‘Cry Macho’: Arnold Schwarzenegger Gets Huge Payday For New Film
Before he gets back to Terminating, Arnold Schwarzenegger is going soft. And he’ll be crying all the way to the bank.
Schwarzenegger is set to star in the film “Cry Macho,” and will make a pretty penny for his big screen comeback. Deadline’s Nikke Finke reports that the movie star turned Governor turned movie star again will play a Kentucky Derby-winning horse breeder who sinks to depression and alcoholism after losing his wife and kids.
A deal is being worked out, Finke reports, that will pay Schwarzenegger $10 million upfront and 25% first dollar gross on the back end. For his first major film since 2003, it’s an impressive package.
