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.
