Screenwriter:N. Richard Nash
The movie, based on the 1975 novel by the late N. Richard Nash ("The Rainmaker"), would be directed by Brad Furman. Schwarzenegger will play a damaged-goods horse trainer who's just been ignominiously put out to pasture by his feckless boss. 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.
