Schwarzenegger's 'Black Sands' Gets Supernatural Twist & New Title
In October we learned that Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to the big screen meant new projects for the action icon left and right. In addition to The Last Stand and The Expendables 2, the Governator had also signed on to star in Black Sands, a new action film from Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy, the duo behind the Navy SEALs flick Act of Valor (watch the trailer right here). The film's original story was said to follow Schwarzenegger as a loner who wages war against a ruthless weapons manufacturer and his private army in the Southwest, however, it sounds like the project now has a bit of a supernatural twist to the plot. Read on!
Now titled Black Sunday, Schwarzenegger told TheArnoldFans (via The Playlist) that he's playing some kind of immortal hero now. The actor says, "I'm a kind of angel, but I can not currently say more about this film." Apparently the project is now being described as a cross between Commando and Constantine, which sounds a little like End of Days to us, but since Schwarzenegger has been away from the big screen for so long, we'll just assume he forgot about that film just as much as the rest of us wish we could. Anyway, we'll see if Schwarzenegger's new films are better than his later work before heading into politics.
