Hi Bryan Here…

So far Arnold Schwarzenegger has agreed to do his “Governator” persona for the kids in the form of comics, a tv series, and a movie.  Add to that the most recently announced “Terminator 5 film.  And in the past, Arnold has talked about finding more appropriate roles for himself for an aging action star.  Well according to Vulture, this is happening sooner than later. The new film it looks like Arnold will be attached to is called “Cry Macho”.

Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) is attached to direct the film which is based on a novel by N. Richard Nash who also wrote the screenplay before he died.

The film is about ” a damaged-goods horse trainer who’s just been ignominiously put out to pasture by his feckless boss. In exchange for some retirement money, the broken — and broke — horseman agrees to kidnap the boss’s 11-year-old son from his rich Mexican ex-wife. Things take an unexpected turn, however, when the ex-wife is all too glad to be rid of her juvenile delinquent.”

It seems like this would be a film for Arnold in the shape he is in right now.  This sounds like that 1994 film “A Perfect World” with Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood.  It will be interesting to see how this turns out and if Arnold will start to do more low key films.  This will be happening before the next Terminator film.

I can’t help but think about that amazing Critic episode where it showed Arnold and Sylvester Stallone in a romantic independent film.

Movie Quotes

The Godfather (1972)
[first lines]
Bonasera:
I believe in America. America has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the American fashion. I gave her freedom, but I taught her never to dishonor her family. She found a boyfriend; not an Italian. She went to the movies with him; she stayed out late. I didn't protest. Two months ago, he took her for a drive, with another boyfriend. They made her drink whiskey. And then they tried to take advantage of her. She resisted. She kept her honor. So they beat her, like an animal. When I went to the hospital, her nose was a'broken. Her jaw was a'shattered, held together by wire. She couldn't even weep because of the pain. But I wept. Why did I weep? She was the light of my life beautiful girl. Now she will never be beautiful again. I went to the police, like a good American. These two boys were brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three years in prison - suspended sentence. Suspended sentence! They went free that very day! I stood in the courtroom like a fool. And those two bastards, they smiled at me. Then I said to my wife, for justice, we must go to Don Corleone.
