Jim Caviezel Enters The Tomb
He'll annoy Sly and Arnie...

Jim Caviezel Enters The Tomb

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.

RE: Go Sly!
I've come around on Caviezel. He's no special talent, but he's agreeable enough, and in the right role I think he can do well. I liked him in THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, anyway. I think with the right material he could be an excellent villain. Without it, he might seem boring and vacant. I'm curious to see how it turns out though, in either case. More

Walk This Way
Caviezel walked out ot The Tomb at the end of The Passion Of The Christ and now he just walks back into it. Clearly, resurrection isn't all its cracked up to be. More
