Default The Last Stand Review Thread (Use Spoiler Tags)


Arnold Schwarzenegger Ends Post-Scandal Hiatus With Kim Ji-woon’s ‘The Last Stand’

Quote:
It’s been a rollercoaster year for Arnold Schwarzenegger. After finishing his term as Governor of California, the icon announced his return to acting, helped create awful-looking animated series The Governator, and waffled between a few projects including Kim Ji-woon‘s English-language debut The Last Stand and another film, Cry Macho, before settling on the latter as his first major post-political film role.

But then his paternity scandal caused him to put all media activities on hold for an indefinite period. That period has evidently now come to a close as there is a report that the actor will star in The Last Stand, which will shoot this September.

Deadline says that Arnie won’t get nearly as much money for this project as he would have when he was booked for Cry Macho in the pre-scandal days. This project will be a test on multiple fronts, then: of his ability to draw and audience both after his political career and after being hit by the scandal torpedo.

Kim Ji-woon is the director of The Good, the Bad, the Weird and the recent bloody thriller I Saw the Devil. While promoting that film last year he talked about Last Stand, which was written by Andrew Knauer:

My concept for The Last Stand is that it’s kind of a combination of Die Hard and High Noon where (the latter) was about protecting something very important that needs to be protected, while Die Hard is a very drawn-out, long process that almost kills someone in the process, so my film will be something that has to be very well protected and in the process, we almost die protecting it in a way. So if I Saw the Devil was about a person’s extreme remorse about having lost something that they couldn’t protect, The Last Stand would be where someone puts their lives on the line to protect something that’s very important and it will be a bit more optimistic film in that regard.

couldnt find a thread for this, if there already is one i apologize.

EXCELLENT NEWS.

This will be an opening day watch. It will also be a day 1 purchase due to the fact that it stars Arnie (regardless of how good it is). Yes, I am THAT much of a fan.

Kim Ji Woon plus Arnie? It just might work. I'll be looking forward to this one for now.

Kim Ji-Woon is among my favorite directors right now, so I'm definitely gonna watch his US feature debut. I'm not so sure about the casting of Arnold on this one though (it doesn't look like a great move considering all the negative controversies he's been involved in). I wish Liam Neeson stayed (he was the originally set to play the lead role), it probably would've been more badass, but we'll see.

yeah i was bummed when Liam Neeson dropped out, but this is just as awesome imo. im glad Arnie is doing something different and not doing some sort of lame big hollywood movie. he just needs to get in shape, if Sly can still be kicking ass theres no reason Arnold cant.

Doesn't Sly take a crap ton of HGH? lol

I wonder if Arnold can firm back up, that would be cool to see him back on screen kicking butt.

Quote:
Schwarzenegger will be starring as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for one of the most daring face offs in cinema history.

sounds amazing!!!

TORONTO - The Last Stand, directed by Kim Jee Woon and produced by Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, has started production in New Mexico and Nevada.
our editor recommendsArnold Schwarzenegger to Star in Modern-Day Western 'The Last Stand'
Arnold & Maria: The Fallout


Besides lead Arnold Schwarzenegger, the latest talent line up from Lionsgate includes Forest Whitaker, Luis Guzman, Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Eduardo Noriega and Harry Dean Stanton.

The modern western drama portrays an ageing small-town sheriff who finds himself and his inexperienced staff as the only thing standing in between a fugitive cartel leader and the Mexican border.

Korean action-suspense master Kim Jee-Woon is directing the film, which is based on a spec script by Andrew Knauer that was rewritten by Jeffrey Nachmanoff.

Lionsgate has domestic and international distribution rights.

Knoxville is repped by CAA, Guzman is repped by the Gersh Agency, and Whitaker is represented by WME.

Stanton is repped by Bresler-Kelly and Associates.

Why Arnold? He's gonna ruin this film with his horrible acting. I'm a huge Kim ji Woon fan but I think he's making a big mistake casting Arnold. Had it starred someone else I would've been there opening day. Man, Liam Neeson in a Kim Ji Woon film would've been awesome. What a bummer, this film could've been great.

Arnold is THE man and my reasoning for showing up opening day. Disagree 100% about Liam. If it was Liam i'd probably netflix it or wait for hbo. This will be much more special with Arnold.

Arnold rocks in that pic btw.
