Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone Reunite in First Official Pic of 'The Tomb'

A first official still from "The Tomb (2014)" has made its round onto the web. Released via the Wall Street Journal, the photo shows action legends and as two aging prisoners. Arnie sports gray hair and mustache as he sits on a table, while Sly stands beside him.

Taking the lead protagonist role, Sly portrays the world's foremost authority on structural security named Ray Breslin. He's analyzed every high security prison and has gained a vast array of survival skills. But all Ray's ingenuity and knowledge are about to be put to work in the most challenging test he's ever faced: escaping from the master prison of his own design.

Sly once said that his character and Arnie's Emil Rottmayer were "just a couple of old war horses talking about the oddest subjects on the planet." He told ET Online, "I think in the beginning we were competitive - there's no question about it. A little alpha territorial. And then we realized it was good for our careers [to work together]."

Weighing in on his reunion with Sly, Arnold gushed, "The funny thing is we have tried, I think, our entire careers to always work together." He continued, "We have talked about it for three decades and it never happened. I think we tried maybe too hard... But now after the governorship, somehow this just fell into place."

"The Tomb" is filmed mostly in New Orleans with Mikael Hafstrom serving behind the lens. The actioner still hasn't got a U.S. release date. Before appearing together in this film, Arnie and Sly will co-star in "", which will hit the U.S. theaters this week on August 17.
