Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He’s Ready to Start Acting Again

Former Terminator/Pregnant Man/California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has announced that he’s ready to return movies.  Schwarzenegger tweeted [yes, it's weird to put those words next to each other]:

Exciting news. My friends at [Creative Artists Agency] have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today.

Last month we ran a story that Schwarzenegger was reportedly looking at several scripts, but that he would be taking roles that were age-appropriate.  One of the films he was looking at was a World War II drama called With Wings as Eagles. The script is based off the true story of a German officer who helped American POWs escape.  I personally haven’t missed Schwarzenegger that much because his films are so much a part of a particular era of Hollywood filmmaking.  Also he hadn’t made a good one since arguably 1996′s Eraser.  It will be interesting to see how he plans to re-assimilate now that he’s done governing a state whose name he can’t pronounce.

        Look up suedemason on youtube, he does a whole remix of that scene to make a song. It is outstanding.

    Surely this sentence:

    “I personally haven’t missed Schwarzenegger that much because his films are so much a part of a particular era of Hollywood filmmaking…”

    Should finish: “…that I don’t like.” Plenty of actors are associated with a particular era of filmmaking. After a solid decade of shakycam miserablism, I’m sure plenty of us would welcome a rebirth of the classic ‘fun’ style of action movie so inextricably linked to Schwarzenegger et al.

    It’s true that he needs to pick his next move carefully, as his films for the last five years or so of his acting career reflected his clear waning of enthusiasm for movie-making. If we can get another Total Recall, Predator or Terminator-quality film or three out of him before he calls it a day, I say bring it on. King Conan with Milius at the helm would be my top choice (let’s pretend this new cut-price reboot doesn’t exist).

    Of course, I don’t live in California, so I don’t really give a crap about his personal beliefs or political career and can enjoy his films for what they are.

    Now that he has driven the state of California into the ground, he’s all geared up to do Terminator 5: Why Bother?
