Schwarzenegger comeback to be filmed in New Mexico

BELEN, N.M.

The former California governor will be filming the movie in Belen, N.M. in October, reports the Valencia County News-Bulletin.

The movie follows convicts trying to make their way to the Mexican border through New Mexico after escaping from a Las Vegas prison.

The rest of the casting for the modern-day Western will be complete in September, according to location manager Paul Roberts.

"Last Stand" marks the first major movie role /*Schwarzenegger*/ since 2003's "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." He also had a cameo in last summer's "The Expendables."

Schwarzenegger said in May that he was putting his acting projects on hold after disclosing that he fathered a child with a family housekeeper and splitting with wife Maria Shriver.
