D’Onofrio, 50 Cent enter ‘The Tomb’

Amy Ryan, Vinnie Jones also join Summit actioner

After working together on Lionsgate’s crime pic “Fire With Fire,” Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones and 50 Cent will reunite on Summit’s action-thriller “The Tomb,” which has also cast Oscar nominee Amy Ryan as its female lead.

Mikael Hafstrom is directing the film, which stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as Jim Caviezel.

Stallone plays an expert on structural security who is framed and put in a high-security prison of his own design. He must put his skills to the test to find out who put him there.

Ryan will play Stallone’s business partner and potential love interest. D’Onofrio is in talks to play the deputy director of the Prisons Bureau who convinces Stallone to take one last job before he retires. Jones will play a ruthless guard with no moral compass who enjoys making life difficult for the protag.

$70 million pic is being co-financed by worldwide rights holder Summit and Emmett/Furla Films, which produced “Fire With Fire.” Randall Emmett and George Furla are producing with Mark Canton, Robbie Brenner and Kevin King-Templeton. Miles Chapman wrote the script, with Jason Keller providing a rewrite and Chapman doing subsequent revisions.

Gersh-repped Ryan, who recently starred in “Win Win,” will soon be seen opposite Guy Pearce in Drake Doremus’ next film.

Since leaving “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” D”Onofrio has channeled his inner multi-hyphenate. He recently directed the horror musical “Don’t Go in the Woods” and he’s writing, producing and co-starring in an indie adaptation of Eric Bogosian’s debut novel “Mall.” Thesp will next be seen opposite Ethan Hawke in Scott Derrickson’s “Sinister,” which Summit is distributing.

Jones recently appeared alongside D’Onofrio in Jonathan Hensleigh’s “Kill the Irishman.”

50 Cent has become a go-to thesp for Emmett/Furla, as he also appears in the company’s “Setup” with Bruce Willis, “Freelancers” with Robert De Niro and “The Frozen Ground” with Nicolas Cage.

D’Onofrio is repped by UTA and The Collective, while APA and Elevate Entertainment rep Jones. 50 Cent is repped by CAA and attorney Aron Baumel.
