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.
