Arnold Schwarzenegger’s BLACK SANDS Becomes BLACK SUNDAY; Adds a Supernatural Edge
In October, we reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be following up The Expendables 2 with the action flick Black Sands. Schwarzenegger was reportedly set to play “a loner who wages war against a ruthless weapons manufacturer and his private army in the Southwest.” Now the former California governor says there’s a supernatural element in the plot as well. Speaking to TheArnoldFans (via The Playlist), Schwarzenegger says “I’m a kind of angel. I cannot currently say more about this film.” TheArnoldFans add that the movie, now titled Black Sunday, is a cross between Commando and Constantine. What does that mean? My guess: His character and Alyssa Milano happily feeding demonic deer on a fiery hellscape. Or maybe it’s like End of Days, and who didn’t like that film? (Everyone).
Filming on Black Sunday is set to begin on April 1, 2012. Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy will direct. Schwarzenegger will be seen next summer in The Expendables 2. He also stars in The Last Stand, which opens January 18, 2013.
