Arnold Schwarzenegger has teamed up with the writers behind his anticipated movie Terminator 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES to remake the 1973 futuristic western flick WESTWORLD.

Writers Michael Ferris and John Brancato, who have rewritten Halle Berry's upcoming film Catwoman, will pen the script, while Schwarzenegger and JERRY WEINTRAUB will produce.

But muscle-clad Austrian Schwarzenegger will not be playing the YUL BRYNNER role of the robotic gunfighter, instead taking on a part as one of the vacation guests.

The movie is based on Michael Crichton's novel of the same name.

Weintraub jokes, "Hopefully, we get it made as Arnold's next one, before he's governor. Though it would heighten the tension if he were visiting Westworld as the governor of California."
