Arnold Schwarzenegger to star in Last Stand

July 11th, 2011

Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed up for new Western 'Last Stand'.

The 'Terminator' star - who quit acting while he was the Governor of California - was originally attached to the movie but pulled out after he and wife Maria Shriver split in May, following revelations he had fathered a son with the family's housekeeper Mildred Baena 13 years ago while they were still married.

However, Arnold has now signed on again after his rumoured replacement, Liam Neeson, pulled out.

According to, the movie is to start shooting in September while his other film, 'Cry Macho', looks set to be delayed until February 2012.

Earlier this year, the former politician revealed he was keen for a return to acting.

He said: "It is like bicycling or like skiing. You get on it and you feel like there is no time lapse there at all.

"The list is a long list of things I can do, but nothing I can concentrate on until I am literally, totally out of office. For me the joy of life is not to know, and you get into it and you kind of figure it out. I love that. I don't like safety nets. I am not a believer in that."

However, he hasn't been completely out of the movie world as he had a cameo in Sylvester Stallone's 'The Expendables' last year and in 2004 starred as Prince Hapi in 'Around the World in 80 Days'.
