LOS ANGELES (AP) - Arnold Schwarzenegger has added another project on his to-do list as he returns to Hollywood after serving as California governor.

Schwarzenegger spokesman Alan Mendelsohn said Thursday that the actor plans to star in the drama “Cry Macho” for Academy Award-winning producer Albert Ruddy (“The Godfather,” “Million Dollar Baby”).

It’s one of several projects Schwarzenegger has in the works, including a “Terminator” tale and the crime saga “The Last Stand.”

Mendelsohn said the timing has not yet been worked out among the various projects, so it’s not certain which might be Schwarzenegger’s first big-screen film after leaving the governor’s office in January.

In “Cry Macho,” Schwarzenegger would play a down-on-his-luck horse trainer hired to kidnap his former boss’ young son from his ex-wife in Mexico.
