Arnold Schwarzenegger is back

The body builder-turned-movie star-turned-Governor of California is out of office and ready to get back in front of the cameras. He currently is reading through a number of scripts.

The “Terminator” star stepped away from Hollywood to pursue a career in politics and served as California Governor from 2003 until he relinquished the role earlier this month. Schwarzenegger made a number of small movie appearances during his time in office, in films such as “Terminator Salvation” and “The Expendables,” and speculation has been mounting that he will return to Hollywood now that he is no longer a serving politician.

The action man has now revealed he is in talks for three different film projects, which will take him away from the “extreme fighting” which catapulted him to fame. He is more interested now in small independent films with good scripts that are challenging more his skills as an actor.

The 62 year old tells Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung, “Currently I’m reading three scripts. In the future I have to adapt to roles (for) my age. Clint Eastwood also has done it in the same way. Extreme fighting is not possible anymore.”

And there is one film Schwarzenegger is particularly interested in – World War II movie “With Wings As Eagles,” in which he would play a Nazi commander.

He adds, “In it I would play an older soldier, who gets the order at the ending of the war to kill a bunch of kids. But he doesn’t do it and get(s) them to safety at the risk of his life and it has all kinds of adventure.”
