Sam Neill Joins Schwarzenegger and Stallone in 'The Tomb'

Paging Dr. Grant. 

"Jurassic Park" star Sam Neill will play a prison doctor to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone's inmates in Summit Entertainment's "The Tomb," the studio said Monday. 

The Australian actor joins a cast that includes Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Amy Ryan ("Gone Baby Gone") Jim Caviezel ("The Passion of the Christ") and  Vincent D'Onofrio ("Men in Black"). 

Stallone is a security expert who is tasked with escaping from a high tech prison, while Schwarzenegger will play a complex inmate. The two musclemen previously teamed up in 2010's "The Expendables" and will reunite in this summer's sequel to the film. 

Neill will play a doctor in the prison who is sympathetic to Stallone. 

Production on the project is under way in New Orleans.  

Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström will direct the project. The producers are Atmosphere Entertainment's chairman Mark Canton, Randall Emmett, George Furla, Robbie Brenner and Kevin King-Templeton. The film was co-financed by Emmett-Furla Films and Summit Entertainment.
