Schwarzenegger Considering Three Movie Roles, One As A Nazi

Just about anybody proficient at cutting and pasting into the Google searchbox will be able to find a copy of Randall Wallace’s script With Wings As Eagles online. It’s just been hanging out there as a .txt, garnering very little attention.

I expect Arnold Schwarzenegger has just changed that dramatically. In an interview with Krone (uncovered by The Arnold Fans, highlighted to me by Coming Soon), the former governor has revealed that he’s currently considering the lead role in that very picture:

Currently I’m reading three scripts. One topic/script, which I considered a long time ago before governor, is delighting me particularly. In it I would play an older soldier, who gets the order at the ending of the war to kill a bunch of kids. But he doesn’t do it and get them to safety at the risk of his life and it has all kind of adventure. This script is based on a true story.

That’s definitely the Wallace script. With Wings As Eagles was adapted from Ostermann’s War, a mid-90s novel by James Cullen and Schwarzenegger has been circling the project, with some degree of intent, for about fifteen years now.

And what of the other two scripts he’s currently mulling over? No real clues, but he seems to be erring (wisely) towards less action-packed options:

In the future I have to adapt my roles to my age. Clint Eastwood also has done it in the same way. Extreme fighting or shooting is not possible anymore. I want to be more encouraged as an actor and I believe that I can manage this challenge. I am like a sponge, which is absorbing all the knowledge and always be willing to learn all new things.

Maybe he could team up with Clint for a Grumpy Old Men redux. That’d sell.
