Remember back when Arnold Schwarzenegger had just left the governor’s office and was actively looking to reboot his acting career? Rumors swirled that the ‘Terminator’ star was more than willing to return to the franchise that helped put him on the map for a fifth installment. As it turns out, we might have to thank James Cameron for talking Schwarzenegger down from that ‘Terminator’ ledge.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has accomplished pretty much every goal he has set out to accomplish. He's starred in blockbuster movies, won numerous bodybuilding awards, became a governor and fathered children out of wedlock (which is such a Conan move).
Now the bodybuilder/actor/politician/returning actor has one more goal to accomplish. He's is in the middle of writing his memoirs and he needs your help.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone getting together again (after 'The Expendables' films) would seem like a dream team for a movie twenty years ago, but only now do we get the two in leading roles playing against each other in Mikael Hafstrom's 'The Tomb.' In what seems like a bid for the four quadrants, the film has added Amy Ryan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.
Arnold Schwarzenegger continues to ease back into acting following a lengthy political career. He’s getting his feet wet with standard action fare like ‘Expendables’ installments and the upcoming ‘The Last Stand.’ But the Muscles from Brussels also used to dabble in comedy, and he opened up about plans to do a ‘Twins’ feature during a recent interview.
1988's 'Twins' was a huge success, partly because of the unnatural pairing of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito as test tube brothers. The film itself is pretty unmemorable, other than it showed that Arnie was bulletproof at the box office at the time. Well, that high concept is about to get higher as Universal is moving forward with a sequel called 'Triplets' which would add Eddie Murphy to the mix. Audible groan.
Action fans anxiously awaiting the return of biceps, BOTOX and bazookas for 'The Expendables 2' were a little worried when news hit a few weeks ago that Chuck Norris said the star-studded sequel to the 2010 hard 'R' action extravaganza would be toned down because of his involvement. But, as it turns out, there's no need to worry.
