Sylvester Stallone Already Started Filming Escape Plan 3
Posted 2017/09/21 0 0
Production began earlier this week.
We have not yet seen much for Escape Plan 2: Hades, directed by Steven C. Miller and starring Sylvester Stallone, Dave Bautista, Jaime King, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and Jesse Metcalfe, but work is already taking place on the third film, Escape Plan 3: Devil’s Station. Stallone posted a video to his Instagram account showing himself and Bautista on location for Escape Plan 3, revealing his character’s cramped little cell in the threequel. The film is being shot in the real-life Mansfield prison, which was previously used as the exterior prison location for The Shawshank Redemption.
“On location doing ESCAPE PLAN 3 at Mansfield prison, where they filmed The exterior shots for the film. Shawshank redemption but they never filmed the inside of this place. Trust me , doing hard time in here must have been HARD core Hell !! Hanging With my good buddy and costar @davebautista. The second one hasn’t come out yet… This is just to clarify things… Escape plan 2 has not come out yet, but we are working on the next installment.”
Escape Plan didn’t do great business in America, but thanks to the international box office it ended up making a tidy profit. That’s why the film has led to a surprise franchise, with Stallone returning to front both the second and third entries. Schwarzenegger won’t be involved in either movie, but Stallone’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 costar Dave Bautista has signed on for both sequels. 50 Cent will also be reprising his role for both movies as Hush, the world’s (least convincing) computer nerd. The threequel is being directed by John Herzfeld from a script by Miles Chapman, who wrote the first two films.
In the third film, the daughter of a Hong Kong tech executive goes missing in what appears to be a routine ransom job. As Breslin (Stallone) and his crew delve deeper, they discover the culprit is the deranged son of one of their former foes, who also kidnapped Breslin’s love and is holding her inside the massive prison known as Devil’s Station.
