Casting details are currently scant, but Jones has confirmed he is seeking to join the pair in the movie.
And if he lands the role, former football ace Jones will be keeping a watchful eye on the veteran Rambo and Terminator stars.
The Snatch star tells The Sun, "I might have a film coming up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sly Stallone. Those boys are knocking on a bit (getting older). At least I'll be prepared if the action scenes get a bit too heavy for them."
From the sounds of it Jones would play a guard or possibly a snitch prisoner. He may have the role of Drake. The recent script review from Moviehole described the role of Drake as follows:
Prison Warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel) and his main guard Drake (I dunno why, but I kept seeing the Ronny Cox/Michael Ironside combo from “Total Recall” – not such a bad thing, no!?) are your typical ice-cold ’80s movie villains – hating on the ‘scum’ they have to cage. Oh, and Drake is said to be ‘Australian’ – think Vernon Wells! Shit, go get Vernon Wells, guys!
So what do you guys think? Would Vinnie Jones be a good addition? Thanks to gazza for the heads up!!
