But after his wife and child are killed, he turns to kidnapping. Brad Furman The Lincoln Lawyer) will direct, and Schwarzenegger will receive $12.5 million as well as a percentage of the gross, an impressive take for man who it seemed like went into politics in part because his movie career had stalled.
