Collider, 4.4.12

Director Mikael Hafstrom just rounded out a great deal of his cast for the Arnold Schwarzenegger/Sylvester Stallone team-up actioner The Tomb. Stallone stars as a structural security expert who is framed and locked up in a high-security prison that he designed, and Schwarzenegger is onboard as one of the prison’s inmates and a potential ally to Stallone. Jim Caviezel also stars, and now Variety has added four more names to the cast: Amy Ryan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones and 50 Cent. Hit the jump for details concerning who these new additions to the cast will be playing.

Per Variety, Ryan is set as the female lead in the action pic. She’ll play “Stallone’s business partner and potential love interest.” Law & Order: Criminal Intent star D’Onofrio is in talks to play the deputy director of the Prisons Bureau. He convinces Stallone’s character to do one last job before he retires (natch) and Jones is set in a villainous role as a “ruthless guard with no moral compass who enjoys making life difficult for the protag.” I’m not exactly up on actor weights, but I’m fairly certain Stallone could take Jones easily. No details are given for 50 Cent’s role, but the rapper-turned-actor has had incredibly bad luck with Hollywood features, so here’s hoping he doesn’t curse this project as well.

ComingSoon, 4.4.12

Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, Amy Ryan and 50 Cent have joined the cast of director Mikael Håfström's The Tomb, Variety reports. They join the previously-attached Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Jim Caviezel.

The film follows Ray Breslin (Stallone) who is the world's foremost authority on structural security. He’s analyzed every high security prison and has gained a vast array of survival skills. But all Ray’s ingenuity and knowledge are about to be put to work in the most challenging test he's ever faced: escaping from the master prison of his own design.

D'Onofrio (Chronicle, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent") will play a deputy director, Jones (Snatch) a prison guard and Ryan (Win Win, "The Wire"), Breslin's business partner. There's no word yet on who 50 Cent (Get Rich or Die Tryin') will be playing.

Let me guess: Vincent will be in this for about 2 minutes....

Oh wow, the next project. I know Vincent will be always under some contract.

I certainly have confidence in Vincent's career decisions. So, though it may not be a large role, it obviously had something that intrigued him.

I'm sure it is a good role, but I don't think that it is possible for me to sit through a movie with Arnold and Sly. Especially after we finally got rid of Arnold playing governor here in CA, can't stand the man, but I will have to wait and see, and could change my mind.
