Governator and sugarcone demolisher, Arnold Schwarzenegger has deemed Cry Macho worthy enough to be his first film following his political career. He is still in early stilted, Austrian-accented talks but the expectation is that he will begin shooting this summer.
Based on something called a “book,” Arnie will play “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.”
Umm, what? Stuff is still going to blow up though, right? He needs to blow some stuff up. Maybe he finds out that the boy he kidnaps is actually the key to humanity’s salvation after the horses rise and start riding us instead. I definitely expect to see him battling oppressive horse overlords. They should put this footage in the Blu-Ray deleted scenes at the very least. (Vulture)
