Schwarzenegger And Arnold Plan True Lies Sequel
Arnold Schwarzenegger and best pal Tom Arnold are planning to reteam for a sequel to 1994 action comedy True Lies - as soon as Arnie gives up his post as Governor of California.
Schwarzenegger put his acting career on hold when he was elected to the post in 2003. He was re-elected in 2006, but is banned from running a third time, and close friend and True Lies co-star Arnold is ready to lure him back into the studio, to make a True Lies follow up with director James Cameron.
Arnold tells Starpulse.com, "If all goes as planned, the day Arnold leaves office, we will again team with Jim Cameron and do a comedy. Jim says it might not be called True Lies II, but it will be fun.
"True Lies was my first real movie experience, and we've all stayed close, which I've realised, 50 films later, is very unusual. I love those guys."
Arnold is convinced he'll be able to lure his friend back to acting - because one of the rare movie appearances Schwarzenegger has made in the past six years was in a film he wrote, which featured their True Lies co-star Jamie Lee Curtis.
He adds, "(It) was a cameo with Jamie Lee Curtis in The Kid, a movie I wrote and produced based on my real relationship with my next door neighbour. He's a talented young man with cerebral palsy who watched True Lies 100 times and dreamed of playing the action hero in a film like that, with me as his sidekick."
