Arnold Schwarzenegger signs on to first post-split film
Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to start shooting a new movie in September.
Deadline.com reports that a Lionsgate Western titled Last Stand will be the first film that tests Schwarzenegger’s popularity post-scandal.
Arnold was originally attached to the film, but pulled out when his marriage troubles made headlines. In May, Arnold and wife Maria Shriver announced they were separating after the former California governor admitted to fathering a child with the family’s longtime housekeeper, Mildred Baena.
Then Liam Neeson was attached to Last Stand, but got busy with other projects. Now that things have quieted down, Arnold has signed back on, says Deadline. One of Arnold’s other film projects, Cry Macho, looks to be delayed until February 2012.
