Arnold Schwarzenegger to Star in Last Stand

by at . Comments

In the aftermath of a shocking scandal in which he did exactly the opposite, Arnold Schwarzenegger pulled out of all movie projects a few months ago.

All jokes and terrible intros aside, the former California Governor put his revamped movie career on hold in May. Now he's ready to ramp it back up.

According to Deadline, the 63-year-old actor and father of four five has reattached himself to an upcoming film, a Western called Last Stand.

"It's a property which a zillion directors immediately fell in love with: the good, the bad, the weird," a Lionsgate executive said of the forthcoming film.

Of Schwarzenegger's casting: "It's an old-fashioned Western specifically designed for a 63-year-old broken-down guy with a moral decision, whether Arnold decides to stand up for his town. We always needed an iconic figure for it."

Schwarzenegger was an enormously successful action (and sometimes comedic) actor before serving as Governor of California from 2003-2011.

On July 1, Maria Shriver officially filed for divorce after 25 years of marriage, in light of his teenage love child with Mildred Patricia Baena.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver are parents to four children of their own: Christopher, 13, Patrick, 17, Christina, 19, and Katherine, 21.

I find it exasperating that people here have to come at the guys neck. He messed up and while he never probably had to own up to it publicly if the money kept coming, he did own up which is more than be said for most men. Maybe he got to the point where he doesn't want to deny his child a relationship. I have sympathy for the feelings hurt in this situation but people need to realize that Kennedys are not American royalty.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, recent recipient of the Gross Baboon of the year Award, landed his next starriing role. No, he will not reprise Conan the Barbarian, ahem, look at the wardrobe. Instead, he is doing a western ala Clint Eastwood. "Go ahead, make my day, keep your clothes on," says IMW http://ow.ly/5CucQ

I agree with vickie. If its a great story they could have chosen a better actor. I don't see none of his movies since became governer n I still don't see them now.. they are wasting time n money on him.smh

In spite of it all life goes on. What Arnold did in his personal life will be judge only by God when he meets his maker. If he has a conscious,he will have to carry that huge mistake with him for the rest of his life.Recognize that it is what it is and move on.

Wonderful news, Schwarzenegger still has a lot of fans and he is entertaining to watch on the big screen.

Nope, they made a mistake. If it is a great story, couldn't they get a great actor. Arnold never could act, and the face lifted, old philanderer is not on the top of my list to go see.
