Arnold Schwarzenegger’s back at work in front of the cameras after a lengthy foray into the world of politics and he’s been keeping fans up to date on his film projects via Twitter. And in a recent tweet, he showed off a picture of a gash he got on his forehead while on the set of The Last Stand directed by Jee-woon Kim (A Tale of Two Sisters).
On November 17, Schwarzenegger posted: “Got a little banged up on set today. Thanks to the medical staff who got me back in action an hour later!”
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 the 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.
