Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Back To Acting Again!

Something is rotten in the State of Denmark...

For those of you who have been waiting for Arnold to get the hell out of politics (and his pending divorce), today is a good day for news for you.

It has been made official that he is definitely going back into the world of the thespian arts, starting with a commitment to a movie called THE LAST STAND.

The new action flick will be written by Andrew Knauer (this is his first, according to IMDB), directed by Korean filmmaker Kim ji-Woon (The Good, the Bad, and the Weird), and will have the following plot:
Schwarzenegger will be starring as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for one of the most daring face offs in cinema history.

This will be Kim ji-Woon's first English language film, and considering  his past work on IMDB it sounds like this is going to be one great thrill ride. Can't wait to see Arnold's return! Make it a good one, Kim.
