We were curious what the outcome of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s meeting with director Shane Black about appearing as Dutch in The Predator. Now, thanks to an interview with Yahoo!(via AVPGalaxy) Arnold has confirmed he won’t be involved.
“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered. So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.”
Director Shane Black commented on the statement via Twitter and suggested the role size was an issue with Arnold, not so much the script.
