Peter Stormare is in negotiations to join Arnold Schwarzenegger in Lionsgate’s The Last Stand, reports Variety.

To be directed by Kim Jee-Woon, the action film is scheduled for a release on January 18, 2013.

Schwarzenegger plays the sheriff of a sleepy little town who runs up against an escaped drug cartel leader heading for the Mexican border.

The trade says that Stormare is in talks to play Burrell, a seasoned war veteran who carries out the main villain’s orders and leads an eight-man crew in taking on Schwarzenegger and his fellow officers.
