(CBS) Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who put his Hollywood comeback on hold in the spring to deal with his divorce amid a messy sex scandal, is ready to get back in front of the camera as the lead in a Western movie called "The Last Stand."'
The Los Angeles Times reports a deal was finalized days ago for the 60-year-old action hero to star in South Korean director Kim-ji-Woon's first English language film. A report by Reuters quotes industry sources saying filming could begin as early as September.
The movie revolves around a standoff between an aging sheriff and the leader of a drug cartel.
Schwarzenegger was on the brink of reviving the movie career he gave up for politics when reports surfaced in May about a teenaged with his family's housekeeper. His wife, Maria Shriver, left him and later filed papers to end their 25-year marriage. They have four children together.
