Muscle and all, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back on the big screen as the commander of an elite squad of DEA operatives in David Ayer’s action flick, Sabotage. The 66-year-old actor takes on the action in Ayer’s thriller which also stars hotties, Joe Manganiello, Sam Worthington and Terrence Howard.
HipHollywood hit the red carpet on Wednesday night for the Los Angeles premiere of the flick where Schwarzenegger talked about starring in such an incredible project.
“I’m proud of the movie, I’m proud of the cast that we have here, and I’m happy that the movie doesn’t rest entirely on my performance,” Schwarzenegger told us. “Even though I’m very proud of my performance.”
Ayer, who also directed and wrote End of Watch, explained to HipHollywood that the forthcoming film is more that just pure action. “If you like action it delivers, but its also got soul,” he explained. “It’s not just a simple, sort of one note movie. There’s a lot of different pieces to this that are really exciting.”
And we couldn’t help but notice that the writer did a perfect job casting the hot men. So we had to ask, was it a huge muscle fest while on set?
“Shirts were coming off for no reason,” he joked. “It’s like ‘come on guys, really?'”
Co-star Olivia Williams also chimed in, telling us that the boys were on their best behavior while around her. “I have the advantage of having this ridiculous accent and there’s something about a British accent that makes American actors suddenly behave themselves,” Williams shared.
She jokingly added, “So whenever I was around they were very respectful. The anyone that didn’t give a damn was Sam Worthington because Australians are very disrespectful to the British.”
We also caught up with Joe who shared why he thinks this film is a must see. “It’s a great date movie. There’s a lot of blood and guts and you’re going to have your date grabbing your arm scared,” And as for how much of Manganiello’s body we will catch?
“My character doesn’t own a pair of sleeves,” he revealed. Hey, we will take it.
Sabotage hits theaters on March 28th.
