(NewsReady.com) – Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) made headlines in April when he filled a service trench in his neighborhood after SoCalGas finished work on a line. Now, the former governor is back in the news again. This time because he is coming back to the big screen.
On Monday, April 24, Deadline reported Schwarzenegger is going to be starring in a film after a four-year break. The 75-year-old actor will be in the new action movie “Breakout.” Filming is set to start later this year in Eastern Europe.
According to the report, Schwarzenegger’s character is named Terry Reynolds, whose stepson is sentenced to 25 years in prison after being framed for a crime. The actor hatches a plan to break him out of prison and escape the country. He’s racing against the clock and trying to evade capture by a prison warden who takes his job very seriously.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back to action flicks as a man who breaks his stepson outta prison. It would be soooo much easier if he knew Michael Scofield. https://t.co/9oQvtODv9R

Scott Waugh will direct the film. He has also directed “The Expendables 4,” “Act of Valor,” and other films.
The former governor’s last film was “Terminator: Dark Fate” in 2019. He also has an upcoming Netflix series, “Fubar,” the first series he has ever done. In it, he plays a father who, along with his daughter, discovers they’ve been serving as CIA operatives for years.
Schwarzenegger served as governor from November 2003 to January 2011. The “Governator” went up against the state’s powerful unions during his time in office and managed to win bipartisan support while in office.
Prior to serving as the governor of the Golden State, Schwarzenegger had a long and illustrious film career. He’s known as one of the greatest action stars of his generation. His role as the Terminator was iconic, and he also filmed dozens of other movies in his time, including “Predator,” Kindergarten Cop,” and “True Lies.”
It’s not clear when the actor’s new movie will be released in theaters.
