Would Arnold Schwarzenegger Make A Convincing Kentucky Derby-Winning Horse Breeder Turned Hedge Fund Trader?

We’ll soon find out because a movie involving all that and more (depression, Mexico, murder) is actually being produced.

Al Ruddy, the 81-year-old Godfather and Million Dollar Baby filmmaker, will produce and Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) Ruddy bought the 1975 novel by the late N. Richard Nash who’d adapted it into the Cry Macho screenplay. In his heyday, Schwarzenegger was a $25M/25% first dollar gross mega-player — and one deal even threw in his own giant jet. But only the rarest of the rare get those paydays these days. This pic calls for some acting chops for Arnold as a horse breeder who won the Kentucky Derby but whose wife and child get killed. He sinks into an alcoholic depression and winds up working for a hedge fund jerk who offers him a choice of getting fired or bringing back the rich guy’s son living with the ex-wife in Mexico. Unexpected plot twists ensue, including an Arnold-and-kid road trip back home.

    First One, you´re a fool. Arnold made 100 Million $ with films, merchandise & Co, this many he invested in funds, primarily in L.A. Today his net worth is about 600 Million $. His wife was poor. The men in the Kennedy´s family were never rich, except JFK father. The women in the Kennedy family married rich, two examples are Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Maria Shriver.

    We won't know until he tries. I sure hope he's spent time centennial park horse riding just to get an idea of what he's getting into.
