Over a month ago Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he was ready to start acting again. And now Hollywood has come a calling with a remake, reboot or some sort of spin-off of every great action movie he's ever been in.
At the "Arnold Classic" (a bodybuilding seminar) Schwarzenegger told the website Arnold Fans exactly what he (and Hollywood) has in mind for his return to film:
"Well, first of all it's more 15 films, obvious ones from The Terminator to remakes of Predator and The Running Man and all of those things. Then also a lot of original stuff too. But I am also packaging a Comic Book character right now. I'm going to announce that sometime by the end of March or the beginning of April."
While we're always ready for another helping of Predator, we're not sure the monster movie needs a remake. And the same goes for Running Man. Who knows if these pitches are true remakes or merely sequels or spin-offs. No one can be certain with a statement this vague. But one thing is certain, this come back is going to be massive. And if Arnold wants to do a Predator remake, Hollywood will make it happen, but fingers crossed for a worthy sequel instead.
Also, a comic book character? Interesting — no word on if the character is based on Arnold, or just someone he's helping create, but consider our interest piqued.
