Schwarzenegger’s Next Act

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is eyeing three scripts, including a World War II action movie that would be similar to “With Wings As Eagles.”

That’s what he said in an interview with the Austrian newspaper The Krone, according to Variety’s Justin Kroll. He writes, “New pic revolves around an aging German soldier ordered to kill a young POW group, who decides instead to usher the group past enemy lines to safety.”

But Schwarzenegger also seems realistic about the marketplace. “Throwing myself around the room and shooting people is no longer in there,” he said.

To a certain extent, he’s going to have to find ways to continue to capture maximum exposure in a fractured news environment, particularly if he is going to continue to press environmental issues and political reform.
