Arnold Schwarzenegger Reading Three Scripts

http://movieweb.com/person/arnold-schwarzenegger/Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to filmArnold Schwarzenegger has just barely left the Governor's office, and is already talking about returning to film. The actor told Austrian publication Krone.at (via TheArnoldFans.com) that he is currently looking at three scripts. Here's what Arnold Schwarzenegger had to say:

"Currently I'm reading three scripts. One topic/script, which I considered a long time ago before governor, is delighting me particularly. In it I would play an older soldier, who gets the order at the ending of the war to kill a bunch of kids. But he doesn't do it and get them to safety at the risk of his life and it has all kind of adventure. This script is based on a true story!"

"In the future I have to adapt my roles to my age. Clint Eastwood also has done it in the same way. Extreme fighting or shooting is not possible anymore. I want to be more encouraged as an actor and I believe that I can manage this challenge. I am like a sponge, which is absorbing all the knowledge and always be willing to learn all new things."

With Wings As Eagles, written by Randall Wallace is based on the true life story about a German officer who does not agree with his surrounding Nazi party and instead helps the American POWs escape.

Nothing else is known about the other scripts, and no production dates have been set.

        He was elected to lead . . . not to read! :D

        But now that he's no longer Governor, I guess he can read again.

              Sounds like a perfect role for him to kick off his real return to films! Should be awesome.

                  @supes... your dead on... arnold has screen charisma, and although he could blow things up with the best of em, he always found ways of reinventing himself. twins as well as kindergarten cop are perfect examples... he didnt blow up one thing in those films, yet it was great seeing him with that sort of charm, which was the complete opposite of what he was known for at the time. Very few actors can transition like that. hell i might even watch a 90 minute film of arnold taking a dump, while shooting some terrorists... all before he is even done reading the latest issue of "Harpers Magazine"... lol.

                        Arnold's a likable guy.

                        Things he shouldn't go into:

                        1) Family comedies (I'm looking at you Dwayne Johnson)

                        2) Dumb action films based solely on his star power.

                        Things he should go into:

                        1) More complex action fare with more character depth.

                        2) Broad comedies

                          he needs to be in The Expendables 2, not as a bad guy but as a rival.. like competition. and he needs to be in the next Terminator movie. Bale signed on for a franchise so he should come back. even if its a cameo like last time but have him be really there and he needs to speak

                            He should do another Terminator movie and kick Christian Bale's a$$ from one end of the Earth to the next!

                                @incmob Not only that, but I've always thought he was naturally funny, too. Not just because of his silly accent, but from his charisma. He makes me laugh without trying. I've missed actors like that.

                                  I am really excited about this as well... I never thought i would feel it but i think cinema has been a bit empty without an arnold film every 2 or 3 years. Granted most of his movies were never shakepearean, but that is the glory of them all, even with duds such as last action hero and junior i would be very pleased to go see an arnold film today. He is very smart, to be looking at his options too as an aging action star, i even thought in the expendables he looked pretty old too, compared to bruce willis, who i am not sure if he even ages anymore... but kudos to this, hope to see him back in the next few years.

                                    hell yeah cant wait to see him back in action the soldier story sounds really interesting, let me be the first to say with pun intended,

                                    You always said you'd be back,

                                    so i say

                                    WELCOME BACK MAN

                                      I know it won't happen but I would love to see a True Lies 2 with Jamie Lee Curtis and Tom Arnold returning.

                                        it's cool that he's gonna do more movies but, no more terminator for arnold. he's too old and he doesn't look right as the character anymore. even in T3 he looked kinda awkward. i like what they did with him in T: SALVATION but he himself doesn't need to be in them anymore. time for him to hang up his terminator boots.

                                        but looking forward to his new movies, whatever they may be.
