Escape Plan to Be a Trilogy

It looks like Escape Plan is becoming an unexpected franchise with Sylvester Stallone set to return for a third entry. More Sly is always a good thing so count me in.

According to Deadline “Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films CEOs and co-founders Randall Emmett and George Furla just greenlit the third film in the Escape Plan franchise.

The first, which starred Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, grossed $137 million WW in 2013, and the third film has been set just as Escape Plan 2 wraps this week. Stallone came back for the sequel and will return for the third installment. Miles Chapman wrote the first two films and is writing the third, with director Steven C. Miller back behind the camera. Emmett, Furla, Mark Canton and Zack Schiller all will return to produce. Ted Fox, Mark Stewart, Barry Brooker, and Stan Wertlieb will executive produce. Lionsgate Premiere will release domestically and Leomus Pictures will co-produce the film with EFO and will distribute in China.”

International Trailer for The Commuter

This is actually a better trailer than the first one… right up until the crappy CG finale which looks like the climax of the film too. So now we don’t need to bother watching it when it comes out. Plot: In the midst...
