Sylvester Stallone’s Escape Plan 2 finds its director

8 February 2017 12:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There was something nostalgic about 2013 prison thriller Escape Plan and the sequel to the movie that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone has now found its director.

The original film’s plot centred on a high security prison as its inmates to try to break out. The film wasn’t exactly met with critical acclaim but that hasn’t stopped Efo from putting together a sequel.

We know that Stallone is on board and now according to The Tracking Board, action movie director Steven C. Miller (The Aggressions Scale, Marauders, Arsenal) has come on board to direct the movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger is not expected to appear.

The script is by the pen of Miles Chapman, the writer of the original Escape Plan. And apparently there will be some Chinese elements to the story per China distributor Leomus Pictures, with the aim of making it more accessible to its target audience. »

Sylvester Stallone's Escape Plan 2 locks down director Steven C. Miller

8 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

As a child, I grew up on the rough and tough action-oriented antics of super stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. Whether I was getting my ass to Mars, pondering how exactly to use the Three Seashells, or feeling dead tired, the muscles and mayhem that were part and parcel with Sly and Arnie flicks were always welcome in my family home. So naturally, when I found out about Escape Plan (2013), I... Read More »

Escape Plan 2 Is A Go With Director Steven C. Miller

8 February 2017 7:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off his crime drama ArsenalSteven C. Miller has signed on to direct Sylvester Stallone in Escape Plan 2.

At least, that’s according to The Tracking Board, who report that Miller will now supplant Mikael Håfström at the helm for a sequel designed to be a Chinese co-production with Leomus Pictures. Considering that a significant chunk of Escape Plan‘s $137 million haul came from overseas in 2013, news that the embryonic follow-up will cater to international audiences isn’t all that surprising. Little is known about the plot of Escape Plan 2 at the moment, but we fully expect the action-thriller to incorporate some Chinese story elements in order to resonant with the local audience. China continues to be a huge player in world cinema, and with experts claiming that the country will become the biggest film market on the planet in two-to-three years, a Hollywood B-movie appealing to international audiences »

Escape Plan 2 director named! Steven C. Miller will helm

8 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Escape Plan 2 director named as Steven C. Miller.

Steven C. Miller has been named as the Escape Plan 2 director. Miller is responsible for the recent Marauders and Arsenal (aka Southern Fury), and will direct Sylvester Stallone and maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger in the planned sequel, which is in active development.

The Tracking Board released the news that Miller has boarded the project, which will be Chinese co-production that will be distributed in China by Leomus Pictures. The first film, released back in 2014, grossed nearly $41 million over there so it is a lucrative market.

Here’s the plot of that original Escape Plan.

Tough and chiseled Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) knows how to infiltrate a prison — and bust out of one. His latest job leads to a double-cross, leaving him stuck in a high-tech facility with the worst that society has to offer. Luckily for Ray, he meets Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger »

Arnold Schwarzenegger to reunite with Stallone for Escape Plan 2

1 February 2017 11:37 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Arnold Schwarzenegger is in talks to reunite with Sylvester Stallone for a sequel to their 2013 hit Escape Plan.

Schwarzenegger is said to be in active negotiations for the film, which is once again to be scripted by Miles Chapman.

In the first film, escape artist Ray Breslin (Stallone) makes a living out of testing the security of prisons by going in and getting out. But when he finds himself betrayed and left for dead in an impossibly complex facility, he must team up with the mysterious Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to form… An Escape Plan.

According to the trade, Escape Plan 2 is expected to feature some Chinese story elements to deepen its local resonance. The film took well over $40 million dollars in China alone.

No news on director or start date as yet, but we’ll keep you informed.

Sylvester Stallone's 'Escape Plan 2' Set as China Co-Production

1 February 2017 12:38 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Escape Plan 2, the sequel to Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger's 2013 prison-break thriller, is heading east.

Beijing-based Leomus Pictures and Emmett/Furla/Oasis have partnered to co-finance and make the film as a China-u.S. co-production.

Stallone has signed on to reprise his role as a prison security specialist, but Schwarzenegger's return is still under discussion, a Leomus representative said. Miles Chapman, screenwriter on the first film, is back to script the sequel.

Given how the first film's release went, deepening the sequel's connection to China, the world's number-two film market, would appear a smart move. With Leomus handling local marketing and distribution, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger, A Career In Crisis: Why the ’80s Action Icon Can’t Mount a Comeback

26 January 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This can’t be what Arnold Schwarzenegger imagined 2017 to look like: Sure, there’s a reality star in the White House, the Chicago Cubs are World Series champions, and his arch-rival (/best celebrity friend), Sylvester Stallone, is a recent Academy Award nominee. Yet for the ex-governor of California, far more confounding is how he became an ex-celebrity.

Schwarzenegger spent his acting life amassing a domestic box office of more than $1.8 billion. That haul came from comedies, like “Twins” ($111 million); science fiction, like “Total Recall” ($119 million) and “Terminator 2” ($204 million); or — his bread and butter — action flicks a la “True Lies” ($146 million) and “Eraser” ($101 million). But one unfortunate connection for all of Schwarzenegger’s films grossing $100 million-plus: They were all made before the year 2000.

Since the dawn of the new millennium, Schwarzenegger’s name above the title has carried less weight at the box office, resulting in drastically lower figures. How he »
