The best worst movie cast ever
Since The Expendables, the 2010 film that brought together a smorgasbord of action heroes – including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and Bruce Willis – brought home $200m (£125m) at the box office, it was only a matter of time before the ludicrous mix of testosterone and brawn was recreated elsewhere (incidentally, The Expendables 2 is already in post-production). So news arrives of The Tomb, an upcoming flick with – if it's possible – an even more ridiculous cast.
Gone is the time when one fearless action star saving the world was enough. Now it seems that cinema-goers demand at least four of them to feel sufficiently entertained. For The Tomb, which starts filming later this month, Stallone receives top billing again, with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vinnie Jones and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson joining him for the prison-break drama.
But with four sets of bulging biceps, you also get four giant egos. It's a brave director who takes that on.
