Dave Bautista Joining Escape Plan 2

So Escape Plan 2 is officially a thing then with Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista teaming up with Sylvester Stallone for Escape Plan 2, the sequel to the 2013 prison-break thriller.

According to THR “Steven C. Miller, who’s helmed action thrillers such as Marauders and Extraction, is directing the project, which will now be a China-U.S. co-production via Beijing-based Leomus Pictures and Emmett/Furla/Oasis. Mark Canton is also among the producers.

The pairing of Bautista and Stallone is in line with having two high-wattage action stars fight against, then team up with, each other. In the 2013 movie, Stallone, playing a prison-security specialist who finds himself in a near-impenetrable facility, partnered up with his 1980s action rival Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Plot details are being kept in solitary confinement. The $20 million production is tunneling for a spring start in Atlanta.”

Bautista is a fine addition to the growing cast and Escape Plan 2 has some potential for awesomeness. 

UPDATE: Jaime King & Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson have also joined the ever growing cast of the movie.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.

  • Mucho Macho

    I’m a fan too. Saw him wrestle live a few times back in the day.
    “Evolution” was cool.
    I just hope this isnt some DTV cash-in trash.
    I actually think “Escape Plan” is underrated.
    I think some people didn’t give it much love because it wasn’t the orgies of shootouts they were expecting

  • I’m liking Bautista more & more. Spectre was his best to date.
