Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirms Movie Comeback
Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed he is in talks to make a return to the big screen and is currently reading through a number of scripts.
The Terminator star stepped away from Hollywood to pursue a career in politics and served as California Governor from 2003 until he relinquished the role earlier this month. Schwarzenegger made a number of small movie appearances during his time in office, in films such as Terminator Salvation and The Expendables, and speculation has been mounting that he will return to Hollywood now he is no longer a serving politician.
The action man has now revealed he is in talks for three different film projects, which will take him away from the "extreme fighting" which catapulted him to fame.
He tells Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung, "Currently I'm reading three scripts. In the future I have to adapt to roles (for) my age. Clint Eastwood also has done it in the same way. Extreme fighting is not possible anymore."
And there is one film Schwarzenegger is particularly interested in - World War II movie With Wings As Eagles, in which he would play a Nazi commander.
He adds, "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(s) them to safety at the risk of his life and it has all kinds of adventure."
