He told us he would be back! According to The Hollywood Reporter, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will make an official statement regarding his return to the silver screen on April 4 in Cannes, France.

Schwarzenegger’s reps are keeping an aura of mystery around the governor’s future plans, teasing the press with the vague news that he will be working on an “international TV series.”

Although the Schwarzenegger camp is remaining quiet on the details, the mere promise of his return is enough to kick up the Hollywood rumor mill. In an interview with MovieWeb, “True Lies” co-star Tom Arnold admits that Schwarzenegger will be working alongside him in the future, possibly on the James Cameron True Lies 2 script.  “All I can say right now is, I know that Arnold [Schwarzenegger] and I will work together. A lot of people are sending him scripts now,” Tom Arnold tells MovieWeb.

Hollywood’s excitement over Schwarzenegger’s return is a stark contrast to the Golden state’s current political atmosphere. According to the LA Times, California republicans have released an official statement denouncing Schwarzenegger’s recent decision to lessen the sentence of Esteban Núñez, son of the former California State Assembly Speaker. Prior to the governor’s intervention, Núñez faced 16 years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter for his involvement in the stabbing death of a San Diego State University student. Schwarzenegger recently lessened Núñez’s sentence to a seven-year term, pointing to the fact that the politician’s son did not inflict the fatal wound.
