A while back came the word that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first post-“Expendables 2” project would be a stripped down action thriller called “Black Sands”. Turns out it won’t be as stripped down as we thought.
The previous report had Arnie playing a loner who wages war against a ruthless weapons manufacturer and his private army in the American Southwest.
Now called “Black Sunday”, the film is being described as a cross between “Commando and Constantine”. Schwarzenegger tells The Arnold Fans that “I’m a kind of angel. I cannot currently say more about this film.”
Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy (“Act Of Valor”) are directing from a script by Sergio Altieri and Kevin Elders which Skip Woods (“A Good Day To Die Hard”) performed re-writes on. Filming begins in April.
