Arnold Schwarzenegger Rumored to Join ‘Avatar 2′ as the Bad Guy

It’s been almost 20 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron last worked together on 1994’s ‘True Lies,’ so we’d be overjoyed to the see the duo paired together again. The latest rumor hints at just that, as supposedly Arnie will join Cameron’s ‘Avatar 2‘ as the bad guy.

This comes from Latino Review, and it’s a big one. Though it seems audience’s affection for Pandora and its Na’vi inhabitants have cooled some, ‘Avatar’ is still the highest grossing film of all time, and the addition of Schwarzenegger should stoke some curiosity. The production can also make great hay with Schwarzenegger returning to playing a bad guy for Cameron, as both became famous for their work together on ‘The Terminator,’ while Schwarzenegger hasn’t played an antagonist since then.

This is also a good move for the Austrian bodybuilder turned movie star turned Governor turned back into an actor again. Schwarzenegger’s action antics wore out their box office welcome about 10 years ago (when he moved into politics), but his absence didn’t make audiences any fonder for his work. Earlier this year he starred in ‘The Last Stand,’ which grossed a measly $12 million stateside, while it’s hard to say if his teaming up with Sylvester Stallone in ‘Escape Plan‘ will suffer a similar fate. This would be a high-profile gig and a welcome reunion for the director and star. ‘Avatar 2′ is due out in December 2016, so they’ve got some time on this one.
