Website The Arnold Fans is reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger could be dabbling in the supernatural once again.
The action star, who once saved the world from the Devil in the 1999 End of Days, is topping Black Sunday. The project is described as “action mixed with sci-fi/fantasy”.
The site reports that Arnold will play an immortal. “I’m a kind of angel,” he said, “I can not currently say more about this film.” Expect this movie, with Arnold raging war against weapons dealers as an immortal instrument of death, to be a cross between Constantine and Commando!
Black Sunday will be directed by Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy. Financed by Bill Block’s QED, the film will begin production April 1 in Belen, New Mexico. READ MORE
The reigning masterpiece of Italian horror cinema, Mario Bava’s Black Sunday remains one of the most stylishly photographed of all horror films, ranking with any other black-and-white film of lasting repute. This was the master cameraman’s official directorial debut, and his striking compositions are the work of a genuine artist in peak form. Loosely adapted from a story by Nikolai Gogol, this chilling vampire tale begins in 17th-century Moldavia, where the evil Princess Asa (Barbara Steele) is executed for witchcraft and vampirism, along with her brother Javutich (Arturo Dominici). Two centuries later, a pair of traveling doctors discover Asa’s crypt and inadvertently revive the evil princess, whose scheme of vampiric revenge is aimed at her own identical descendant Princess Katia, an innocent beauty (also played by Steele) whose lifeblood will ensure Asa’s immortality.
