Summit Entertainment is in early talks with Bruce Willis to star in the prison escape drama The Tomb, with Antoine Fuqua circling to direct. Willis is in talks to play Ray Breslin, the world’s foremost authority on structural security. After analyzing every high security prison and learning a vast array of survival skills so he can design escape-proof prisons, his skills are put to the test. He’s framed and incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself. He needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars.
The script was written by Miles Chapman and rewritten by Jason Keller, and Robbie Brenner and Mark Canton are producing. The hope is to fast track the film.
