Sylvester Stallone returns to Mansfield Reformatory with ‘Escape Plan 3’
|Sylvester Stallone brings 'Escape Plan 3' to Mansfield Reformatory|
If you follow Sylvester Stallone on Instagram, you’re likely caught up with all the shenanigans going on at Mansfield’s historic Ohio State Reformatory prison. That’s where Stallone and Dave Bautista, best known for his role as Drax in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and his WWE wrestling persona, are filming Escape Plan 3.
"For guys who think they've been on tough locations, grow up or throw up," Stallone says on his Instagram video while standing on a ledge at the mid-Ohio location. "This is a serious prison that you don't come back from."
But Stallone has come back to the Ohio State Reformatory. The actor shot a few scenes alongside Kurt Russell at the prison in the late 1980s for the action film Tango & Cash.
The new film is the third in a trilogy which started with 2013’s Escape Plan, starring Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bautista replaced Schwarzenegger in Escape Plan 2: Hades, which is due out next year.
The Ohio State Reformatory is best known as the exterior location of The Shawshank Redemption. Air Force One also shot at the former prison, as well as numerous music videos and paranormal reality shows and specials.
