Jesus Battling Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Jim Caviezel"Jesus Christ Himself Will Face Off Against Rambo And The Terminator In The Tomb,” blasts a Cinema Blend headline about the upcoming pairing of 1980s all-brawn, no-brain movie heroes Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. If only. Imagine Jesus battling an aged Rambo/Rocky and the former governor of California. What kinds of weapons would be used? Love and compassion? A-bombs and hand grenades? And who would come out on top? Think of the ideological possibilities.

Well, unfortunately, it turns out that Mikael Håfström's The Tomb in all likelihood won't be any more intellectually challenging or stimulating than, say, Cobra or Conan the Destroyer. In the actioner (info via JoBlo.com), Stallone and Schwarzenegger will play two inmates bent on escaping from a high-security prison (built by the wrongfully imprisoned Stallone himself) overseen by none other than The Passion of the Christ's Jim Caviezel (photo), whose movie career has stalled despite Terrence Malick's Best Picture Oscar nominee The Thin Red Line and Mel Gibson's aforementioned religious blockbuster. (Caviezel has blamed his career woes on an anti-Passion backlash.)

Prior to The Tomb, fans of hot movie action and big-gun-toting older men will surely squeal with delight watching Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, and Chuck Norris – in addition to The Last Song/The Hunger Games/AWOL's Liam Hemsworth lest things get a little too senior – doing their thing in Simon West's The Expendables 2. [Note: The article initially had Thor and Snow White and the Huntsman as two Liam Hemsworth movies, when those are actually vehicles for his brother, Chris Hemsworth.]
