Amazon Western Series Outrider to Star Arnold Schwarzenegger

"Get to the horse!"

By Robert Marrujo:: Amazon's really been stepping up its game as a streamer of original television content. Between word of the company working on a Lord of the Rings adaptation and a Conan the Barbarian series, now it's come down that Amazon is also developing a Western. Not just any Western, though: this one will be starring Arnold Schwarzenegger!

The show is called Outrider and will, according to Deadline, also be produced by the former Governator. Outrider will be set in Oklahoma in the late 1800s, with Arnold cast as a Federal Marshall working with a local deputy to take down an outlaw. A variety of actions by the cast will place various characters on the fringes of morality, making the audience question what exactly it means to be a "hero" or "good guy." There will also be shifting alliances to keep track of, as well.

No talk of a release window just yet, but we'll keep you posted!
