Arnold Schwarzenegger Now Ready to Return Again with 'Last Stand'?

Back in April, we learned that Arnold Schwarzenegger would make his return to the big screen with Last Stand, a gestating western that would mark the English language debut of director Jee-woon Kim. However, when the actor's life took an unfortunate turn as it was revealed that he had a love child with his family's nanny, and decided to separate from his wife Maria Shriver, all of his projects were on hold indefinitely to allow the former governor to deal with his family issues first. Now Deadline has word that Schwarzenegger is back on for Last Stand, and the project could go in front of cameras this September.
Considering how much coverage this scandal received in the media, there may be some audiences who don't care to see the actor return. Personally, I try to keep all the gossip and personal information on actors, directors and other Hollywood talent separate from their film careers, so I'm interested to see what the aging action star has in store for his return, especially with the story of a small town sheriff single-handedly trying to stop a drug cartel kind from escaping to Mexico. Combine that with the fact that he'll be working with the director of The Good, the Bad, the Weird, and this is exactly the kind of film I want to see much sooner than later. This film will likely be a test for the actor to see just how much his reputation has been hurt by the aforementioned scandal, and may influence how the rest of his potential projects fall into place.

I grew with him and he is the king of things that go boom and catch phrases but will he be an action hero in this one? Or like stallone in cop land?

Stallone was great in Cop Land. Arnie can't really act that much above farce level though, all the movies that I liked with him in were one's I watched as a child, when taking on entire armies single handed and emerging from a bullet ridden shed were believable.

In an ironic way or you seriously like them? That bit when Bennett gets electrocuted and gets double strength before getting impaled is pretty awesome.
