A movie about the founders of the International Federation of Bodybuilding is set to be released in 2018.
Entitled Bigger, the movie centers around brothers Joe and Ben Weider and how they pioneered the sport of bodybuilding.
One of the main aspects of that story is how the Weider brothers discovered a young Austrian man by the name of Arnold Schwarzenegger. They brought him over to the states, and the rest — as we all know — is history!
Recently, the role of Arnold was filled by the young professional bodybuilder, Calum Von Moger.
Calum has over 2 million followers on Instagram, but that’s not just because of his great bodybuilding content and otherworldly physique.
Much of it has to do with his followers realizing how much he resembles Arnold. He’s even known in many circles as “Schwarzenegger 2.0!”
And it turns out that the resemblance is uncanny enough for casters in Hollywood, too. Calum posted a couple of photos on his Instagram that confirmed what many had been waiting for: he will be playing Arnold on the big screen!

The film, Bigger — set to be released in 2018 — centers around brothers Joe and Ben Weider, the fathers of modern bodybuilding.
The Weider brothers were responsible for bringing Arnold Schwarzenegger into the spotlight and, recently, the role of the bodybuilding icon for the movie was cast!
Meet 27-year-old Calum Von Moger, a professional and champion bodybuilder from Australia.
Calum — who has a huge following on Instagram — posted a photo with the caption: “Training for something different. Who can guess what?”
He then revealed that he had been cast as a young Arnold Schwarzenegger in Bigger.
This news arrived to the absolute delight of his fans, who had dubbed him “Schwarzenegger 2.0,” and it’s not hard to see why.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is often considered the greatest bodybuilder of all time, and Calum will try to do him justice in the film — his first foray into acting.
Luckily for Calum, he bears an uncanny resemblance to a young Arnold!
Do you see the similarities between Arnold and Arnold 2.0?
Though they come from two different schools of bodybuilding, they definitely have a common look!
And it seems like the Austrian Oak himself already gave Calum some pointers for the role!
So what do you think? Is Calum the perfect casting choice to play Arnold Schwarzenegger?
