Earlier this week, we reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger will return to The Terminator franchise, although now it seems that won't be his next movie. A new report indicates the former California governor will star in Cry Macho as his first film out of office.

Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) will direct this drama from his own screenplay, which is adapted from the N. Richard Nash novel of the same name. The story centers on a horse trainer who is fired by his boss and ends up agreeing to kidnap his boss' 11-year-old son from his Mexican ex-wife. The story takes an unexpected turn, though, when the ex-wife is happy to be rid of the young boy.

Albert S. Ruddy will produce the drama, and it is said the producer almost had Arnold Schwarzenegger attached to star over a decade ago. Albert S. Ruddy is teaming up with producer Bill Block (District 9), and they will seek financing at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

It is said that Cry Macho will start production sometime this summer, after financing is secured.

    If this movie is as good as The Lincoln Lawyer then I can't wait to see it. It may even help Arnold out with more serious roles for his acting future.

    Cry Macho may seem to be a good move for Arine but I understand that he wants to do roles good for his age just like Clint Eastwood but maybe after this, he should do a larger role in The Expendables 2 then do Terminator 5 and maybe do good acting roles but that's my opnion.

    @pjwolsker Yeah. Last Stand sounds good but this one just sounds odd; especially if he's the lead. The lead role just sounds like something meant for a younger actor. and as for Terminator 5, who knows what to expect.
