Arnold Schwarzenegger to Star in David Ayer’s Ten

After spending seven years as the Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger is clearly trying to make up for lost time with his return to acting. He already has four films in the works (The Last Stand, The Expendables 2, The Tomb and Unknown Soldier) along with several other rumoured possibilities. Now he is adding yet another project to the pile as he has reportedly signed on to star in Ten, a new action movie from David Ayer (Harsh Times). The plot synopsis is as follows:

“Ten revolves around the members of an elite DEA task force who depart from their usual operations and steal millions from a drug cartel safe house. Just when the team thinks they got away with it, someone begins to take out them out one by one.”

In other words, it’s essentially yet another gritty cop drama from David Ayer, although in this case the script was actually written by Skip Woods (Swordfish, X-Men Origins: Wolverine). Patrick Alessandrin (District 13: Ultimatum) was once attached to direct with Bruce Willis starring, but for some reason it never came together. The trailer for Ayer’s latest flick End of Watch starring Jake Gyllenhaal was just released, and with Schwarznegger on board for Ten, it could end up being Ayer’s biggest film yet. Are you interested in Ten and do you think Schwarzenegger’s comeback will be a success?

Around the Web:

  • I’m just glad to see that after months of speculation, Schwarzenegger is officially endorsing Predator in his own race to become the next governor of Louisiana. Predator’s been a controversial figure over the years, but he’s helped launch so many political careers, so it’s really the right thing to do.

    What we have here is a leaked photo of Arnold’s secret meeting when the plan to become Governor was formulating. He called his good buddy the Predator to take out some opposition parties.
    Now wonder Arnie and got re-elected!!!

    On a side note, I will give Ayer the benefit of the doubt for Training Day and Street Kings did have it’s merits. This could be pretty gritty.
