I am riding in the back seat with my friends D and C. We are lost somewhere on a San Diego air force base. We wait at a stoplight. They argue about which way to turn. A hovering oil tanker lands gently next to us on its long spindly legs. I had heard that they had invented these things but am impressed to finally see one. We drive out through the fog onto a sea-cliff-side road. I can see the ocean and gulls below us. We park at a large airport terminal and go inside. At a folding table I get a paper cup of water with some brown pills floating in it. I stir it to make coffee and it starts to foam over. I brush the excess into a trash can. A very thin Arnold Schwarzenegger is wheeled in a wheelchair into the area. We talk together like old friends.
Rowdy’s Dream Blog #239: A very thin Arnold Schwarzenegger in a wheelchair.
He Said He’d Be Back
Yup. Arnold Schwarzenegger is coming to town. Arnie’s big, fat, post-political comeback film is primed to shoot right here in New Mexico. The ex-Governator has signed to star in the action flick The Last Stand for Lionsgate Entertainment. The movie will be directed by Korean up-and-comer Kim Jee-Woon (A Tale of Two Sisters; The Good, The Bad, The Weird). It spins the story of a disgraced LAPD officer who retreats to a sleepy New Mexico border town to serve as sheriff. The calm is disturbed, though, when a ruthless drug kingpin escapes from FBI custody and mounts a convoy heading to the Mexican border at 200 mph. Naturally, the bad guy has to pass through Arnie’s little town to get there, promising lots of high-octane action (and hopefully some ’80s-style quips). Johnny Knoxville is also in it. So there. Production on the film started Oct. 17 and is expected to shoot on locations across New Mexico and Nevada through November.
