Schwarzenegger officially accepting offers for new acting roles

02.11.2011

Just last month, Arnold Schwarzenegger gave an interview to an Austrian magazine and revealed his was already reading three scripts and considering a return to acting. Looks like he wasn't just messing with us. Schwarzenegger tweeted yesterday that he's given the go-ahead to his agents at CAA to officially begin accepting offers for film roles.

Said Schwarzenegger, "Exciting news. My friends at CAA have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today."

One of the projects he's reportedly considering is WITH WINGS AS EAGLES, a script written by Randall Wallace (BRAVEHEART) that would star Arnold as a German officer during WWII who breaks rank and frees POWs.

I'm sure Tom Arnold doesn't want to hear anything about that though and will begin immediately resurrecting his 15-year campaign to convince us (and himself) that a TRUE LIES sequel is actually happening.

What kind of film would you like to see Schwarzenegger take? Should he go the Sylvester Stallone route and still try to kick ass? Should he play it more like Clint Eastwood and be a grizzled bad-ass? Or should he be like Robert De Niro and make a crappy comedy?

I don't care what he does. As long as it's action related with cheesy Arnold catchphrases, lol

I'm hopin for Expendables 3 with Arnie as the villain, #2 is already planned to have Bruce Willis as the baddie, so following that up with Arnie... that's a sandwich full of ass kicking.

That's what I like to hear...I'll see you at the party Arnie!

*hands you a box of only the finest stogies*

Like I said before though, I want 10,000 quality kills in his first return movie and at least a dozen cheesy one-liners.

This is so awesome, don't really care what he does, will just be great to see him in a lead role again.

I would have just said King Conan repeatedly with multiple exclamation marks but with the remake there's no hope of that :'(.

Its time to Pump you up! Arnold is back!

I am wicked happy that Schwarzenegger is going back into acting. At the same time, he shouldnt go the route of Stallone and try to do more sequels to his classics or direct movies. If Arnold went in the direction of Clint Eastwood and kept doing bad-ass roles, then that would be cool.
I know Arnold likes to do comedies every now and then...but if I were him I would be choosey with his roles.

Excellent news. I most definitely want to see Crusade and King Conan. Both likely won't happen though. The first one is just too touchy in today's world (booooo!) and the second one is very much away from the roles he's looking for (more mature, Eastwoodesque roles). Plus it's already getting a reboot. Of course, we need him to team up with Sly in The Expendables 2.

He's a one of a kind action star, so I'm thrilled he's coming back. Even if it's a toned down drama/action, it'll be great to see him in a new movie. But I hope he plays a bigger part in Expendables 2

kicking ass in the retirement home, maybe. i can see his next role now: either signing off on some really tough legislation, or cracking down on social security.

I don't know if the world is still in tune with his action style. Hopefully he can evolve with the times and not pull a Stallone; where he just makes nihilistic movies about wiping out southeast asia.

Finally! Even though Arnold's last few films were less than stellar, I'm glad to see he's returning to the big screen. He was missed.
