While Arnold Schwarzenegger may be best-known for serious roles in Predator, Total Recall, and the Terminator movies, he was just as adept as comedy. For the first time in two decades, he’ll be gunning for laughs again.

Why We’re Killing Gunther will be an action-comedy written, directed by, and co-starring Saturday Night Live‘s Taran Killam.

The story follows cocky assassin Gunther (Schwarzenegger) who ostracizes his team of fellow hitmen to the point they decide to take him out. What they don’t count on is Gunther being one step ahead of them at every turn.

Joining Schwarzenegger and Killam in the cast are Cobie Smulders, Bobby Moynihan, Randall Park, Kumail Nanjiani, and Paul Brittain.

Why We’re Killing Gunther will follow earlier Schwarzenegger comedies Twins, Kindergarten Cop, True Lies, Junior, and Jingle All the Way.

Filming is set to begin in June.
