A sequel to Mikael Håfström’s Escape Plan, the 2013 prison/action flick starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, is currently in 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.
Escape Plan 2: Hades co-stars Dave Bautista (Kickboxer: Vengeance), Jaime King, Jesse Metcalfe, Wes Chatham and 50 Cent.
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: According to AFS, Huang Xiaoming (Ip Man 2, League of Gods, The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom) has joined the cast. Also, an Escape Plan 3 (via Deadline) is in development. Miller and Chapman will be back as director and writer, respectively. No further details are available.
