Mikael Håfström‘s The Tomb attracted some attention for reuniting ’80s action stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, but the project’s collected quite an eclectic cast since its early days. After adding Jim Caviezel back in February, The Tomb has now also signed Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, 50 Cent, and Amy Ryan. The combination isn’t entirely random: D’Onofrio, Jones, and 50 Cent recently completed production on Lionsgate’s Fire with Fire, which like The Tomb produced by Emmett/Furla Films. I can’t explain Ryan’s presence, though. More after the jump.

A pre-April Fools’ day story that wasn’t actually a joke contained the announcement that Universal is developing Triplets as a sequel to Ivan Reitman‘s 1988 film Twins. The original comedy starred Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger as genetically-engineered brothers who learn of one anothers existence when they’re both adults.
Triplets doesn’t have a director at this point, or even a screenwriter, and the cast isn’t yet signed. But the idea is for DeVito and Schwarzenegger to return, with Eddie Murphy stepping in as a third long-lost brother.
Danny DeVito has spoken in general terms about doing a Twins sequel in the past, and now we’ve got some enthusiastic quotes from Schwarzenegger. He seems wildly confident about the prospects for the film. Read More »
Rumors have flown for the past year of a possible sequel to Twins, the 1988 comedy in which Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger starred as genetically engineered but not quite identical brothers. And now that second film is really happening: Universal and Montecito Picture Co. are developing a film that will follow Twins. But Twins 2 isn’t quite going to cut it; this film will be called Triplets. And if things work out the way the companies want, Eddie Murphy will be the third brother. Read More »

It just isn’t as difficult to pair ’80s action icons as it used to be. The Expendables blazed a new trail for guys like Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger to work in the same film, and the sequel is soon to expand that testosterone showcase.
Last month it started to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger would also join Sylvester Stallone in a prison film called The Tomb. (Which, appropriately enough, was almost a Bruce Willis film at one point.) Now the two actors are locked and Mikael Håfström (The Rite, 1408) is set to direct, with Summit ready to distribute.

About a year and a half ago, it seemed like Antoine Fuqua was set to direct Bruce Willis in the original action thriller The Tomb. In the time since, however, the project’s rotated through a couple of other well-known action-names. Fuqua and Willis dropped out of the project, and Willis’ The Expendables co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger flirted with taking the lead before another Expendables man, Sylvester Stallone, ultimately signed on.
Now it looks like Schwarzenegger may be back again, as news breaks that the former California governor has entered early talks to appear alongside Stallone in the film. Meanwhile, the project seems to have finally found a replacement for Fuqua in Mikael Håfström, who’s helmed such movies as The Rite and Derailed. More details after the jump.
