The director and star of the 2003 action film Tears of the Sun could be working together on a new prison escape drama. Deadline New York is reporting that Bruce Willis and director Antoine Fuqua are both in talks for a new film project The Tomb for Summit Entertainment.

The film was written by Miles Chapman and Jason D. Keller, which centers on the character Willis would play, Ray Breslin, a prison security expert who finds himself framed and sent to a prison he helped design that's nearly impossible to escape. He tries to escape the prison to find the man responsible for locking him up.

It was said that Summit is looking to fast-track the film, with production to start as early as this fall.
