David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch) and Arnold Schwarzenegger team for Sabotage, which looks like a straight-forward, foul-mouthed, head-shootin’ B-movie. Despite the fact that he has been trying to do some acting in his various recent pictures, Schwarzenegger’s return to the screen hasn’t exactly set the box office on fire. Could this movie, which teams him with a solid supporting cast, be the one? (That cast includes Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini, and Josh Holloway.)
This long red-band trailer dresses up the film’s pretty routine plot (bad-ass DEA agents get in trouble with a cartel, and the law) with a lot of cursing and violence, but thanks to Ayer’s touch it works pretty well. Check out the spot, which definitely isn’t safe for work, below. Read More »

David Ayer (Training Day writer, End of Watch director) has a great-looking WWII tank movie coming next year, called Fury. But first, he’ll open the year with a movie featuring the DEA, drug cartels, deals gone bad, and sneaky dealings that leave people dead left and right.
In Sabotage, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the leader of a DEA unit that robs a cartel and ends up in all sorts of trouble because of it. Check out a trailer below. Read More »
End of Watch director and Training Day writer David Ayer takes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, and Olivia Williams to the mean streets of Atlanta for the violent DEA story Sabotage. Arnie leads a DEA crew that gets into trouble when millions of dollars go missing after a huge cartel bust. (Or what looks like a bust, at least.) Worthington, slightly disguised with a shaved head, Enos, and Howard are part of his crew, and Williams is a local detective who is looking into cartel activity and murders.
While Schwarzenegger’s movies haven’t done big business since he really got back into the game, he was the most entertaining part of Escape Plan (he was really doing some acting, and had a great stretch of performance in German), and here he’s in super-serious mode, which could be a good time. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

This sounds familiar — Michael Bay is developing a new story idea, acting as producer, with the possibility of directing depending on how things shake out.
That’s the deal with UbiSoft’s Ghost Recon, and now for a project called Sabotage. Paramount just bought the pitch by Neal Bascomb based on his book proposal that tells the WWII story of an Allied effort to stifle Hitler’s nuclear ambitions. In short, multiple raids were carried out against a plant in Norway designed to produce “heavy water,” which would be a precursor to nuclear weaponry.
The full book title is Sabotage: A Genius Scientist, His Band of Young Commandos, and the Mission to Kill Hitler’s Super Bomb, and the book and potential film are envisioned as “gripping WWII action-thrillers.” Read More »
