Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest outing, Sabotage, has him teaming up with director David Ayer, the man behind one of the best cop movies in recent years (End of Watch). As a result, this doesn’t actually feel like your typical Schwarzenegger action movie. Instead, it deals with real life law enforcement situations and the gritty and visceral nature of crimes in a way that we don’t often see in Hollywood.
Co-starring Joe Manganiello, Terrence Howard, Sam Worthington and Mireille Enos, the film sees its acting icon playing the head of a DEA squad who gets mixed up with a dangerous drug cartel. One by one members of Arnie’s team start dying and it’s up to the remaining agents to pull together and figure out what’s going on before they’re all wiped out.
Last week, while at the film’s LA press junket, I had the honor of landing an exclusive interview with Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger. He couldn’t have been friendlier as we discussed what drew him to this particular role, why he was so excited to work with Ayer and where he wants to see his acting career go from here.
Additionally, I also spoke with Manganiello as well as two technical advisors on the film (Mark Schlegel and Jamie Fitzsimons), who told us about the training process, the research that was done for the roles and more!
