Arnold Schwarzenegger planning return to acting

Austrian-born star has now completed his service as Governor of California

Arnold Schwarzenegger is plotting his return to acting after ending his service as Californian Governor.

Schwarzenegger served as 38th Governor of California until Democrat Jerry Brown was elected to succeed him in 2010 and assumed the post this month.

Now the Austrian-born actor has told Krone.at that he’s looking at three movie scripts with a view to returning to the big screen.

“Currently I’m reading three scripts,” he said. “One topic/script, which I considered a long time ago before [being] governor is delighting me particularly. In it I would play an older 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!”

The script is believed to be called With Wings As Eagles, written by Braveheart writer Randall Wallace. It is based on a true story of a German soldier who defies the Nazi party orders and helps US prisoners of war escape.

Schwarzengegger stepped away from acting after taking up the political role in 2003. He recently had a cameo in The Expendables, but he hasn’t lead a film since Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines in 2003.
