New York: Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger who was set to make his acting comeback with 'Cry Macho' has put his dreams on hold to deal with the difficulties in his personal life.

Arnold split with his wife of 25 years Maria Shriver after confessing that he fathered a child more than a decade ago with their former housekeeper.

The 'Terminator' star had been tipped to return to the big screen in 'Cry Macho', a road movie about a down-on-his-luck horse breeder tricked into travelling to Mexico to kidnap his boss's young son.

The movie is presently on hold along with his TV cartoon and comic book ‘The Governator’ by Stan Lee. Other projects also are on hold.

Schwarzenegger's lawyer, Patrick Knapp, said in a statement that all plans for new films are suspended, reported a news website.

"At the request of Arnold Schwarzenegger we asked Creative Artists Agency to inform all his motion picture projects currently under way or being negotiated to stop planning until further notice," Knapp said.

Schwarzenegger was scheduled to start production in August on his first movie since leaving the governor's office in January.
The comeback plans will resume "when Governor Schwarzenegger decides," Knapp said.

Other projects in the development stages included action movie 'The Last Stand' and Korean director Kim Ji-woon's English language directorial debut.
