ESCAPE PLAN 2 Adds Wes Chatham

Principal photography commenced in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday this week for the new sequel, Escape Plan 2 which currently has actor Sylvester Stallone reprising his role from the 2014 hit movie from director Mikael Hafstrom. Extraction and Marauders helmer Steven C. Miller is directing from a script by Miles Chapman and while plot details remain pending, casting did make other confirmations in the previous week in which Dave Bautista was also confirmed.

For this, we have news from Deadline as of several days ago that actor Wes Chatham has been cast in the film as well with an undisclosed role. Chatham’s recent credits include recently renewed SyFy series, The Expanse, and films such as Jason Connery’s MMA action drama, The Philly Kid, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s The Town That Dreaded Sundown, and Lionsgate’s two-part Mockingjay finale of The Hunger Games. Also starring are actress Jamie King and Escape Plan co-star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, following Bautista’s addition.

Emmett/Furla/Oasis is co-producing with China’s Leomus Pictures. Executive producing are Ted Fox, Mark Stewart, Barry Brooker and Stan Wertlieb with the Fyzz Facility’s own Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones.
