Mariel Hemingway has inked to play Maria Shriver in A&E’s upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger biopic “See Arnold Run.” Jurgen Prochnow (“The English Patient”) has also finalized his deal to star as Schwarzenegger.
Production begins next week in San Diego for a premiere in the first quarter 2005.
J.B. Rogers (“American Pie 2”) is on board to direct from a script by Matt Dorff (“Inside the Osmonds”).
Rounding out the cast is Roland Kickinger (“Son of the Beach”), who will play the younger Schwarzenegger. “Arnold” tackles the parallel stories of his bid to win the Mr. Olympia title as a young bodybuilder and of his national headline-making bid to become governor of California.
