are ever to live to 150 or 200 as a species, we're going to HAVE to cheat nature. We've BEEN doing it for a long time now. In fact...in 30 or 40 years, I'd be surprised if I weren't taking at least small amounts of the stuff. Why should I not want to have the energy levels I used to when I'm 60+? The plain fact of the matter is, most people mocking Sly for getting some touch-ups would, if they had the money and were older, do the exact same thing. Why NOT, is the question. We have the technology to live longer and stay younger. And for the record...just because a guy is in his 60's does NOT mean he's dying his hair. Men in my family routinely keep their hair color into their 90's. Been that way for as long as we can go back. I'm not saying Arnold has or hasn't, but it's not always guaranteed greys when you hit 60. Meanwhile my step dad has had greys since 40. It depends on the person and their genes. ANd I don't think Arnold has had much face work done - he sure didnt look like it in his Expendables cameo.

  • Liked 1408 a lot so I reckon there's a 50/50 chance the direction is good. Given the fact that Sly and Schwas provide an additional 200% awesomeness each I recon we are in safe hands here.

    So who gets the climactic Big Bad kill in this movie?

    by Bill C.

    People got to know.

    Arnold looks awesome.

    by adeceasedfan

    I am 1000x more excited for this than EX2 and I am extraordinarily excited for that.

    These two look better here than they have in ages...

    by Turd_Is_Floating_Underneath_The_Gravy

    Arnold suits a beard, and the grey hair is much better than the ridiculous dye job he's been sporting for a while. He also looks like he's pumped up quite a bit in a very short space of time...understandable given his superior genetics.

    Arnold looks great!

    by KinjoAlcoholicNinja

    The grey hair is a good choice. He looks like an old badass now instead of an actor trying to fake his way back to youth. Way to embrace your age, Arnold! You will always be my hero.

    This movie sounds objectively awful, but damn if I don't want to see it for some reason. I don't even particularly like either of these actors.

    Plenty of bodybuilders

    by Hipshot

    In their sixties look great, and Arnold was the best of the best. He'll look great again...just never as great as he did in his 30s.

    This movie should have been CONTRA.

    by GibsonUSA Returns

    Doesn't even need aliens. Just a scene Sly and Arnold running down a hallway guns blazing with the game's Level 1 music playing.

    For that "Tomb'a" joke...

    ...YOU should go to prison!

    That's the cleanest prison ever!

    I have never spent time in the US penal system...

    by WeylandYutani

    Are they usually that clean? It looks like they have impeccable janitorial and laundry services – Stallone's shirt looks pressed and starched.

    Another crappy blockbuster. Who cares.......

    Meh, I'd rather Nordling's WW2 idea, to be honest.

    by Squilookle

    Maybe it's just because I'm a sucker for WW2. I'll say it's a genuine curiosity to see Arnie play an actual Austrian/German and leave it at that.

  • Aug. 14, 2012, 8:56 a.m. CST

    Nordling - WWII idea Rocks! I have a treatment already in mind

    by Metebelis3

    Nordling , seriously up for working on this with you!<p> Its perfect for these two actors, and I even have an angle that pitches Arnie's character as duty-bound officer with zero sympathy for the Nazis which ties into the final act. <p>Damnit I can see this movie in my head right now and its more awesome than it has any right to be! <p> In all seriousness, pm me here or let me know how to contact you directly.

  • "Schwarzenegger!" co-directed by Marty Scorsese and Baz Luhrmann. This big-budget oscar-bait extravaganza chronicles the rise to power of one lusty Hollywood action hero with a serious lack of boundaries who is shoe-horned into Golden State politics by mysterious backers only to publicly humiliate the one woman who stood by him for decades. You will believe that Leonardo DiCaprio is "Schwarzenegger!" Kristen Wiig as Maria Shriver.

    @ghost-of-chainsaw - Arnie had a beard in Kindergaten Cop

    by Banjohik7

    During the early scenes when he's lampooning his image...He has a few weeks growth...He must have had some surgery too around that time b/c he looks like a Plastic Werewolf those scenes.

    Is no-one else thinking FORTRESS at this point?

    by JIMBOCOP

    Also, Vin Diesel should be the only person escaping from futuristic prisons. That is all.

    Best Prison outfits ever.

    by BigTuna

  • The pose looks like a publicity shot but the washed out lighting is garbage. Unless that's the look they're going for, in which case... it's garbage.

  • Aug. 14, 2012, 8:49 p.m. CST

    Nordling "We know Caviezel can take a beating." Hah!

    by SID 8.0

    I'm intrigued about this one.
