LOS ANGELES (AP) - The animated series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a superhero is officially on hold.
“In light of recent events, A Squared Entertainment, POW, Stan Lee Comics, and Archie Comics, have halted production” on the project, the companies said in a written statement. There is no word when or if production on the planned TV series, comic book, movie and video game will resume.
“The Governator” is to star Schwarzenegger as a superhero living a double life: A family man and former governor who secretly fights global villainy and modern-day disasters alongside a team of hip teenagers.
Schwarzenegger said Thursday that he was postponing his movie projects. He acknowledged earlier this week that he fathered a child out of wedlock more than a decade ago and neglected to tell wife Maria Shriver until this year. The couple announced their separation last week.
The former movie star and California governor was also set to star in the film “Cry Macho” and in talks for more “Terminator” sequels. Producers of “Cry Macho” did not respond to a call seeking comment. Annapurna Films declined to comment Friday about the future of the “Terminator” franchise.
