Arnold Schwarzenegger will make his acting return in 'Cry Macho'.

According to New York Magazine's blog Vulture, the 'Predator' actor has signed up to star in the movie adaptation of the novel by the late N. Richard Nash as "a damaged-goods horse trainer who's just been ignominiously put out to pasture by his feckless boss."

The description of the picture goes on to say: "In exchange for some retirement money, the broken - and broke - horseman agrees to kidnap the boss's 11-year-old son from his rich Mexican ex-wife.

"Things take an unexpected turn, however, when the ex-wife is all too glad to be rid of her Juvenile delinquent."

The 38th Governor of California is set to cash in by selling the rights to the film at Cannes and will start shooting this summer.

He is also rumoured to be starring in a fifth 'Terminator' film and is developing his own potential franchise called 'The Governator'.
