Schwarzenegger and Stallone’s ‘The Tomb’ Lines Up Its Cast

50 Cent, Amy Ryan, Vincent D'Onofrio
Paramount Pictures, Miramax Films, Buena Vista

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone getting together again (after ‘The Expendables’ films) would seem like a dream team for a movie twenty years ago, but only now do we get the two in leading roles playing against each other in Mikael Hafstrom’s ‘The Tomb.’ In what seems like a bid for the four quadrants, the film has added Amy Ryan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

This news comes from Variety, and Amy Ryan sticks out as the weirdest of the bunch. The Oscar nominee has done some prestige pictures post-’Gone Baby Gone’ and appeared on ‘The Office’ so it’s odd that her career has hit a point where she’s playing a love interest in an action movie. But work is work. Which could be said of Vincent D’Onofrio’s ethic at this point.

Vinnie Jones is Vinnie Jones, a big likeable lug, so he’s a fine addition to the cast. It’s Curtis Jackson, however,  that’s worrying as he has yet to give a credible performance in anything. The rapper has made a career of direct to video titles, so this is a step up. That the film is being directed by Hafstrom makes it seem like hackwork. Sure, many liked his version of Stephen King’s ’1408,’ but he also did ‘The Rite” and it’s one of the least successful exorcist movies ever made, which is saying something.
