Arnold Schwarzenneger and Sylvester Stallone are well used to bumping into each other on big action movie sets but I’d say sharing a hospital room is probably a first for them.
Yesterday, Schwarzenegger tweeted (@schwarzenegger) a pic of his new hospital buddy and said “After all the action, stunts & physical abuse shooting The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, it was time for a little tune up on my shoulder. Look who was coincidentally waiting in line behind me for his shoulder surgery. Now we’re ready for another round of great times and action when we shoot The Tomb. #greattobeback”
I wonder if there was a 2 for 1 deal going on action men tune ups in Hollywood?
Whatever the reason for the same day operation, it looks like these guys are not going to let a little surgery stand in their way. Apparently, after the tune up, they will still have a lot of action left in them!
According to imdb, Stallone and Schwazenneger star in Mikael Hafstrom’s The Tomb It is yet unclear what role Schwarzenegger will be playing but Stallone will stars as Ray Breslin. A man “who is 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 film is scheduled for release in 2013.
However, you don’t have to wait until 2013 to see these action men share the screen, later this year you’ll be able to see them both (as well as Bruce Willis and a bunch of other 80s action men) in The Expendables 2.
