Have you heard about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s recent troubles? He secretly fathered a child with a member of his household staff ten years ago, and when he told his wife about it, she left him! And now it’s having a toll on his acting career as well, which of course includes the various comeback projects he’s promised us lately. Here’s a bit of his statement, which emerged naked from a ball of electric energy:

“Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes ‘Cry Macho‘, The ‘Terminator‘ franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides.”

There it is. I don’t know what this means for the long-term future of these projects – maybe Schwarzenegger will be able to stage a comeback-comeback from his first failed attempt at a comeback.

Wanna know why Arnold Schwarzenegger left politics? It’s all about the math. As The Governator – the real one, not the ridiculous cartoon version – he left the state with a deficit of around $25 billion dollars. However, to play a horse breeder in the upcoming film Cry Macho, Schwarzenegger will earn $12.5 million dollars. Preside over billions lost or collect a check for multi-millions? After thinking about it for awhile, I know I would also respectably choose the latter.

The deal with financier QED International gives Arnold the big payday, plus 25% of the first dollar gross. QED will sell the worldwide distribution rights at Cannes. So: money, money, money.

In Cry Macho, Schwarzenegger plays a Kentucky Derby-winning horse breeder whose life turns to figurative horse shit. The only way he can keep his job is to kidnap the boss’ son from his ex-wife’s mansion in Mexico. Yeah, I think we’ve all been there, am I right? I guess we’ll have to see if this movie gallops to the front on the box office, so Schwarzenegger gets to keep his old job of starring in movies. (Deadline)

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)
