Arnold Schwarzenegger is gearing up for a busy couple of years – in fact, seems he’s already made an early start on that to-do list.
The Oak has just completed his appearance in “The Expendables 2” and also wrapped western thriller “The Last Stand”, which marks his first starring role since leaving office, and already he’s being doused in coconut oil and tan lotion again. Gotta let the muscles cool first, guys!
As the former Governor of California tells The Arnold Fans, he’s got a few big months ahead of him – he’s doing that two-hander with Sly Stallone called “The Tomb”, which is revealed to be set on a ‘floating’ prison, and is also doing the new film from the Bandito brothers (“Act of Valour”). And of course, there’s another “Terminator” sometime in the future too. As Maria tells her friends, there’s no stopping Arnie.
“I had a terrific time after my work as governor to be asked as Stallone to be in Expendables 2, so I flew to Bulgaria and worked there for a few days and it was fantastic! They had Van Damme in the movie and Dolph Lundgren and Stallone and Chuck Norris– every action hero between the ages of 30 and 100. On the movie set they’re having the biggest shootouts, and we have a great time when you do that because they’re very funny guys and masters at what they’re doing.
From that movie I went on to do The Last Stand which was shot in New Mexico and we shot that from October to December. That was a terrific experience, and that movie’s going to come out a little less than a year from now. They’re working on editing now, and the visual effects.
The next movie I’m working on again with Sly is The Tomb which will be a prison movie. We are both caught in the most difficult prison to break out of, which is a huge ship out in the ocean, so you can’t escape. But of course, we figure it out! (audience laughs)
Then we’re going to do The Unknown Soldier which is going to be with the Bandito Brothers that did Act of Valor, the number one movie right now and is getting such notoriety because they shot if for 4 million dollars and it looks like 100 million dollar movie because they got military and shot real action stuff which makes the movie so big and very successful, great story and everything. Those directors are doing Unknown Soldier, we start shooting sometime in June. Hopefully by that time my shoulder will be OK so I can do the stunts, but I’m looking forward to all that.”
The site believes “Unknown Soldier” is the new title for a previously-announced Schwarzenegger vehicle, “Black Sands”.
And if that’s not enough, Danny DeVito mentioned yesterday the possibility of talking Schwarzenegger into a “Twins” sequel.
