Schwarzenegger comeback to be filmed in New Mexico
BELEN, N.M. (KABC) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger will be making his comeback to the big screen in New Mexico with the film, "Last Stand."
The former California governor will be filming the movie in Belen, N.M. in October, reports the Valencia County News-Bulletin.
The movie follows convicts trying to make their way to the Mexican border through New Mexico after escaping from a Las Vegas prison.
The rest of the casting for the modern-day Western will be complete in September, according to location manager Paul Roberts.
"Last Stand" marks the first major movie role Schwarzenegger since 2003's "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." He also had a cameo in last summer's "The Expendables."
Schwarzenegger said in May that he was putting his acting projects on hold after disclosing that he fathered a child with a family housekeeper and splitting with wife Maria Shriver.
