Arnold Schwarzenegger reading scripts, contemplating comeback

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Slowly but surely, Arnold Schwarzenegger is working his way back into the movie business.

It started with his celebrated cameo in Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables.” It continued with an opening slot at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, where he poked fun at fellow film stars and openly lobbied (with tongue in cheek) for an acting job.

He may get his wish.

The bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-politician-turned-actor-again tells Krone.at (via Coming Soon) that he’s currently reading three scripts with an eye toward a silver screen return, and even confirmed that one of them was “With Wings as Eagles,” a return to the action genre for Mr. Schwarzenegger.

“Currently I’m reading three scripts. One topic/script, which I considered a long time ago before governor, is delighting me particularly. In it I would play an older [German] soldier, who gets the order at the ending of the war to kill a bunch of kids. But he doesn’t do it and get them to safety at the risk of his life and it has all kind of adventure. This script is based on a true story!”

That translation comes from www.TheArnoldFans.com, who also clarify that the script in question is “Eagles,” which was written by Randall Wallace of “Braveheart” fame.

The site could not confirm the other two scripts, but it sounds like Schwarzenegger plans a comeback. Are you ready for more Arnold?
