Arnold Schwarzenegger Developing Governator Movie
04.04.11 by REELZ
When action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger became governor of California (or how the Austrian-born actor pronounced it — C-A-L-E-E-F-O-R-N-E-E-A), he was given the moniker Governator, a wordplay off his most famous character, the Terminator.
Well, now it looks like Arnold is taking the name Governator and is turning it into his next franchise.
Speaking at TV market convention in Cannnes, Arnold spoke about the project.
First will come (The Governator) comic books, then a (cartoon) TV series and after that we will develop the games and then a movie.
At the convention, Schwarzenegger unveiled a trailer for the Governator cartoon, which was co-created by comic book legend Stan Lee, along with Andy and Amy Heyward of A Squared Entertainment. The trailer featured a voice cameo by Larry King.
EW was the first to unveil project and has first look at some of the storyboards for the planned comic books.
Arnold talks about the idea behind The Governator.
When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about the Governator, I thought the word was so cool. The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world. And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies…
Little else is known about the The Governator, including cast or a release date.
