What’s Arnold Schwarzenegger doing now?
Hollywood veteran Arnold Schwarzenegger has a number of upcoming movies and television shows. While he started out as a bodybuilder and actor, over the years, Arnold Schwarzenegger has become a film producer, businessman, and even the former “Governator” of California. Better known as the T-800 from the Terminator series, many of the best and worst action movies featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger typically also make millions at the box office.
Arnold’s acting career began in 1970 in Hercules in New York, with his breakthrough roles coming in 1984’s The Terminator and 1982’s Conan the Barbarian. In the ’90s, Arnold Schwarzenegger snagged notable roles in movies like Eraser, Batman & Robin, Terminator 2, and True Lies. During the last decade, the actor continued appearing and voicing characters in the Terminator movies, and also appeared in films like Aftermath, Killing Gunther, and Iron Mask.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is now 70 years old, is far from finished. The actor still has a number of projects lined up for the near future. Here are the known details of every upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger movie and television series.
Apart from being based on the 1994 James Cameron action-comedy True Lies, what makes Utap truly exciting is that it is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first live-action television series. True Lies is notably one of Sylvester Stallone’s favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. As Sly explains, “True Lies was very, very good because he combined everything in that. The wit, the romantic aspect, the charm and then great action with a great director, so. that would do it.” The cast of Utap includes Arnold Schwarzenegger as Luke Brunner, Top Gun: Maverick’s Monica Barbaro in a yet-undisclosed role, Aparna Brielle as Tina, Jay Baruchel as Carter, Fabiana Udenio as Tally, and Travis Van Winkle as Aldon. Though story details for Utap are sparse, the show is about a father and daughter spy team, and is described as a “global spy adventure.” Skydance Television and Blackjack Films Inc. are yet to announce an official release date, but Utap is expected to get released on Netflix in 2023.
An upcoming project that is sure to join the ranks of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s best and worst comedy movies, Kung Fury 2, also known as Kung Fury: The Movie, is slated for release in late 2022. The first Kung Fury was a Kickstarter-funded short film that featured actors like writer and director David Sanberg in the titular role, Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone, and even David Hasselhoff who made a cameo. Now that the 31-minute short film has garnered around 40 million views on YouTube, it’s not surprising that the idea has ballooned into a full feature. In Kung Fury 2, which is not connected to the Kung Fury but set in the same universe, the original cast will be joined by Arnold Schwarzenegger as The President, Michael Fassbender as Colt Magnum, and Alexandra Shipp as Rey Porter – with David Hasselhoff once again providing the voice of the Hoff 9000. While there are many reasons why Arnold Schwarzenegger should stop being the Terminator, the reputation that the T-800 has built over the years means that Arnold can still thrive in these types of authoritative comedic roles.
The sequel to the 1988 blockbuster comedy Twins, Triplets brings back Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as unlikely fraternal twins Julius and Vincent Benedict. Apart from how the story will be about Julius and Vincent finding out that they have a third sibling, the studio hasn’t released much details about Triplets. Moreover, joining Schwarzenegger and DeVito in the cast are comedy heavyweights Tracy Morgan and Eddie Murphy. Unfortunately, Ivan Reitman, who directed Twins and was supposed to direct Triplets, passed away on February 12, 2022. Arnold Schwarzenegger has commented that though filming was slated for October, they will need to find a new director first, and no new updates have been released about Triplets since.
The roots of every action and sci-fi movie featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger can be traced back to his character in Conan the Barbarian, and King Conan: The Legend of Conan is a movie that seeks to continue this legacy. Apart from Arnold Schwarzenegger himself being willing to reprise his role as the aging King Conan in a future movie or series, not much else has been confirmed about The Legend of Conan. While it’s unclear whether or not Netflix or Amazon will be picking up the project, or even if it will be a movie or a series, audiences are still eager to see the story of King Conan continue in his twilight years. In a nutshell, Conan the Barbarian is the archetypal sword and sorcery action hero. Created by Robert E. Howard in the 1930s as a the protagonist in a number of stories for the pulp magazine Weird Tales, Conan was an esteemed young warrior who took on various quests and faced off against sorcerers and mythical creatures.
From Jason Momoa’s ill-fated remake of Conan the Barbarian to Thor’s Marvel Cinematic Universe story and timeline, Howard’s creative footprints can be found across a wide variety of contemporary fantasy and sci-fi. In his later years, Conan led armies into battle and conquered different lands, became a pirate and mercenary leader, but also showed compassion towards women and his allies. As Arnold Schwarzenegger explains, King Conan: The Legend of Conan is a great idea because it would show how what kind of king Conan has become after he has settled down from his epic adventures.
Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator Dark Fate
Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in Amazon’s Outrider, a Western series about a ruthless Marshall and a deputy teaming up to track a legendary outlaw. Though Outrider was supposed to be Arnold’s first live-action television role, plans for the series have unfortunately failed to bear fruit, with no confirmed release window or even other stars in the cast. Following the recent revival of the classic Western movie genre, Outrider would be the first serious role in the genre for Arnold Schwarzenegger, who starred in the Western comedy The Villain in 1979.
In Outrider, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be in the starring role of the Federal Marshall. When a judge tasks a deputy with apprehending a legendary outlaw, the deputy must work with the infamously brutal Federal Marshall to ensure that justice is served in the otherwise lawless frontier. Hopefully, after Arnold Schwarzenegger is done with his above-mentioned projects, Amazon can proceed to producing Outrider and announce a release date.
