Arnold Schwarzenegger Signs on for ‘478’

Not sure what this means for Legend of Conan but let’s hope this movie is coming after that. Anyway, Deadline is reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger has found a project to follow Terminator Genisys. He has aligned himself to star in 478, a dark script by Javier Gullon, the Spanish writer best known for the Denis Villenueve-directed Enemy. That was an adaptation of the Jose Saramago classic novel The Double that Jake Gyllenhaal starred in. Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa is producing and the aim is to shoot in the fall.

In 478, Schwarzenegger plays a man whose wife and child die in a plane crash. The tragedy was caused by an air traffic controller’s screw-up.

 

The air traffic controller is vilified for his mistake and placed into protective custody. Schwarzenegger cannot let it go, and is determined to seek vengeance. Though is sounds like a standard revenge film, I’m told it isn’t. It is much more subtle than that — a real character piece more than an action film and gives Schwarzenegger a chance to show the chops he displayed on Maggie.

Let’s hope it’s not as mind numbingly tedious as Maggie but this sounds like an intriguing premise.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
