Arnold Schwarzenegger will “Cry Tough” before “Terminator”

By Sean O’Connell Looks like we’re putting those “Terminator” rumors on hold for the time being.

While Arnold Schwarzenegger still plans a return to acting now that he’s closed the political chapter of his professional career, he will not be resurrecting his most famous character for a fifth “Terminator” film, as was previously discussed. At least, not yet.

Instead, it was announced that Schwarzenegger has circled “Cry Tough” as his first project out of the gate, a drama about a horse trainer who, because he’s down on his luck, accepts a job kidnapping a young child.

Al Ruddy, an Oscar winner for both “The Godfather” and “Million Dollar Baby,” will produce the film, while “Lincoln Lawyer” director Brad Furman has been hired to direct, THR reports.

“I guarantee that you’ll get another look at Arnold Schwarzenegger in this movie,” Ruddy said. “Arnold always plays these big muscular guys, but there’s a sweetness to Arnold in real life, and we want to bring that sweetness to the screen. Now that Brad’s met with Arnold, he’s convinced there’s an accessibility and vulnerability there that he wants to bring out.”
