"The Last Stand" doesn't even nearly as much action, judging from the script alone.
So you've heard the script sucks, but know for a fact it doesn't have as much action as Commando, which few action films do.
I haven't heard that the script sucked, but I heard it's rather average and doesn't really feature Arnold in most of the action scenes. And that would not be good at all.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Making His 'Last Stand' In January, 2013
^Bit of a long wait for some Arnie action, although surely he'll have a cameo in Expendables 2.
January has become the haven for R rated action movies.
Stone Cold Steve Austin in!
That's the exact same expression I had when I realised Steve Austin and Jee Woon Kim would make a film together.
According to some guy on IMDb, this might be Austin's role.
Exclusive: Rodrigo Santoro in talks to join THE LAST STAND!
Good casting in this film so far. Very eclectic and mixed.
I think it's a good role for Arnold. He can't do a full on 1 man army action pic anymore.
A minute ago, I didn't even know about this movie.
Now I really, really want Austin as Lewis.
BAH GAWD KING!!!! this movie is sounding better by the minute.
Anyone who watched wrestling in 2001 should know that Steve Austin will be an awesome conspiracy nut!
Santoro is confirmed according to The Hollywood Reporter as a "party-loving officer."
I'll just throw out the obvious: He's most likely involved with the escape of the cartel leader. Besides the ethnicity casting (Hollywood is unoriginal with this) it's going to be the party guy who we are "shocked" to learn is their man on the inside.
I'm interested to see who they get to play the villain team now. Peter Stormare is a great start.
A drug dealer called Gabriel Cortez Smith is captured in Las Vegas by FBI agent John Bannister and moved to another area of the town for trial. However, his men ambush the convoy, and Smith escapes on a modified race car, the Gumpert Apollo, heading to the Mexican border on 177mph.
The FBI attempts to stop Smith, but his car is faster than anything they have, and his men are sabotaging every attempt to stop him. Eventually, Bannister realizes that the only thing between Smith and the border is Sommerton Junction, a small town near the border. He contacts Sheriff Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a former member of the LAPD that left for Sommerton Junction after his partner was crippled and he was shot three times by a gang member.
Owens and his deputies, Frank Martinez (Rodrigo Santoro) and Jerry Bailey (Zach Gilford), are asked to stop Smith before he enters Mexico, at which point the FBI won't be able to extraditate him. Owens initially refuses, claiming that Smith is the FBI's problem, but changes his mind when Smith hires ex-soldier turned mercenary Burrell (Peter Stormare) and his men to kill all the cops in Sommerton Junction. Infuriated over the murders of their friends, Owens, Martinez and Bailey join forces with Sarah Torrance (Jaimie Alexander), Martinez' girlfriend; and Lewis Dinkun (Steve Austin), a conspiracy theorist who lives nearby and own a large cache of weapons; and they set off to confront Burrell and his men in order to stop Smith before it's too late.
That's a pretty ace cast!
I love that Jacinto from The Devil's Backbone, a deep, chilling, sad portrayal, of a villain who became a villain due to tragic circumstances, is gonna get shot dead by Schwarzenegger where no such pontificating will occur.
I'm thinking Whitaker is the FBI Agent based on the plot.
Whitaker and Knoxville?
hmm...i like how the cast is building up. could be a surprisingly good/entertaining movie.
I like Knoxville, he's actually a fine actor in my books.
