Schwarzenegger is back in a Kim Jee-woon film

LOS ANGELES - Arnold Schwarzenegger, former muscleman and governor of California, is returning to the movies. He’s on the New Mexico set of “The Last Stand,’’ playing the starring role as a small-town border sheriff.

The actor posted a message on his Twitter account late Monday saying, “Fantastic first day on the set of The Last Stand. Big thanks to the crew - keep up the great work.’’

The Lionsgate studio says Schwarzenegger plays a former Los Angeles police officer who ends up sheriff of a small border town after a botched operation. The movie is a modern-day Western about convicts making their way to the Mexico border through New Mexico after escaping from a Las Vegas prison.

“The Last Stand’’ is being directed by Kim Jee-woon.
