Arnold Schwarzenegger Is the New Sheriff in Town in First 'Last Stand' Poster (Photo)
The Western will be the former California governor’s first leading role since 2003’s "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines."
Arnold Schwarzenegger has already made his way back onto the big screen with an appearance in Expendables 2, which hits theaters Friday. However, the former California governor will hit the big screen in a much bigger way when The Last Stand hits theaters on Jan. 18, 2013.
Schwarzenegger, 65, takes on his first leading role since 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines as small-town border sheriff battling a Mexican drug cartel in the film, which is Korean director Jee-woon Kim’s English-language debut.
In the first poster for the film, Schwarzenegger is shown standing tall, with a gun in his hand and a dramatic look of determination on his face. In the background is a red Chevy. A nice dramatic tagline accompanies the poster: "Not in his Town. Not on his Watch."
The Last Stand also stars Rodrigo Santoro, Zach Gilford and Forest Whitaker.
Last May, after news broke that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child out of wedlock, Schwarzenegger’s counsel announced that the actor would be halting all film projects so he could focus on personal matters. However, it was a brief hiatus because in July 2011, news broke that he would star in The Last Stand.
Schwarzenegger can be seen on the big screen beginning Friday as he reprises his cameo role as mercenary Trench in Expendables 2.
The actor has several other projects in the works, including actioner The Tomb (which also stars Sylvester Stallone) and Breacher, David Ayer’s latest action thriller.
