    Escape Plan 2 (2018)

    Dave Bautista Joining Sylvester Stallone in 'Escape Plan 2'


    Steven C. Miller is directing the project, which will now be a China-U.S. co-production.
    Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista will team up with Sylvester Stallone for Escape Plan 2, the sequel to the 2013 prison-break thriller.

    Steven C. Miller, who's helmed action thrillers such as Marauders and Extraction, is directing the project, which will now be a China-U.S. co-production via Beijing-based Leomus Pictures and Emmett/Furla/Oasis. Mark Canton is also among the producers.

    The pairing of Bautista and Stallone is in line with having two high-wattage action stars fight against, then team up with, each other. In the 2013 movie, Stallone, playing a prison-security specialist who finds himself in a near-impenetrable facility, partnered up with his 1980s action rival Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Plot details are being kept in solitary confinement. The $20 million production is tunneling for a spring start in Atlanta.

    Bautista is a former WWE champion who segued into acting, slamming through to star status with a scene-stealing performance as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians. He reprises the role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which opens in May.

    He had a turn as a villain in James Bond movie Spectre and recently wrapped a role opposite Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049. He is currently shooting Avengers: Infinity War and will then segue to Hotel Artemis, a sci-fi thriller with Jodie Foster.

    Bautista is repped by Gersh, Meisner Entertainment Group and Mitchell Silberberg.

    Man, Bautista is on a role!

    The first didn't do to hot domestically, but internationally it did solid.

    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $25,135,965 18.3%
    + Foreign: $112,192,336 81.7%
    = Worldwide: $137,328,301
    They cut down the budget by 30 million from the previous film so it doesn't seem like too big of a risk, and with China's involvement that would seem to bring the risk even lower. The first film made 40 million in China.

    Gotta admit going into this. I was like do we really need a sequel. However gotta admit I liked the trailer and I'm hyped for Bautista being in this as well.
