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.

Fans of the 1983 classic Scarface likely weren't too pleased to hear in September that Universal Pictures was planning a "new version" of the movie, probably in the same way fans of the 1932 version of Scarface were upset in 1983. No script was in place for the new Scarface, though, reportedly, the latest version will again follow an immigrant who comes to the United States and falls from grace during his search for the American dream.
Universal has finally settled on a screenwriter. Deadline reports that David Ayer (Training Day) has been hired to write the script which won't exactly be about an Italian immigrant named Tony who becomes a crime boss in Chicago or a Cuban immigrant named Tony who becomes a drug kingpin in Miami, but likely will be about an immigrant from somewhere named Tony. For his part, Ayer is pleased with the job, which, he admits, he "sought out". ayer talks about his plans for Scarface >> Posted 12.01.11 by Ryan
