The Arnold Schwarzenegger Comeback Express continues chugging along. First came last week’s sneak peek at Expendables 2, which reunites the actor with fellow ’80s action icons (and Planet Hollywood investors) Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone for more male-menopausal buttkicking. And today marks the the first day of filming for Schwarzenegger’s first starring vehicle since he began his political career. Earlier this summer, it was announced that Schwarzenegger would star in The Last Stand, a western from director Jee-woon Kim (The Good, The Bad, The Weird). Somewhere along the way, the project accrued an intriguing amount of interesting supporting players: According to a press release from Lionsgate, the film will co-star Forest Whitaker, Luis Guzman, Johnny Freaking Knoxville, the essential Peter Stormare, the even-more-essential Harry Dean Stanton, and Zach “Matt Saracen” Gilford.

It’s hard to know what to expect of The Last Stand. Schwarzenegger is playing an Everyman small-town sheriff, which is not exactly the first thing you imagine when you imagine The Once and Future Terminator. Still, it’s definitely intriguing to know that the star will be surrounded by an impressive cast. The film is currently slated for a 2013 release.

    I was really disappointed with the cast but at least Forest Whitaker is now in it. There should have been more big stars joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in his comeback film. I hope Arnold will do more dramas from now on.

      “Do more dramas” as opposed to what…? Housekeepers?

      ba-dum-ching :-p

        Colt0410 on July 22, 2011 Personally, I think this class is awesome. I dance with a Tahitian group, and go to Hot Hula cseslas here in Hawai’i, and I still sweat a lot. Furthermore, there are a lot of Polynesians in my class, being that I live in Laie, and a lot of us are overweight. Some of the best Tahitian, hula, etc. dancers are overweight, but I think the aim of this class is to lose weight.

    I’m looking forward to this movie. It is a shame that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s marriage collapsed right when he is finally making his comeback. Marriage, in my experience, takes work. A lot of work.

    • A.

      Yeah, it takes a lot of work NOT to pork the kid’s nanny.

      astrangeone on January 13, 2011 Lol. I awyals laugh at the Japanese character whacking her fiancee. Oi domestic abuse is never funny, expect in this instance!

    This means that Arnold and Maria’s divorce has been settled.

    I mean, would he start filming knowing that half of his proceeds from the movie would go to Maria?

    This movie would bring Arnold’s career 360 degrees. One of his first movies was the western “The Villain.” Which is a dumb but funny movie.

    How is he going to do a western with his heavy German accent? Is it a comedy? This sounds like something kevin Costner should be in.

    • The Truth

      Actually it makes it very authentic since many immigrants headed west to seek cheap land and work. For him to be an immigrant or a son of one would easily explain the accent and be historically plausable for the period.

    • TvTroz

      One would think that by now he would have mastered a decent American accent. That’s his freaking profession. Seriously… did you guys see Simon Baker doing a Texas accent in last week’s The Mentalist? Good stuff.

  • the Dude

    I know right! Him and Salma Hyack sound like they did when they got here 20,30 years ago. Lose the accents or become better actors people.

  • Muhammad Ali Owais Qureshi

    Nothing beats him.

  • Muhammad Ali Owais Qureshi

    Argubly the best bodybuilder of all times so hats off to you bro from Ali.

  • stuart

    who caresabout his marriage! its got nothing to do with any one of use, we love him for his movies and who he is on screen not wat goes on in his personal life!

  • jon

    That bizarre ‘Brittney Wyatt’ comment at the top is copied and pasted into the first (or thereabouts) comment box of almost every website reporting this story today. Something fishy is going on.

  • Zeljko

    I also hope Arnold will do more dramas from now on, adapting roles at his age can get out of its potential as an actor.
