Arnold Schwarzenegger to play in Black Sands

10.28.2011

Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in BLACK SANDS, a romantic period drama set in Hawaii during the British occupation.

Hah, just kidding folks- it's an action film. Casting against type! This will be his next project after finishing up THE EXPENDABLES 2 and then shooting Kim Jee-Woon's THE LAST STAND. Schwarzenegger is fully back in movie making mode.

The former governor will play a loner who wages war against a ruthless weapons manufacturer and his private army in the Southwest. The tone is MAN ON FIRE meets HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER.

The script will be written by Skip Woods, who recently finished writing A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD for Fox.

BLACK SANDS is looking to start production in April 2012.

You'd have to assume his life story will make a pretty unusual biopic some day. Action! Politics! Intrigue! Ropey CGI crocodiles!

I think he's too old for Commando 2. Pick a thriller to do or be a villain or something.

Sounds fine... But I'd liket o see Arnold take on a few diferent roles, somethign different. He's got a great chance to try something way different instead fo just busting up chumps in action films. I love seeing actors try new genres. He has action and comedy down, could he pull off some drama?

No longer excited about any action movie until an R-rating is confirmed. Skip Woods is a hardcore guy, but the studio can easily neuter his work.

I'm sorry you can only get a boner if films are gratuitously gory and violent.
