I miss Taran Killam. Saturday Night Live has found itself in the spotlight because of the insane political climate we’re living in right now, but to me, the show has felt like it’s been missing something without his buoyant presence. While it seems like the comedian has disappeared off the face of the earth for moment, there’s good news: he’s been making his feature directorial debut on a film called Why We’re Killing Gunther, in which he co-stars with a little-known Austrian actor named Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The action-comedy doesn’t have distribution yet, but it’s being sold at Cannes right now and a first look image has been released. Grab your own handgun and join the standoff below.

Arnold Schwarzenegger in Maggie

In between his attempts to revive his signature action franchises, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been flexing his dramatic muscles.

Schwarzenegger will play a hitman who becomes the target in Why We’re Killing Gunther, the directorial debut of Saturday Night Live star Taran Killam. Also starring will be Cobie Smulders (The Avengers), Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), and Randall Park (The Interview).  Read More »
