It looks like two action cinema legends are finally sharing the big screen.
For bodybuilding fans there’s no question that Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of if not the most influential figure in the competitive sport’s history. He has shattered the image of the average muscle bound bodybuilder to rise to superstardom in many a Hollywood action film, his most iconic role of course being the T-800 Terminator from the franchise of the same name.
Now it seems Arnold Schwarzenegger is looking to take his acting chops to a new market as he stars in a new film alongside veteran Chinese cinema actor Jackie Chan.
The two are set to star opposite each other in the upcoming Russian-Chinese produced film THE IRON MASK which will see Jackie Chan face off against a villainous Arnold Schwarzenegger. Check out the trailer below to see a bit of the action first hand.

Have Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger ever done a movie together? Well dreams and Wishes have came true. (if this is was one of your movie dreams or wishes.) This looks like a very different spin on The Man In The Iron Mask with dragons and mystic kung fu fighters. . I’m all for seeing old ass Arnold and old ass Jakie fight. And it drops in April. . #theironmask #manintheironmask #AmerimeMedia #nerdislife #amerime #movietrailer #arnoldschwarzenegger #jackiechan fantasymovie #nerdmovie
