Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is making his comeback to both small and big screens through a TV series and new Terminator movie, has zeroed in on another film titled Cry Macho. According to sources, the former California governor will play a horse trainer in the movie, which will be produced by Godfather fame Al Ruddy and Lincoln Lawyer fame Brad Furman.
The movie Cry Macho is a drama, which revolves around a kidnap attempt on an 11-year-old boy that goes awry. Arnold Schwarzenegger will play the kidnapper, a grizzled, alcoholic former-jockey turned down-on-his-luck horse breeder, who is hired to kidnap a boy. The film is based on a 1975 novel by N Richard Nash, who adapted it into a screenplay himself back in 2000.
"I guarantee that you'll get another look at Arnold Schwarzenegger in this movie. Arnold always plays these big muscular guys, but there's a sweetness to Arnold in real life, and we want to bring that sweetness to the screen. Now that Brad's met with Arnold, he's convinced there's an accessibility and vulnerability there that he wants to bring out," the Hollywood Reporter quotes Al Ruddy as saying.
