Arnold Schwarzenegger is poised to mark his big screen return to Hollywood by replacing Liam Neeson in a new action thriller.
The movie hardman has been keeping fans guessing over what his first film role since stepping down as California Governor will be, and he was most recently linked to an unlikely comeback as an over-the-hill horse trainer in Cry Macho.

But it appears Schwarzenegger is looking to return to more familiar territory – he’s been offered a starring role in director Jee-woon Kim’s Last Stand, according to trade paper Daily Variety. Taken star Neeson had previously been courted for the role.

However, Last Stand is not Schwarzenegger’s only action option – he’s also entered talks to lead Antoine Fuqua’s next project, The Tomb, an action thriller about a security expert who’s framed for a crime.
