The 'Predator' star has admitted he could appear in the drama movie, saying that the movie is 'really a wonderful story'.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has recently opened up about his upcoming project. After admitting he wants to return to his acting career, the former California Governor has revealed that he may make an appearance in a new drama, "Cry Macho".
Asked about what project he will likely join, the "Terminator" star told Entertainment Weekly, "You will be amazed, but I am going to answer your question. 'Cry Macho'." He later explained his reason on choosing the movie, "It's a little movie that got my attention because it is so opposite of what you'd expect someone like me to do...I don't know if that will be my next movie, but it could be. It's really a wonderful story."
Schwarzenegger also shared some details of the movie. He said, "It's about a guy who is a horse trainer. He's a little bit over-the-hill. The last two years didn't go so well. But then the owner of the horses gives him a challenge. He sends him to Mexico to get his son."
"The owner's wife cheated him out of a business and took their son, and the owner wants to pay her back, so he sends the trainer to get his kid," he went on. "And it becomes a movie about the relationship between the boy, who never had a parent that cared about him, and this horse trainer."
On the same occasion, he also talked about rumors of "True Lies" sequel as well as the next "Terminator" film. "The idea of a True Lies sequel has been around since the early 2000s, but then 9/11 happened and we didn't do it because it had to do with a terrorist attack," so he said. "A lot of terrorist-type scripts were canceled back then, but now they are emerging again because there hasn't been a terrorist attack in the last 10 years."
"Then, of course, there's dialog about me getting back into the Terminator thing. But you know, I've been out of office only two months now. I couldn't be thinking about doing Terminator 16 while I was still governor."
"Cry Macho" is a film based on a novel by N. Richard Nash, who adapted the screenplay before his death in December 2000. Al Ruddy and Bill Block serve as the producers, with Brad Furman directing. Release date is yet to be announced.
