Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the big screen with CRY MACHO; TERMINATOR 5 not his next film

CRY MACHO. It sounds like something you would hear Arnold Schwarzenegger yell at a bunch of kindergarden kids. But, no, it is potentially the title of the actor-turned-governor-turned-actor's next film.

From director Brad Furman (THE LINCOLN LAWYER) penned by late novelist and screenwriter N. Richard Nash, MACHO is a project that Schwarzenegger has actually been attached to for quite some time (see also: a decade). Production is planned for this summer, should the producers find the financing their looking for at Cannes this month. The story centers around a washed up horse trainer that gets mixed up in a kidnapping scheme for his ex-boss, in which the man must abduct his boss' 11-year-old son from his rich ex-wife. Turns out, she doesn't want the kid anyway. I wonder if Edward Furlong is available and could play young?

Speaking of Eddie Furlong, Latino Review got a scoop on TERMINATOR 5, which supposedly is going under the title TERMINATOR 2012, alluding to the fact that the film will somewhat take place in the present day (it is time travel after all). The big news (see also: rumor) in this is that the “entire original cast” along with Arnold is attached to the film. Who that includes is not specified but I would assume that means at least Linda Hamilton and possibly Furlong, maybe even Michael Biehn and/or Robert Patrick.

Director Justin Lin's (FAST FIVE) name has been attached to the film much by his own accord, while it is rumored that Universal, Sony, Lionsgate, and CBS amongst others are eyeing the property.
