He'll be Back! Arnold Schwarzenegger to return to acting.

From TVGuide.com


He said he'll be back.

Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted Friday that he is ready to start considering film roles again.

"Exciting news. My friends at CAA [Creative Artists Agency] have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously," the former governor of California tweeted. "Gave them the green light today."

Prior to winning the governorship in 2003, Schwarzenegger was best known for his roles in the Terminator franchise, True Lies, Kindergarten Cop and Twins. During his seven years in office, he made cameos in 2004's Around the World in 80 Days and last year's The Expendables.

Are you excited about Schwarzenegger's return to film?

Re: He'll be Back! Arnold Schwarzenegger to return to acting.

I wonder if Stallone has written a script for Expendables 2 yet? Maybe Arnold can be added in the mix?

Expendables 2 would be my first choice.

I think pretty much everyone has given up on seeing a True Lies sequel. Once Cameron is free from Avatar in 2015, it will have been 21 years since True Lies. Arnold will be almost 70 by then.

Re: He'll be Back! Arnold Schwarzenegger to return to acting.

I loved Arnie back in the day... but hell, he looked like a shadow of his former self in his brief cameo in The Expendables. Maybe he needs to work into shape or something. And unless he's going to give me an 80's type action revival like Stallone is, I'll pass. I don't care to see him in Kindergarten Cop 2 or some stupid comedy with Devito.

Arnold is out of shape, but if anyone can get his ass back in shape, it's him. I'm sure if the Oak decides to make something that requires him to look ripped, he'll do it. But I think he's done making the moves we associate him with.

What a coincidence since I just saw Terminator 2 today. He kicked ass back in the day - hope he can again...

Re: He'll be Back! Arnold Schwarzenegger to return to acting.

I recall seeing news recently that he was actively circling a couple different potential projects (forgot what they were).

I believe one was a theatrical adaptation of King Lear, and the other an unidentified project with David Lynch.

Dunno if he's actually finished it or whatever. BUT he does have a story for it...and he was pretty gung ho on putting more Willis and Arnold.

Please oh fucking please get Arnold to pump up again, Sly. Make him a badass again..the last good Arnold movie was True Lies. You've no idea how badly I want a sequel to my childhood dream movie that was made into a reality via the badassness of you, Stallone.

And I see no problem seeing him caught as an aging spy and having to be rescued by his daughter Eliza Dushku.

He should do the whole movie of that version of Hamlet in Last Action Hero.

Re: He'll be Back! Arnold Schwarzenegger to return to acting.

I'd love to see a True Lies 2 but I don't see it happening. I talked to Tom Arnold some 9 years ago and he said there was a script but they were all just waiting for Cameron.

I don't know what I'd like to see Arnold do. Maybe I've seen him too many times these past few years as the Govenator.

If it's really waiting on Cameron that yea it will probably never happen.

I've always liked Arnold's less popular roles like Twins and Last Action Hero. Don't really want to see him go back to the Terminator thing. Expendables 2 is probably a given though.

How about a Demolition Man 2: The Three Seashells with just Stallone v.s. Arnold?

The correct answer is Commando 2. The world needs John Matrix now more than ever. Rae Dawn Chong and Alyssa Milano are ready to go!
