There has been lots of talk about which film Arnold Schwarzenegger will choose as his first lead after leaving public office. So far, there has been no mention of True Lies 2 aside from Tom Arnold's claims.
Schwarzenegger was asked previously what scripts he was considering as his comeback film, he responded by saying:
"Well, first of all it's more [like] 15 films, obvious ones from 'The Terminator' to remakes of 'Predator' and 'The Running Man' and all of those things."
Here is what he had to say about Arnold's claims in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly:
"The idea of a 'True Lies' sequel has been around since the early 2000s, but then 9/11 happened and we didn't do it because it had to do with a terrorist attack. A lot of terrorist-type scripts were cancelled back then, but now they are emerging again because there hasn't been a terrorist attack in the last 10 years. Then, of course, there's dialogue about me getting back into the Terminator thing. But you know, I've been out of office only two months now. I couldn't be thinking about doing 'Terminator 16' while I was still governor."
His response when asked if he'd be reteaming with James Cameron on a film short and sweet, he said: "Could be."
It would be interesting to see him in The Terminator and I'd love to see him in True Lies 2. Which film would you like to see him star in?
