Default New Schwartznegger movie based on Russian story

Not sure if you guys know, Arnold Schwartznegger has been making a new movie, "478": http://theactionelite.com/2016/01/47...#disqus_thread

It was announced last June:

Filming began in December:

And was finished in January:

What many of you probably would not realize, is that this movie is based on the real life story of a Russian (Ossetian) man, architect by trade, Vitaliy Kaloyev: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCpc2Hv5Nb8



Kaloyev indeed served several years in prison in Switzerland, but was released ealry (some say because of Russian diplomatic pressure) in 2007, some footage of his homecoming to Moscow is in the YouTube video linked above, most people here welcomed him back with jubilation, not just his fellow Ossetians, many Russians saw him as a avenger for all those Russian children who died on that plane...


Members of Putinist youth groups waved signs praising Kaloyev along the road as he was driven from the airport, as shown in the video.

He was appointed deputy minister of housing in his home republic of North Ossetia-Alania same year when he returned, and was made Man of the Year in NO-A in 2008.

Finally, just days ago, on January 15th, for his 60th birthday, Kaloyev was awarded the "Honor of Ossetia" medal, the republic's highest decoration



A reporter from Moscow was in Ossetia earlier today and met with Kaloyev, asked him, what do you feel about Arnold Schwartznegger playing you in this film? He said, I would rather have my wife and children back with me...

Indeed. Stupid question...
