Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that he's returning to the movie business.

The former California governor has even gotten down to the task of picking his first role.

'Currently I'm reading three scripts,' News.com.au quoted Schwarzenegger as telling Kronen Zeitung, a newspaper in his native Austria.

The 63-year-old star said that he wants to do roles that fit his age.

'In the future I have to adapt to roles (for) my age. Clint Eastwood also has done it in the same way. Extreme fighting is not possible anymore,' he said.

James Bond producers are reportedly keen to sign Rachel Weisz as the spy's arch enemy in the upcoming Bond film.

The Mummy star, 40 would be head of the sinister organisation behind the villainy in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace rather than Bond''s love interest, reports The Sun.

But there are fears she could reject the role because of her alleged romance with leading man Daniel Craig.

An insider said: 'Casting Rachel was going to be a surprise twist as everyone would assume she'd be a Bond girl when really she would play a villain. But the fly in the ointment is that they are now dating.'
