The baffling nature behind actor Sylvester Stallone’s departure from franchises like Rambo and The Expendables is still something of a mystery. In the meantime, it’s become clearer and clearer that he’s ready to devote his time to the current potential now thriving in the upcoming sequel to Mikael Hafstrom’s Escape Plan which currently has Extraction helmer Steven C. Miller directing.
Thus, follow Stallone on social media enough and you might be keen on any number of update which have so far included a teeny bit of teaser footage from the movie featuring Stallone and actor Dave Bautista, as well as shots at a robot like fixture on the set emulating what appears to be some form of A.I.. Actress Jamie Bell and reprising actor Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson also star in the film as do The Philly Kid star Wes Chatham and Ip Man 2 co-star Huang Xiaoming for its forthcoming release with a script by Miles Chapman.
The film will likely bow next year as it wraps this week and on that note, Deadline
now has it on good terms that a third is already being planned – something that Stallone hinted at once or twice in previous weeks. E/F/O Films and Leomus are backing the film with Miller directing and Chapman scripting. Producing are Randall Emmett, George Furla, Mark Canton and Zack Schiller with Ted Fox, Mark Stewart, Barry Brooker, and Stan Wertlieb executive producing.
Lionsgate Premiere will present the sequel in the U.S. as it will for number three with Leomus Pictures co-producing and distributing in China, thus granting Stallone an otherwise new property to thrive on, Expendable or not.
