So. Freaking. Awesome!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is attached to star in a rights package that CAA is about to start shoppin' around town!
If picked up, and it's being looked at by almost every major studio, it will revive the franchise and spur a lot of clever people to say that Arnie "is back" just like he said he would be. Unfortunately there is no screenwriter attached yet, so we're not sure about the caliber of the story.
They have found a director, though, that they're shopping with the package. That would be Justin Lin, who most recently did Fast Five, which is doing well in the box office so he's got all kinds of attention right now.
Arnold, we're so excited! We hope the shoppin' goes well! With studios like Universal, Sony and Lionsgate, and CBS Films eyeing up your package (LOLz) we're willing to bet that things go smoothly, and that the bidding war will be awesome for you!
Are U guys pumped to hear this??
