After putting his acting career on hold for a couple of months to let the media frenzy over his extramarital affair die down, the “Terminator” star and former California governor is back in action, TVGuide.com reports.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed to appear in “The Last Stand,” a feature film in which he will play a sheriff doing battle with a Mexican drug cartel, the story says. The role was expected at one point to be played by Liam Neeson.
The movie will be helmed by Korean director Jee-woon Kim, making his English-language directing debut.
When the scandal broke two months ago over Schwarzenegger’s extramarital affair and love child, the actor pulled out of some projects and was dumped by others. The status of his various potential projects, notably a “Terminator” sequel, remains in limbo.
