Arnold Schwarzenegger's ongoing love affair with the silver-screen looks set to run and run, despite repetitive assurances that the Governator would "not be back".
Since he is now officially a politician, one can excuse Arnie for failing to live up to the iron-clad promises in his manifesto, and no surprise then that the world's true Last Action Hero will be starring in a new film, The Kid & I.
Tom Arnold, who acted alongside the governor of California's in True Lies, is set to co-star, co-write and produce this comedy directed by Penelope Spheeris.
The plot revolves around a 17-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who is promised by his uncle, played by Joe Mantegna, that he can become an action star by his 18th birthday - much in the mould of the burly Arnold S.
Arnie is apparently only making a brief appearance in the forthcoming feature, as he did in the Jackie Chan and Steve Coogan vehicle, Around the World in 80 Days, earlier this year.
