Jim Caviezel Enters The Tomb

He'll annoy Sly and Arnie...

Now that The Tomb is gearing up with Mikael Hafstrom directing, the power combo/hospital buddy duo of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger needed an adversary to fight against. Now it looks like they’ve found a bad guy in Jim Caviezel.

You may recall that the movie has been through a few casting hoops, but has now settled with Sly playing Ray Breslin, the world’s top authority on structural security and a man who designs prisons for a living. Things take a turn for the difficult when he’s framed for a crime and locked up in one of the facilities he helped make escape-proof. Now he has to go up against his own design, with the help of Schwarzenegger’s fellow inmate Church.

Producer Mark Canton went on the Matthew Aaron show for a chat (picked up by JoBlo) and revealed that Caviezel has signed on to play the warden of the prison, who will no doubt make plenty of trouble for our muscular heroes.

The Tomb should kick off shooting this year, ready for a release in 2013. Caviezel has been spending most of his recent time working on US TV drama Person Of Interest.
