Bruce Willis is in early talks to star in prison escape drama The Tomb, with Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) casing the scene to direct. Willis would play Ray Breslin, the world’s foremost authority on structural security. Seems like the kind of character that should be incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself, but Deadline has the solid details:
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.
Nailed it! It’s my hope that Breslin is put to the test, defies all the odds, cheats his own system, dodges burly black men with shivs, and finally arrives at the exit to discover the prison…is an island! It’s always the macro details you forget.
