It's been a rocky year for Arnold Schwarzenegger, but he now appears to be putting his public scandal and divorce behind him and looking forward to his next film. Earlier in the year, Arnold was set to go with Cry Macho, but now he's decided that the western Last Stand will be his comeback film. A studio exec described the film as "an old-fashioned Western specifically designed for a 63-year-old broken-down guy." Like many movies of the genre, Arnold's character will face a moral decision over whether or not to stand up for his town. Last Stand will not only be Arnold's big return to a starring role, but it also marks director Kim Ji-woon's (The Good, The Bad, The Weird, I Saw the Devil) first foray into an English-language film. It's a project that's been long in development with many different directors and stars interested to tackle the material. »
