Arnold Schwarzenegger recently met with his legion of hardcore fans in Columbus, Ohio for a private breakfast, where he disclosed his upcoming shooting plans for both The Tomb and The Unknown Soldier (formerly known as Black Sands, which he is making with Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh (aka The Bandito Brothers), the two directors behind the recent box office hit Act of Valor).
Arnold Schwarzenegger stepped before cameras on The Expendables 2 first thing out of office, then moved directly into The Last Stand, a shoot that lasted from October to December of last year. He is now recovering from shoulder surgery. Once that heals, he will move into The Tomb opposite Sylvester Stallone. The action icon has revealed that The Tomb of the title is actually a large prison barge set adrift in the ocean that he and Sly must break out of.
Once this movie is finished, he will then move directly into what will be his fourth film out of office, The Unknown Soldier. Here is what Arnold Schwarzenegger told some of his biggest fans this past weekend.
"I had a terrific time after my work as governor to be asked by Sylvester Stallone to be in The Expendables 2, so I flew to Bulgaria and worked there for a few days and it was fantastic! They had Jean-Claude Van Damme in the movie and Dolph Lundgren and Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Norris-- every action hero between the ages of 30 and 100. On the movie set they're having the biggest shootouts, and we have a great time when you do that because they're very funny guys and masters at what they're doing.
From that movie I went on to do The Last Stand, which was shot in New Mexico and we shot that from October to December. That was a terrific experience, and that movie's going to come out a little less than a year from now. They're working on editing now, and the visual effects.
The next movie I'm working on again with Sylvester Stallone is The Tomb which will be a prison movie. We are both caught in the most difficult prison to break out of, which is a huge ship out in the ocean, so you can't escape. But of course, we figure it out!
Then we're going to do The Unknown Soldier which is going to be with the Bandito Brothers that did Act of Valor, the number one movie right now and is getting such notoriety because they shot if for 4 million dollars and it looks like 100 million dollar movie because they got military and shot real action stuff which makes the movie so big and very successful, great story and everything. Those directors are doing The Unknown Soldier, we start shooting sometime in June. Hopefully by that time my shoulder will be OK so I can do the stunts, but I'm looking forward to all that."
