Arnie to Star in Why We’re Killing Gunther

So the next film for Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t Legend of Conan but an action comedy called Why We’re Killing Gunther. Slightly less interesting but according to THR “it will be directed by Saturday Night Live star Taran Killam, making his directorial debut.

Killam, who also wrote the script, also will star in the ensemble along with his wife, actress Cobie Smulders, SNL’s Bobby Moynihan, Paul Brittain (Hotel Transylvania 2), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Randall Park (The Interview) and Ryan Gaul (Identity Thief).

Killam, Kim Leadford, Ash Sarohia and Steve Squillante will produce, while StarStream Media will finance.

MadRiver Pictures will introduce the project to international buyers at the upcoming Cannes film market, with UTA representing North American rights.

The story focuses on a group of eccentric international assassins who become fed up with Gunther, the world’s greatest hitman who also happens to be an arrogant show-off, and decide to kill him. Their master plan, however, quickly turns into a series of embarrassing encounters as Gunther always appears one step ahead.

A June start date is being eyed.”

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.
