Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a deal to write a memoir dealing with his careers as a bodybuilder, actor and politician.
The former California governor and estranged husband of Maria Shriver signed the deal with Simon & Schuster for Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Schwarzenegger will collaborate on the book with Peter Petre, who has worked on best-sellers by former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and Persian Gulf War General Norman Schwarzkopf. The publisher promises the memoir will be "a larger-than-life portrait of his illustrious, controversial and ever-entertaining life in and out of the public eye."
Schwarzenegger, 64, recently decided to return to acting after taking a career break in the wake of his separation from Maria Shriver and the scandalous revelation that he fathered a child with a member of the family's household staff. He will reportedly be working on the book while filming The Expendables 2 with Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis.
