With his leaving his office as governor of California and landing straight onto the pages of tabloids worldwide with his impending divorce from former wife Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger is in need of some really good news. And what could be better than getting back onto the big screen.

Deadline is reporting that Schwarzenegger will indeed be leading Kim Ji-woon’s upcoming film, THE LAST STAND. The actor had been rumored in connection with the project for some time, and now the ink has hit the page. The film will follow a sheriff looking to curb a drug cartel and its recently released from prison leader.

Penned by writers Andrew Knauer and Jeffrey Nachmanoff, the film will be the follow-up to Ji-woon’s latest film, I SAW THE DEVIL, a fine little revenge thriller that is a huge hit within the Twitter-sphere. Personally, while I wasn’t huge on I SAW THE DEVIL, I do like a lot of what I’ve seen from Ji-woon, particularly a film like THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE WEIRD. He’s a really great director, and the combo of he and Arnold should be quite intriguing.

    I absolutely CAN NOT WAIT to see what comes from this pairing. Arnold needs some one talented to push him back to the top and this could be the pairing that does it. I Saw the Devil was my favorite film of Fantastic Fest.
