Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about 'Cry Macho' in EW's exclusive interview

Four weeks ago, Entertainment Weekly spoke with Arnold Schwarzenegger in an exclusive cover story about his return to the world of showbiz after his two terms as governor of California. In the midst of that conversation, we asked him what his next project was likely to be — other than The Governator, the animated series he is making with famed comic book guru Stan Lee. His answer: Cry Macho, a project that cropped up again today in another report touting the film as his next project, with Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) reportedly attached to direct. Here’s what Schwarzenegger had to say about Cry Macho in EW’s April 8 cover story

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Has there been anything you’ve read recently, any script, that you’ve really liked? Aside from The Governator, what’s the next thing we’re likely to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in?
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER: You will be amazed, but I am going to answer your question. Cry Macho. It’s a little movie that got my attention because it is so opposite of what you’d expect someone like me to do. 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. And it becomes a movie about  the relationship between the boy, who never had a parent that cared about him, and this horse trainer. I don’t know if that will be my next movie, but it could be. It’s a really wonderful story. (Reporting by Benjamin Svetkey)

    Just what all his fans want to see. Arnold the horse trainer.

      just what illegal aliens in California want to see—arnold in Mexico.


    Loved Arnie as the Terminator, because just like the Lake House superstar, Arnie’s commendably robotic performances as the Terminator itself really got us all believing he was a real droid in those flicks. : )

    The above Taurus-sheet aside, wising him well and that Cry Macho, if deal done, wouldn’t turn out to be just another action flick; no hatred but I think he’s too old for it and the kids (teens) out there, too. Just say’n.

    A cute movie set in heroin-dealing, mass-murdering, corrupt cops, Mexico!

    Hey, kids, be sure to go to Mexico on your own after seeing this cute movie.

    Former California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger needs to do more dramas rather than just doing huge action blockbusters again because he pigeonholed himself as an actor who just did action movies. He is an underrated actor. So, I hope that he does more dramas, tries to reach his full potential as an actor and tries to win an Oscar.

    Well, after this weekend, I’d say with the success of “Fast Five”, I think Universal or some studio, will want Terminator 5 made (idk why no one has considered Vin Deisel for a Terminator 5 role).

    After T5, I’d like to see Arnold take on more serious roles, esp now he’s much older. I’m more curious to see him be in With “Wings as Eagles”, before any other project.
