TheArnoldFans website recently had a chance to ask Arnold Schwarzenegger a few questions about his upcoming movie projects. The actor clarified which films will come first and revealed why the prison in "The Tomb" will be so difficult for himself and Sylvester Stallone to escape from. Read the transcript below or watch the video.
Arnold Schwarzenegger: "I had a terrific time after my work as governor to be asked by Stallone to be in 'Expendables 2,' so I flew to Bulgaria and worked there for a few days and it was fantastic! They had Van Damme in the movie and Dolph Lundgren and Stallone and Chuck Norris -- every action hero between the ages of 30 and 100. On the movie set they're having the biggest shootouts, and we have a great time when you do that because they're very funny guys and masters at what they're doing.
From that movie I went on to do 'The Last Stand' which was shot in New Mexico and we shot that from October to December. That was a terrific experience, and that movie is going to come out a little less than a year from now. They're working on editing now and the visual effects.
The next movie I'm working on again with Sly is 'The Tomb' which will be a prison movie. We are both caught in the most difficult prison to break out of, which is a huge ship out in the ocean, so you can't escape. But of course, we figure it out! (audience laughs)
Then we're going to do 'The Unknown Soldier' which is going to be with the Bandito Brothers that did 'Act of Valor,' the number one movie right now and is getting such notoriety because they shot if for 4 million dollars and it looks like 100 million dollar movie because they got military and shot real action stuff which makes the movie so big and very successful, great story and everything. Those directors are doing 'Unknown Soldier,' we start shooting sometime in June. Hopefully by that time my shoulder will be OK so I can do the stunts, but I'm looking forward to all that."
He's old but he must believe in himself if he's signing up for all of these movies. As long as he brings charisma and he does all that he can to kick some ass I think most of these movies are going to be pretty cool. The plots seem pretty random but I guess he wants to try to make as many action flicks before he reeeeeally can't do it anymore. Good for him.

I miss that one film he did. You know, the comedy where he was a California Governor.
I mean The Expendables 2 with him, Stallone, Van Damme, Willis, Norris, Lundgren, Li and Statham, not only that even he gets to shoot some bad guys and maybe destory some stuffs.
Also The Last Stand and The Tomb with Stallone again, this is a action fan's dream come true.
I have to mention Steven Seagel is a total d******* for not joining The Expendables franchinse, the rest of these action legends have part their differences aside to make a great action movie for action fans (who hate Twilight movies and misses the old days of real action movies) so why can't Seagel just leave KFC and make a awesome action movie with another action legend.
I mean he turned down the chance to be with Van Damme in Demolination Man and he turned down The Expendables.
He should put his past behind and becomes friends again with Avi Lerner and join The Expendables 3.
Anybody noticed in the clip, how he looks half awake?
Better hurry up making all those films before it's too late! But hey, take it easy Arnie, you don't want to check in the hospice too early. You should have done all of that since 2003. Bloody politics.

Not got a sex tape like Hulk 'I blacked out for a few months and f*cked owt with a pulse' Hogan though have you?
King Conan with Arnie as the older Conan and some f*cker younger for the flashbacks...DO IT.
Hulk hogans best role? That mid 1990's pseudo mercenery/baywatch tv series on the USA network. It was called thunder something. They had like this badass speedboat with guns on it straight out of a futuristic reboot of michales navy! Know what im talking about???
