Everyone seems pretty interested in seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger return to the big screen sooner rather than later, because let’s face it… “The Governator” just isn’t as entertaining a concept as it used to be, and the current crop of wrestlers turned action movie stars just aren’t cutting it as far as I’m concerned. Well now Moviehole has an intriguing inside tip regarding what Arnold’s next movie project may be.
It seems that James Cameron wants Arnold to star in his Battle Angel Alita film, based on the popular anime, where he will fill the role of cyborg Ido. In fact, Cameron is so set on getting Schwarzenegger for the flick that he decided to push back production of the movie in order to wait for him to finish his term in office (which explains why Cameron has started to move forward with other projects in the meantime). Still, I don’t know, this report does seem a little fishy to me. Last we heard, Schwarzenegger had turned down the chance to appear in Terminator 4, and now he’s going to jump into another cyborg role? Then again, the one important thing that Battle Angel has over T4 is obvious: James Cameron. So who knows, maybe we’ll see the two hooking up again soon after all. Now that would be something to look forward to.» Related Link: Moviehole
