(Newser) – Arnold Schwarzenegger says he's holding off on his Hollywood comeback in the wake of his split with Maria Shriver, reports the Los Angeles Times. "We asked Creative Artists Agency to inform all his motion picture projects currently underway or being negotiated to stop planning until further notice," said a statement from his entertainment advisers. "This includes Cry Macho, the Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration."

Cry Macho producer Albert Ruddy told the LAT yesterday that shooting was still set to begin in late August, and it was unclear whether that might change. In the movie, Schwarzenegger is to play a horse breeder who battles depression and alcoholism.
