He's back, baby.

Days after the news of Arnold Schwarzenegger's love-child from an extramarital affair went public in May, he pulled out of all movie projects. But now, according to Deadline, the 63-year-old actor has reattached himself to the Western movie Last Stand.

According to the site, filming of Last Stand will begin in September. "It's a property which a zillion directors fell in love with: the good, the bad, the weird," a Lionsgate executive said. "It's an old-fashioned Western specifically designed for a 63-year-old broken-down guy with a moral decision whether Arnold decides to stand up for his town. We always needed an iconic figure for it."

Schwarzenegger famously starred in many action films, including the Terminator franchise, but also acted in comedies including Twins and Jingle All the Way. His acting career took a hiatus, however, when he served as the Governor of California from 2003 to 2011.
