Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films has given the green light for a sequel to the 2013 Sylvester Stallone-led action thriller “Escape Plan” which grossed $137 million worldwide.
Stallone will reprise the role he played in the original, this time in a supporting capacity. A major Chinese component will be involved in the financing of the sequel, due to its predecessor’s huge success in the region. Miles Chapman will return to pen the script.
Randall Emmett, George Furla, Mark Canton and Zack Schiller will produce. Lionsgate Premiere will release domestically with pre-production to begin January 15th ahead of a March 15th shoot in Ohio and China.
