After three films in the space of five years, Sylvester Stallone has ostensibly called time on The Expendables franchise. But just because Barney Ross is bound for an early retirement doesn’t necessarily mean that Stallone is ready to exit the action genre altogether, as he’s reportedly signed on for Escape Plan 3.
At least, that’s according to Deadline. Word is that Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films CEOs and co-founders Randall Emmett and George Furla have issued the go-ahead for a third film in the cult action series just as Escape Plan 2 begins to wrap up principal photography.
The sequel, directed by Steven C. Miller and tentatively titled Escape Plan 2: Hades, will see the return of Sylvester Stallone’s super-gruff inmate Ray Breslin. Despite rumors to the contrary, Arnold Schwarzenegger (Emil Rottmayer) isn’t involved in the prison sequel whatsoever, allowing the void to be filled by none other than Dave Bautista. »
