In addition to “Cry Macho” and “Terminator 5”, Schwarzenegger has also been linked to “The Last Stand” and “The Tomb”. “Cry Macho” is based on a 1975 novel written by the late N. Richard Nash and directed by Brad Furman (director of “The Lincoln Lawyer”). “Cry Macho” will require Schwarzenegger to flex his acting muscles (assuming he has any). He would play a damaged-goods horse trainer who gets fired and then kidnaps his boss’s son in exchange for retirement money.
Chances are good that Schwarzenegger will make “Cry Macho”, “The Tomb” or “The Last Stand” before “Terminator 5” since the script hasn’t been written for that film yet and Schwarzenegger and Lin are still trying to find a studio for the project. I’m not sure if a serious film is the right comeback vehicle for Schwarzenegger but he may prove me wrong.
