Arnold Schwarzenegger Writing a Memoir

Well, he's certainly got plenty of material. He was governor for eight years, he's paid his dues in the entertainment industry, and he made a career out of bodybuilding. Oh right, and he had sex with his maid, impregnated her and then hid it from his wife for thirteen years.

Simon and Schuster will be publishing Arnold Schwarzenegger's memoir, a book tentatively titled: Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story. If we're gonna go with cheesy movie titles, why not choose something even more appropriate? Like Predator. Or True Lies.

Arnold's spokesman, Adam Mendelsohn, told PEOPLE:

"He has been keeping notes and working on the book for over a year. He didn't want to write his autobiography while he was governor."

Yeah, yeah, governor. Just how much of that epic sex scandal is this book going to cover? Maybe none. His spokesperson would not disclose how much, if any, of the book will focus on Arnold's divorce from Maria Shriver. According to PEOPLE, a source says it's definitely not going to be tell-all.

The publishing house released the following statement:

"Truly, Arnold is one of the most fascinating figures of our time, and one of the greatest success stories in the world. Nobody has a life story even close to this."

Arnold has two projects in pre-production. He'll be making The Expendables 2 and starring in Last Stand, set to be released in 2013.

And speaking of IMDB pages, Schwarzenegger's son, Patrick, wants to build his. The 18 year-old says he intends to follow in his father's footsteps and become an actor.

"I've wanted to do some sort of acting stuff down the line, but modeling is a good way to get comfortable in front of the camera," Patrick says. "And I want to keep my business going. I'm always thinking of new ideas and trying to find ways to expand my career opportunities."

Patrick appears in a billboard for Hudson Jeans, and addition to modeling, he also has his own clothing line—Project 360. The company helps raise money for different charities.

"My dad helps me a lot with my business side, and my mom and my grandparents [the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Sargent Shriver] had a huge influence with the charitable component and the idea of giving back," Patrick says. "I've learned everything from them."
