    Details below. I thought it was going to be an old school western. Still sounds great!

    Kim Jee-Woon is busy directing the film, which finds Schwarzenegger as Sheriff Owens, a former member of the LAPD who retreats to small-town lawman life after a bungled operation that left his partner crippled. But though he’s resigned to cleaning up petty crime in the quiet Summerton, he’s suddenly offered a new challenge: he and his rag-tag, inexperienced team are the only ones who can stop a fugitive cartel leader fleeing to freedom from justice in Mexico. Oh, and there’s the small matter of the heavily armed gang looking to make sure he gets there…

    There’s no word on which roles Whitaker, Knoxville and Guzman are taking, but they’re joining a cast that already includes Zach Gilford, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stomare and Harry Dean Stanton.

    Jee-Woon is working from a script by Jeffrey Nachmanoff and Andrew Knauer. It’ll arrive over here sometime next year.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Serious acting?

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that this will be the worst Arnie movie of all.

    That's certainly an... interesting lineup. Could be good, could be absolute baws, but either way it should be interesting.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Maybe Arnie's Copland.
    Doubt it though

    "I Saw the Devil" is fucking brilliant though, by the same director

    Even worse than End of Days? Is that even possible?

    Hoping this will be good, Arnie had an amazing run of films from 1982-1994: Conan, Terminator, Red Sonja, Commando, Raw Deal, Predator, The Running Man, Red Heat, Twins, Total Recall, Kindergarten Cop, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Last Action Hero, True Lies.

    Career really went downhill after that, will be interesting to see how this one does at the box office.

    Last Action Hero was a huuuuuuge flop! You can't count that one. And Twins?!

    End of days was ok, Eraser was shite.

    I like the premise of this movie, will await a trailer before giving a verdict.

    Yeah, Copland was my first association as well when I read the first post. Time will tell.

    There's a difference though, Stallone is a pretty fair actor in his own right, Arnie is somewhat more kitsch as soon as he opens his mouth. The only way I can see him working is if he were to act in German, and be more natural and less animated.

    Maybe they'll dub him like they did in Hercules in New York.

    We shall see, I'll be watching it regardless, a well seasoned Schwarzenegger should be interesting no matter what and he's still awesome regardless.

    Twins and Kindergarten Cop made a lot of money and are quite enjoyable comedies, and I think Last Action Hero is underrated, didn't deserve to bomb.

    Looks pretty good to be fair, although Knoxville looks like a cunt in it.

    Looks fun, won't be serious by any stretch though, clearly!

    Just a heads up, having looked at IMDB it appears that a sequel to Twins is in the pipeline...

    I would agree with that. Of the action films Arnie made Eraser was easily the worst. I don't bother rating the other films Arnie made e.g. Junior, Twins etc.

    I even quite like End of days. What's not to like about Arnie taking on the devil armed with a rocket launcher?

    As for the new film I think he just looks too old now for an action part. He looked positively accent in his cameo in the Expendables. He has clearly decided not to have himself coated in shiny plastic for preservation purposes ala Stallone.

    Eraser and the 6th day. Both a lot worse than End of Days. A LOT worse.

    Oh I had forgotten 6th day. At least Eraser has Arnie shooting a plane down while parachuting and jumping out of the way of near light speed projectiles.

    Hmm tricky. Which is worse. I think I might have to go with 6th day as I can actually remember a couple of scenes from Eraser.

    Things I can remember about 6th day..... I think it had a couple of cool helicopters in it... That's it.

    @glaeken mm, but in Eraser it has the line "you're luggage".

    Not sure I remember much dialog from it. Or any come to think about it. I do think now I have given it some thought 6th day is worse.

    Actually looking through his film list I noticed I had also forgotten Collateral Damage. I think from what I remember that was just very average though and nothing particularly terrible.

    Yep. Some of the worst CGI Crocodiles ever to grace the silver screen. Not that I can think of any other contenders. Dr.Who would have refused to use CGI that bad.
