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.
