Believe it or not, it has been four years since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s last action movie, 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate. Whatever you thought about that film, Arnold’s presence has been missed. Fortunately, he’ll be seen next month on the Netflix series, FUBAR, and now it’s being reported by Deadline that Arnold has set his next feature film.
The Governator will star in Breakout, a new action movie from The Expendables 4 director, Scott Waugh. Arnold will star as Terry Reynolds, who risks a daring jailbreak in a foreign country when his stepson is framed for a crime and sentenced to 25 years in prison. To get to safety, they’ll need to overcome an overzealous prison warden in a race against time to flee the country.
Richard D’Ovidio (The Call) wrote the script based on a story he co-created with Nicole D’Ovidio.
Waugh is best known for directing Act of Valor and Need for Speed. If it were any other Expendables film he was directing, it would be a reunion but Arnold did not sign on to The Expendables 4, which opens in September.
