Schwarzenegger Could Be A Captive

Though it looked for a while as though his career might have been dealt a real blow by his personal scandal, Arnold Schwarzenegger is lining up film after film at the moment. Hot on the heels of signing a deal to have more screen time in old mate Sly Stallone’s Expendables sequel comes word that Arnie’s in talks to star in indie action thriller Captive.

Featuring a script by Benjamin van der Veen and Kario Salem, Captive would find the Austrian Oak as an American real estate tycoon living in Brazil who is kidnapped and held for ransom. While he tries to escape from the armoured truck he’s being kept in, the film will also follow a parallel story of a detective on a quest to find him.

Nicolai Fuglsig birthed the original idea and had planned to direct the film, but he’s now bowed out for unspecified reasons, according to Deadline.

Once the movie has a director in place, production company Emmett/Furla Films wants it shooting some time next year.

Arnie, meanwhile, is hard at work on his first film since finishing his run as California’s governor – Kim Jee-Woon’s Last Stand.
