Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed on to star in his first film since leaving the California governor's office and admitting that he fathered a child with a former household employee, Deadline.com reported Monday.
Schwarzenegger will star in "Last Stand," a Western to be directed by South Korean filmmaker Kim Ji-woon and released by Lionsgate.
A Lionsgate executive described the film as "an old-fashioned Western specifically designed for a 63-year-old broken-down guy."
In April, Schwarzenegger also said he would consider returning for a fifth "Terminator" movie, on the condition the script met with his approval.
After the scandal broke, a representative said Schwarzenegger was "focusing on personal matters" and "not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines."
