As fans are learning, not only has Escape Plan 2 been finished, but even the third movie in the franchise has been shot. As of right now, there has been a trailer released for the upcoming sequel. Sylvester Stallone reprises his role. However,instead of Schwarzenegger reprising his role, a new role has been given to Dave Bautista. Sylvester Stallone has finished Escape Plan 2: Hades, and when he has shown it to the studio, they have liked it so much that they have greenlit a third one which has already been shot. The plans for the film are rather interesting.
One interesting part of the plan is that Escape Plan 2: Hades is going straight to DVD and Blu-ray as opposed to getting a cinematic release. However, it is going to get a release in UK cinemas in July. One thing that is interesting is that a film like The Meg is going to get a theatrical release while the Escape Plan movies are planned for video. Another interesting aspect of this plan is that Dave Bautista is one of the more bankable stars along with Sylvester Stallone. It is not like they are box office poison.
Another interesting thing about the upcoming Escape Plan films is that there has barely been any talk about the film until recently. A trailer has been released for the film so that people can get a first look at what they can expect. It has been stated that this film is going to be a lot different from the first one which was a great action thriller reminiscent of a film from the mid to late nineties which would’ve been a great time for an Stallone/Schwarzenegger starring vehicle.
