Schwarzenegger's 'True Lies' co-star Tom Arnold has hinted the upcoming film might be the first movie for the 'Commando' actor after he left office as Governor of California.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has reportedly signed up for "True Lies" sequel. After speaking about making the sequel over the years, Schwarzenegger's co-star Tom Arnold has now hinted "True Lies 2" could be Schwarzenegger's next movie after he handed over the reign of California government.
"I have read a great True Lies 2 script, and I hope we are able to do it," so the 52-year-old actor claimed to MovieWeb. He continued, "Knock on wood. Arnold Schwarzenegger is excited. I am excited."
Arnold suggested that he and the actor of "The Terminator" "will work together". He further detailed, "A lot of people are sending him scripts now. He is carefully going through them, deciding what he wants to do. He wants to have some fun. He wants to do something that is worth his time, but fun. Hopefully, we can get this thing figured out. And we can get something on track. I am just waiting. I am following his lead."
On the occasion, he implied that James Cameron, director of "True Lies", would not direct the sequel. He explained, "There is a script that James Cameron and a guy named Jeff Eastin, who created the TV show 'White Collar', wrote. It is really great. Jim can't direct it. But he can produce it."
Arnold, however, believed there are other directors who can work on the film. He said, "There is a list of really good directors. There have always been people who were interested in doing it. I let those guys handle that. I put in my two cents."
Speaking about the possibility to make the script into realization, Arnold admitted he wants the film to be made. The former host of "The Best Damn Sports Show Period" said, "We hope it gets done. We have a few fun things we want to do. I am supposed to remain cool about this. For me, it would be a lot of fun to work with the guys again."
