Not strictly horror but with a proper return to the silver screen by action and 80’s sci-fi legend and ex-Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger, a thrilling plot and now the inclusion of Genesis Rodriguez (‘Man on a Ledge’, ‘Entourage’) in the cast list certainly deserves a mention here at the Horror Asylum. The movie ‘The Last Stand’ comes from ‘I Saw the Devil’ director Kim Jee-woon and the sexy Rodriguez (below) is on board to play an FBI agent. Jaimie Alexander (‘Thor’), Forest Whitaker (‘The Experiment’), Peter Stormare (‘Fargo’), Rodrigo Santoro (‘Lost’) and ‘Jackass’ star Johnny Knoxville will all co-star in the movie expected some time in 2013. Check out the plot deets below.
“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.”
