Now that he’s done being the Governator of the sunshiny state of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to return to the big screen. After a position in office that had some people cringing for quite a while, Arnie is looking to return to his simpler roots; no, not Austria – the less controversial role of a movie star. The Terminator tweeted earlier today that he had some “exciting news”:
“My friends at CAA have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today.”
So what does this mean for us? Are we going to get to see Schwarzenegger kick some major ass anytime soon? Well, yes and no. While the movie maker moguls might be chomping at the bit to get Arnold in their films, they won’t be the high-impact, boot-up-the-bad-guy’s-ass type of movies we’re used to. Think more along the lines of Kindergarten Cop. He explains:
“In the future I have to adapt to roles [for] my age. Clint Eastwood also has done it in the same way. Extreme fighting is not possible any more.”
Oof… like a dagger to my little heart. Even the Last Action Hero gets old. At least we’ll get to see his old ass age from the front row. Bring on the popcorn – we’re ready for you, Dutch.
