Arnold Schwarzenegger to star in "Cry Macho": report

Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will play the title role in upcoming drama "Cry Macho," his first movie after leaving office earlier this year, a celebrity news site reported Friday.

The actor-turned-politician, 63, is said to act as an aging horse trainer who was fired by his boss and ended up agreeing to kidnap his boss' 11-year-old son from his Mexican ex-wife, in what the Vulture called as the former governor's "first post-gubernatorial project."

The drama is based on a namesake N. Richard Nash novel and will be directed by Brad Furman, the director of crime drama "The Lincoln Lawyer." Albert S. Ruddy who made "The Godfather" and "Million Dollar Baby," and "District 9" producer Bill Block would be the co-producers. The pair will try to secure the project's financing at next month's Cannes Film Festival before the shooting could start sometime this summer, Xinhua reported.

The musculer politician is no stranger to Ruddy. The report said he was actually attached to the project even before running for governor and had to drop out. Ruddy at one point had Clint Eastwood attached to star.

Earlier this week, it is reported that Schwarzenegger will reprise his role at a sequel on the "Terminator" franchise, playing a starring role as the title character, instead of a supporting role in a sci-fi actioner, which is loosed dubbed "Terminator 5." The Creative Artists Agency has begun shopping the rights to make the movie, although no scripts have been penned.

The former governor ended his second term early January after eight years in office. He has indicated that he's interested in returning to Hollywood to pick up his acting career, but no solid information involving his next move has been confirmed.
