Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'Macho' Mega-Movie Deal


Oh, he's back all right! Free from the political arena, Arnold Schwarzenegger is heading full steam into the movie biz with his first feature, "Cry Macho."

Deadline Hollywood reported the former California governor will receive $10 million up front, and 25 percent first dollar gross on the back end -- meaning if the film's a hit, he'll make many more millions. Not too shabby for guy who's been out of the game for eight years!

The film revolves around a horse breeder (Schwarzenegger) who won the Kentucky Derby. When his wife and child are killed, he sinks into an alcoholic depression and winds up involved in an international kidnapping scheme.

Schwarzenegger's daughter, Katherine, is excited for her dad to be back on the big screen. "I think it would be fun. I'm really happy with him doing whatever he loves to do."
