There have been tons of rumors and speculation on which film project would entice ex-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger back to the big screen. No, it's not 'Terminator 5' but 'Cry Macho,' based on a 1975 novel by N. Richard Nash, who also wrote the play 'The Rainmaker,' and which has been optioned for years by 'The Godfather' and 'Million Dollar Baby' producer Al Ruddy. The enticement: $12.5 million plus 25 percent of first-dollar gross. Ruddy and Schwarzenegger will end up co-owning the negative on the film. Here's the story line, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter: "Schwarzenegger, 63, will play Mike, a once well-regarded horse trainer whose wife and son have died. His former boss makes him an over he can't refuse: $400,000 to kidnap the boss' trust fund son, who is living with the man's ex-wife in Mexico. But when Mike locates the boy, a real troublemaker, the ex-wife doesn't want the kid. But as Mike and the boy head back to the states, with the Federales are on their trail, they develop a father-son bond of their own."

Here's the latest from the ongoing saga of casting for Universal Pictures' 'Snow White and the Huntsman': Sam Claflin will play the role of the prince opposite Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the evil queen. Claflin just starred in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' and, according to Deadline, has just been offered the title role opposite Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore in Warner Bros.' supernatural thriller 'The Seventh Son.' The role of the Huntsman is still up in the air, but the No. 1 candidate currently is 'Thor' star Chris Hemsworth.
