Director Scott Waugh's (Expendables 4) action-thriller, Breakout, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to film in Eastern Europe this summer. 

The film follows Terry Reynolds (Schwarzenegger), whose stepson is framed and sentenced to 25 years in a foreign country. Reynolds makes a daring jailbreak to save him and must overcome an overzealous prison warden in a race against time to avoid capture and flee the country.

Breakout marks Schwarzenegger's first film role in four years since he reprised his role as T-800 in 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate.

Richard D’Ovidio wrote the screenplay, based on a story he co-created with Nicole D’Ovidio.

Other cast members are to be announced as filming is set to start in Eastern Europe later this year.

Producers are Sebastien Raybaud and John Zois from Anton; Jeff Elliott and Chad Moore from Off the Pier Productions, Oscar nominee Cindy Cowan from Cindy Cowan Entertainment (Very Bad Things), Carsten Lorenz (Independence Day), and Danny Chan from Almost Never Films (Barbarian). Steve Ponce is executive producing. Off the Pier Productions and Cindy Cowan Entertainment developed and packaged the project.

The pic is financed and produced by UK company Anton, which is launching world sales at Cannes next month; UTA Independent Film Group is co-representing domestic rights. US firm Off The Pier Productions is also producing and financing.
