Arnold Schwarzenegger

In the latest Arnie Schwarzenegger comeback special edition of Empire, there is a 16-page long interview with the action icon. Hidden therein are more than a few details about his upcoming projects, including the David Ayers' Breacher.

For those not in the know, Breacher (formerly Ten), is an ensemble piece starring Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Olivia Williams and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Arnie playing the head of a corrupt DEA task force whose members are gradually falling to foul play.

"All of these projects are appealing because they give me the chance to slowly come back rather than rush into it," explains Arnie. "I like the idea of starting again, but trying to come back halfway down and working my way slowly back up again. So that's the idea, to do more personal stories and ensemble pieces like Predator."

"Breacher, especially, will be very like a new Predator," he adds. "It's a team around me and they get knocked off until there's only me left. Except in this casethere will be a different twist to the whole thing instead of some alien monster."

"I think that Predator, when I look back at it, was a very appealing kind of a movie. It was also good that I was not the only star of it. I mean, I was the star of it because at the end the focus goes to me, but you can let other people shine too give them screen time and not be in every scene. So I think that’s what I like about Breacher and the way it’s written. But it is a great character, an extremely interesting character and very well written. David Ayers is really talented."

For more on Breacher from Arnie's co-star, Olivia Williams, be sure to check out our Empire Podcast interview with her where he mentions more on just what it's like to work with the big man, as well as details on the film itself.

Then there's the question mark that hangs over Arnie in any interview he might do what of the character that he's still best known for... The Terminator?

"I think (producer) Megan Ellison owns the rights to Terminator 16, or whatever it is. They have been trying to put a script together but I've not seen it, so I've no idea. There's nothing on the drawing board at this point. Nothing on the plan."

For more details on Arnie, be sure to read the latest issue of Empire on shelves Thursday September 27 – which has so much Schwarzenegger in it, you may well cry with with joy. And to make sure you get lovely limited edition covers every month, subscribe to Empire today.

Clever Choices
Arnie is actually being really clever with his comeback choices. Expendables was always going to be a success so it was a no brainer. But everything after that is being helmed by very talented directors like David Ayer, Mikael Hafstrom and Kin Ji-Woon. More
