Arnold Schwarzenegger talks a return to making movies

01.17.2011

Arnold Schwarzenegger is no longer the Governor of California. Let's hope this means two things: we can finally retire that awful "Governator" nickname and Arnold will be returning to acting sometime soon. The actor recently spoke with Austrian magazine Krone about his future plans and revealed that while he hasn't decided anything yet, he is currently reading three scripts that may serve as potential vehicles for a big return.

Said Arnold [this is Austrian translated to English using Google Translate]: "Currently I am reading three scripts! A topic on which I have dealt before the time as governor appeals to me most. A topic on which i have dealt before the time as governor appeals to me most. Since I was playing an older German officer who receives a war against the order to kill dozens of children. Since I was playing in children older German officer who receives a war against the order to kill dozens of. He does not and it brings new adventure and the risk of his life in security. He does not and it brings new adventure and the risk of his life in security. The theme is based on a true story. The theme is based on a true story.

The one project he references specifically is most likely WITH WINGS AS EAGLES, a script written by Randall Wallace that Schwarzenegger was attached to before he became the Governor. It was written specifically with Arnold in mind and the actor in Schwarzengger always kept the story close to his heart.

Arnold later admits that as he's gotten older, the days of him shooting people up and whupping ass are pretty much over and he's looking at a different caliber of film, using Clint Eastwood as a model (and not Sylvester Stallone). If you click here you can read the entire translated article and try to guess at what the other two scripts are.

With the news of Expendables 2 coming out I think its safe to assume that Arnie will most likely have a bigger part in that. It would be good for his comeback film to show the world that he can still kick ass. Then he can go off and make whatever films he wants, but I hope he goes the Stallone route and continues to do kick-ass action films. He's not too old yet! Better to get it in now and then move to Eastwood territory when you're over the hill.

YEA! Glad to hear Arnold is contimplating a comeback! I hope he doesn't give up the action field completely though, cause that's the genre I think he is the greatest at.

I am a lifelong fan of Arnie and this news obviously makes me ecstatic. I knew he'd be back. He should play a Na'vi war general in Avatar 2: Jake Sully Day.

I'm all keen for a Schwarzenegger return, but the man has been out of the industry for so long, and obviously embroiled in politics during that time. How will this affect his post-governmental film selections I wonder? Hopefully he follows Stallone's recent example or Gran Torino style Eastwood...

A Red Heat followup would be nice.

Bear with me.

The character he played was a very devoted Communist. I wonder what someone like that, who only knew to serve the party, would do after the wall fell.

Arnie doesn't need to do a crazy shoot em up like Stallone, just having him play an ex merc or detective with decent action is enough for me. The guys a legend already.

Tom Arnold did an interview on Stern a few weeks back and mentioned him and Arnold were going to do a movie together, with very similar characters to that of the True Lies characters. Hopefully that means Arnold isn't completely done with action.

Hopefully it just means wishful thinking by Tom Arnold and Ahnold's inevitable return to action won't include him.

@ wolverinerpt.. where did you hear about that concept of Arnolds team vs Slys?? is that a legit rumor or something you thought up?? either way, that is a fuckin awesome idea.. I could see Arnolds team consisting of guys like Jesse Ventura, Bill Duke, Michael Biehn, Robert Patrick, Danny Devito( haha,just joking)..

It's likely that Expendables 2 is one of the scripts that Arnold is looking at. Rumour has it that Bruce will be the villain and that he'll set Arnold and Sly against each other.

Finally...

I have waited for years for Arnold to do Wings...maybe now it'll finally come to frutition. Like I said last week when it was announced CF would be taking the lead in the Total Recall-remake. I hope he makes a cameo. Also, hopefully this will fast track Expendables 2. I love the concept of Arnold's team vs. Sly's.

Terminator 5. I think he would have the energy and motivation to do at least one more and to give the franchise a fitting ending.

I'm all about Arnie's return to the big screen. If only he'd bring Jessie the Body along w/ him. That quote made my eyes and brain hurt, Mike.
