After his stint as governor of Cali-FAWN-ia, Arnold Schwarzenegger promised I'll be baaack in Hollywood, and reports are that he's returning to the big screen this fall.
Reuters is reporting that Schwarzenegger will begin shooting for the Western Movie The Last Stand in September.
It's an old-fashioned Western specifically designed for a 63 year-old broken-down guy with a moral decision...We always needed an iconic figure for it, an unnamed movie executive told industry website Deadline Hollywood, which first reported the story on Monday.
The Last Stand is to be directed by South Korea's Jee-woon Kim is expected to be released some time in 2012, according to Reuters.
Reuters reports that neither representatives for Schwarzenegger, 63, nor a spokesman for the Lionsgate film studio commented on the reports. But an industry who spoke to the news agency under conditions of anonymity, said the movie continues as planned with Schwarzenegger in the lead role.
A split from wife Maria Shriver and a highly-publicized damaging sex scandal delayed Schwarzenegger's return. Shriver ended 25 years of marriage when she filed for divorce last week, citing irreconcilable differences, according to Reuters.
In May, Schwarzenegger stopped discussions on a Terminator movie to focus on personal matters after admitting to fathering a secret child 13 years ago with the family's housekeeper.
Schwarzenegger spent seven years as California governor and was last seen on screen in a cameo role in the 2010 action movie The Expendables, according to Reuters.
