A sequel to Mikael Håfström’s Escape Plan, the 2013 prison/action flick starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, is currently in post-production.
In the follow up, titled Escape Plan 2: Hades, Stallone will reprise his role as security expert Ray Breslin, who uses his skills to test out the reliability of maximum security prisons. Unfortunately, Schwarzenegger (or his character) will not be turning.
Steven C. Miller (Marauders, Extraction) is taking over directing duties for Håfström. Miles Chapman (Road House 2: Last Call) is once again in charge of the screenplay.
Updates: Escape Plan 2 hasn’t even been released, but pre-production has already begun for Escape Plan 3: Devil’s Station. According to Variety, Sylvester Stallone and Dave Bautista will be joined by martial arts star, Max Zhang (SPL 2, Ip Man 3). For the franchise’s third outing, John Herzfeld (2 Days in the Valley) will be directing.
