Forest Whitaker Making The Last Stand

Forest Whitaker Making The Last Stand

The cameras started cranking yesterday on Western-toned crime thriller The Last Stand, but that doesn’t mean Arnold Schwarzenegger’s big return to films is finished releasing casting info. Rounding out the ensemble? Jonny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker and Luiz Guzman.

Kim Jee-Woon is busy directing the film, which finds Schwarzenegger as Sheriff Owens, a former member of the LAPD who retreats to small-town lawman life after a bungled operation that left his partner crippled. But though he’s resigned to cleaning up petty crime in the quiet Summerton, he’s suddenly offered a new challenge: he and his rag-tag, inexperienced team are the only ones who can stop a fugitive cartel leader fleeing to freedom from justice in Mexico. Oh, and there’s the small matter of the heavily armed gang looking to make sure he gets there…

There’s no word on which roles Whitaker, Knoxville and Guzman are taking, but they’re joining a cast that already includes Zach Gilford, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stomare and Harry Dean Stanton.

Jee-Woon is working from a script by Jeffrey Nachmanoff and Andrew Knauer. It’ll arrive over here sometime next year. Question is, does anyone want the Austrian Oak back in front of the camera (aside from Sly Stallone, that is)? We’ll find out…

Arnie's back, rejoice!
Anyone who doesn't want to see Arnie back on our screens is someone I don't think I could get on with. Elements of Hostage and 3:10 To Yuma, among other influences, could make this a decent film. Probably not a triumphant return to ridiculous one-liners, epic gun fights and inflatable muscles, but as long as it's better than Collateral Damge and The 6th Day, I'll be there with bells on. More
