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.
