Published: November 23, 2012 - 12:40pm
The upcoming action/western from Korean suspense master Kim Jee-Woon also stars Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare and Luis Guzman and is slated for theatrical release and 2013
Schwarzenegger stars as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for one of the most daring face offs in cinema history.
Directed by Kim Jee-Woon off a script by Andrew Knauer and Jeffrey Nachmanoff, The Last Stand stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare, Johnny Knoxville, Zach Gilford, Forest Whitaker, Luis Guzman, Rodrigo Santoro, Eduardo Noriega and Harry Dean Stanton and scheduled for theatrical release January 18, 2013.
