Arnold Schwarzenegger’s post-political office acting career is finally coming to fruition, as evidenced by these new images from The Last Stand .
A modern western, Last Stand casts Arnie as Sheriff Ray Owens, a man tasked with preventing a drug kingpin from crossing the Mexico border, assisted by his inexperienced staff.
Sounds like it’ll be a role requiring the Austrian Oak to do more acting than flexing, which is probably a wise idea at this stage in his career.
And the cast list is pretty diverse, including Forest Whitaker, Genesis Rodriguez, Eduardo Noriega, Johnny Knoxville and Harry Dean Stanton.
The Last Stand opens in the UK on 25 January 2012.
