Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Back, starting with Western flick ‘The Last Stand’Posted: July 12, 2011
Despite the recent personal problems in his life surrounding his affair with his housewife with whom he fathered a child, former governor of California, and movie legend, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is all set and ready to return back to world of acting. Arnie, now 63, will star in The Last Stand, playing the role of a sheriff of a small town who battles a Mexican Drug Cartel. The Last Stand, with an English-language directorial debut from Korean director, Jee-Woon Kim (The Good, The Bad, The Weird), will begin shooting in September. Although the Western scene isn’t really the type of thing Arnie usually gets himself into, I reckon it could have a good outcome.
Arnie is also in talks for numerous other movie releases, including the fifth installment of the Terminator franchise, amongst others – and despite what anyone says, whether he is too old, or too out of shape or whatever, I will always be happy to see Arnie in a Terminator movie and I am very much excited about the prospect of him starring in the 5th movie. There are also rumours that Arnie is in talks of doing a Predator remake and a True Lies 2, but there has been no recent news on the topic as of yet.
Either way, I’m happy to see Arnie back in the movie industry. He may be getting on a bit, but hey, isn’t everyone?
