Schwarzenegger goes supernatural (again) for next movie

Thirteen years after he battled Satan himself in End of Days, Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning to the supernatural (as an angel?) for his next movie.

The former governor of California has thrown himself back into acting since leaving office last year, and told followers at TheArnoldFans that in his next project, titled Black Sunday, he'll play what he called "kind of an angel," although he added, "I can not currently say more about this film." The site described the movie as a cross between Commando and Constantine, with Schwarzenegger "raging [sic] war against weapons dealers as an immortal instrument of death."

What's odd about this whole thing is that Black Sunday was originally called Black Sands, with the script said to be in the mode of films like the Denzel Washington action thriller Man on Fire and the classic Clint Eastwood western High Plains Drifter. Somewhere along the line—either at the star's request or through the rewriting stage or both—the supernatural came into the mix.

Well, whatever it ends up being, Black Sunday starts production in New Mexico on April 1. It will follow Schwarzenegger's two already completed projects, The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, into movie theatres, presumably in 2013.

Does the idea of Ah-nuld playing some kind of immortal being grab ya?
