Arnold Schwarzenegger's next role: Horse trainer in 'Cry Macho'




It looks like we can finally quit wondering what Arnold Schwarzenegger will do to mark his return to Hollywood. No, no, he won't be returning as the Terminator right away. More like a horse trainer who becomes a kidnapper. Wait, what?

New York magazine says Arnie has picked a flick called Cry Macho to be his next project. It's about a horse trainer forced into retirement who needs money, so he kidnaps his boss' 11-year-old son from the guy's rich ex-wife as a favor for the guy who fired him. Except, see, the mother doesn't want the kid back. So it's like Ruthless People meets Raw Deal meats Mr. Ed. Or something.

The movie is based on a 1975 novel by N. Richard Nash, who died in 2000 after writing the screenplay. Schwarzenegger was apparently attached to it about a decade ago, but his whole role as governor of California got in the way. He plans to start shooting this summer, right after they find financing. If they find financing. We can only hope.
