With their last movies bombing at the box office, there was doubt Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger would go through with their plans to make a prison-break film called "The Tomb" together.
Fear not, fans of aging beefcake action heroes. "The Tomb" will land at a cineplex near you in September. Only now it's called "Escape Plan." Maybe the last title hit a little too close to home.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Stallone will play a brilliant -- no, really -- prison architect who has to break out of the world's toughest prison with Schwarzenegger. The film will also feature Jim Caviezel, 50 Cent, Sam Neill, and Vinnie Jones.
"Escape Plan" will hit theaters Sept. 13.
DAVID LETTERMAN ASKS LINDSAY LOHAN TOUGH QUESTIONS: David Letterman grilled Lindsay Lohan on Tuesday night. And she held up pretty well.
The troubled star appeared on CBS' "Late Show" on Tuesday.
"I was here early--so you do owe Paul," Lohan said, implying Letterman bet bandleader Paul Shaffer that she would be late, according to E! News.
After reading a few fake news stories, such as, "Lindsay Lohan was on the 'Today' show this morning. The appearance went well, only one camera is missing," Letterman asked, point-blank, "Yes or no, do you steal stuff?"
"Do you?" she fired back. "Do you steal your cups?"
"No, those are complimentary," he said.
When Letterman asked "shouldn't you be in rehab?" the actress said, "Do you not watch anything that goes on? May 2."
"We didn't discuss this in the pre-interview, just saying..." Lohan said, when Letterman asked what she was going to rehab for.
"To be honest," she said, "I'm the healthiest when I'm working, and the happiest. And I think this is an opportunity for me to focus on what I love in life. I don't think it's a bad thing. I think it's a blessing, not a curse."
Lohan deflects questions really well. She should be a politician. I mean, they steal too.
Asked whether she drinks too much, Lohan smirked and said, "We've discussed this in the past."
Letterman also asked whether pal Charlie Sheen, whom she met shooting "Scary Movie 5" and recently worked with on his television show "Anger Management," really loaned her money.
"That's something you'd have to ask Charlie," she said.
Lohan then took a look at the questions Letterman prepared for her.
"I thought you were going to be nice!" Lohan said, laughing, while perusing questions like whether she had any money saved and whether she ever asks herself, "Why always in trouble?"
"I don't know, I couldn't answer that," she said. "I'm a target, I've always been, and I've put myself in the past in situations where, you know, I take full responsibility for it. And it wasn't funny, and I was being immature and I was going through a phase. And I had a lot of family stuff going on and things in life.
"And you grow up, you mature -- and I've said that a million times, I know that. But what else am I supposed to say when it's a process of life? And I'm not trying to deny anything, any situation that I've been in."
Of course not.
As for the 90 days of so-called locked rehab she enters in a few weeks, Lohan said, "I've gone through a lot in life and I'm actually looking forward to taking time for me -- you can't make a joke of it, that's so mean!"
"Not even one or two?" Letterman asked.
"No, this is my show now!" she said. "I'm going to come back from rehab and take over your spot."
Letterman praised Lohan for being able to laugh at herself. He also said he never thought she'd come back to his show after all the jokes he's told over the years.
"You have enough spine, enough poise, enough sense of yourself to come out here and talk to me," Letterman said, causing her to tear up near the end of the interview.
ALEC BALDWIN MAY ENTER LATE NIGHT GAME: Alec Baldwin may get a late night talk show.
NBC is considering having Baldwin take over Carson Daly's 1:35 a.m. slot five nights a week, according to Deadline.com.
That's incredible. I mean ... Carson Daly is still alive?
Daly has apparently hosted "Last Call" for the past 12 years. And it seems that NBC thinks more sleep-deprived people would rather watch Alec Baldwin than Carson Daly.
Wow. Still alive ...
Anyway, the former "30 Rock" star currently hosts a podcast called "Here's the Thing," during which he visits the homes and dressing rooms and other celebrities.
NBC is shaking up its late night lineup, having Jimmy Fallon take over "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno next year. Reports say the network is considering moving Seth Meyers from "Saturday Night Live" to Fallon's "Late Night" show.
A source close to NBC disputed the Deadline.com report, according to the New York Post.
MTV CANCELS 'BUCKWILD': MTV has decided to cancel reality show "Buckwild" following Shain Gandee death by carbon monoxide poisoning,
A spokesman for MTV told TMZ, "Given Shain's tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him. Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on-air and privately."
Gandee was found dead April 1 in his vehicle, along with his uncle and a friend, while going off-roading, or "mudding," in West Virginia. The truck's tailpipe became submerged in mud, and fumes backed up into the truck's cab.
Production on the show was immediately suspended and the reality series -- which focused on mudding and partying -- was in the middle of shooting the second season.
Buckwild averaged more than 3 million viewers in its first season and was one of the highest-rated shows on MTV.
The show has encountered other issues since debuting in January. Cast member Salwa Amin was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and her cast mate Michael Burford was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
TMZ reported that four of the second season episodes were shot, but will not air. However, a special taped two months ago is expected to be shown.
MTV said this weekend it will show a "day of programming dedicated to Shain in which we will air the entire first season of 'Buckwild'."
MIRANDA KERR NO LONGER AN ANGEL: Miranda Kerr will no longer be a Victoria's Secret angel.
This is a dark day for America.
Citing multiple sources, Us Weekly reported that 30-year-old Kerr is being let go as a Victoria's Secret angel after her $1 million, three-year contract "was not renewed."
Sources told the website Kerr is being let go because she "has a difficult reputation" and is no longer a big seller.
This is an outrage. Thank goodness for the Internet, where pictures last forever.
The Australian model is married to actor Orlando Bloom, with whom she has a 2-year-old boy, Flynn. The source said Kerr no longer sells as well as other angels, like Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio.
"They can still use her for catalog, where she will get a day rate, but she doesn't have to be an angel to do that," the first source said.
Executives from Victoria's Secret wouldn't deny that the contract has not been renewed, but chief marketing officer Ed Razek told Us that he has already invited Kerr to walk in the 2013 show.
"We have no plans to stop working with her," he said.
