A memoir of former California governor and Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger will be published next fall by Simon and Schuster. Simon and Schuster has already picked a title: “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.”

Schwarzenegger's colorful life has included stints as a bodybuilder, a politician and an actor. Most recently he's returned to acting, reviving his movie career with “Cry Macho,” a film that comes with an initial payment of $10 million and more upon completion.

The publishing house has teamed Schwarzenegger with writer Peter Petre, who’s worked on bestsellers by former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan and others.

The former governor’s marriage fell apart this year after it became known he had fathered a child with a former housekeeper about 10 years ago. Simon and Schuster hasn’t said how much the memoir will divulge about the end of Schwarzenegger's marriage.
