Curtis will play Schwarzenegger’s wife in the picture about an elite intelligence task force designed to stop international nuclear terrorism. As previously reported, Tom Arnold has already inked a deal to co-star.

Curtis was represented by Creative Artists Agency’s Rick Kurtzman in negotiations.

Curtis moves to the role after a starring turn in the just-completed sequel to “My Girl.” She also stars in the Oct. 13 Miramax Films release “Mother’s Boys.” Curtis’ “When I Was Little: A 4-Year-Old’s Memoir of Her Youth” arrives in bookstores in September.
