Sylvester Stallone has joined with Summit and Emmett/Furla Films to enter The Tomb.

The film follows Ray Breslin, the world's foremost authority on structural security, specifically prisons. His skills are put to the test when he is framed and put in a high-security prison of his own design and must find the person who put him there.

The film has been trying to land a veteran action hero for a while, recruiting Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis, who are currently shooting The Expendables 2 with the action star.

Antoine Fuqua was formerly attached to direct, but with his departure from the project the studio has started a search for a new director.

No other details have been released.
