As we told you here back in May the “Governator” had his acting comeback sights set on us, the state where he made Twins in our capital city and surrounding back in the 1980s (a simpler, less scandalous time).
First on the itinerary for Schwarzenegger’s return to film was a movie titled Cry Macho, a drama with a plot eerily similar to the escándalo recently surrounding the actor turned politician, turned paternally-outed philanderer, scheduled to shoot here before a big fat pause was put on any thespian ambitions the retiring Governor had his eyes on.
Well from married to divorced and from drama to western, it turns out Schwarzenegger WILL BE BACK in front of the camera here in NM. Production on The Last Stand is scheduled to begin as early as next month. This time out Arnold will take the reins of his movie comeback down Valencia County way!
A studio executive says of the film, “It’s an old-fashioned Western specifically designed for a 63-year-old broken-down guy with a moral decision whether Arnold decides to stand up for his town.” via WMAL
All the world is a forgiving stage and as sure as life does go on, film will continue to ROLL. So by all means roll on into NM!
The Valencia County News-Bulletin today released their full report on the production including more plot details and most importantly the fiscal impact the production can lend to the shooting locale – read their full story here.
Any cast/crew info. on this project will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
