COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The Greater Columbus Film Commission has announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger will star in a movie that begins filming in Columbus next month.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the commission has posted a blog that says production begins Dec. 6 for a film titled “478.” Production is expected to take 25 days.
The newspaper reports that Schwarzenegger will play a man who loses his wife and child in a plane crash caused by an air controller’s mistake and that Schwarzenegger’s character seeks revenge after the controller is punished and is placed in protective custody.
The film has a projected budget of $10.5 million and will be directed by Elliott Lester.
Schwarzenegger, a five-time Mr. Universe and the former Republican governor of California, visits Columbus each year for the Arnold Sports Festival.
