Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined the cast of upcoming comedy film Why We’re Killing Gunther.

Schwarzenegger will portray the title role of Gunther, the world’s greatest hitman who is also arrogant, a show-off and steals jobs, reports variety.com.

The assassin community is tired of him and a group of eccentric killers from across the globe come together to set the perfect trap, but their master plan quickly turns into a series of embarrassing fails as Gunther always appears one step ahead.

The film will be directed by Taran Killam from his own script. Killam will also star in the film along with Bobby Moynihan and Cobie Smulders. Principal photography for Why We’re Killing Gunther is slated to begin in June.
