Sam Worthington to Team with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Thriller Ten
07.24.12 by Ryan
Since leaving the office, Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to action movies by going back-to-back on a couple projects, first shooting for a few days on The Expendables 2 and then a larger role in the upcoming action-thriller The Last Stand. Schwarzenegger started shooting The Tomb with Expendables co-star and good pal Sylvester Stallone in May, and is also attached to star in the action-thriller Ten for director David Ayer (End of Watch, Dark Blue), which has another new lead attached — Sam Worthington.
Variety reports Worthington has an offer he is likely to accept to appear in Ten, which is loosely based on Agatha Christie's 1939 novel Ten Little Indians. In Ayer's version, written by Skip Woods (The A-Team, A Good Day to Die Hard), Schwarzenegger and Worthington play members of an elite DEA task force that rob a dangerous drug cartel and think they have gotten away with the crime until members start getting killed one by one.
While both actors have worked with director James Cameron, they just missed each other in the Terminator franchise (Roland Kickinger doubled as the body of the T-101 with Schwarzenegger's head added via CGI) so this would be the first time the two actors have officially worked together.
