Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone 'bump' into each other in hospital beds

Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone 'bump' into each other in hospital beds
Published: 09 February 2012 (871 Views)
Veteran action movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone have been pictured together after 'coincidentally' attending hospital at the same time for treatment for stunt-related injuries.

The former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted the picture on his Whosay account page just as it was announced the 80s favourites were going to star in another movie together called The Tomb.

Arnold said: 'After all the action, stunts and physical abuse shooting The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, it was time for a little tune up on my shoulder.

'Look who was coincidentally waiting in line behind me for his shoulder surgery.

'Now we're ready for another round of great times and action when we shoot The Tomb.'

With Arnold now 64 and Sylvester, 65, younger many will wonder whether they should be leaving the action genre to younger actors more suited to the physical rigours of shooting.

And sceptics will surely wonder whether the coincidence is just a bit too good to be true, given they have a couple of movies to promote.

The fact Sly seemed to have a syringe sticking out of his neck also suggested it may have been a spoof.

Arnold and Sly were massive rivals in the 80s, and continually tussled to be Hollywood's biggest action star.

And while the Rambo and Rocky franchises were hugely lucrative, The former seemed to edge it due to the massive box office success of the likes of Terminator 2, Total Recall and Kindergarten Cop.

Nowadays however the pair seem to be fast friends, and will be teaming up for the third time in recent years in The Tomb.

Arnold had a cameo in 2010's The Expendables, he has an extended part in the upcoming sequel.

In their latest project Stallone will play a man who designs an inescapable high-tech prison, who becomes a prisoner after being double-crossed.

Luckily he will be helped in his quest to escape with the help of a friendly fellow inmate played by Schwarzenegger.

The Austrian Oak is just finishing filming on The Last Stand, which is his first foray into the world of westerns.
