Arnold Schwarzenegger seems to be everywhere lately. We just saw him in The Expendables 2, and we’ve seen the trailer for The Last Stand, and an image of the actor alongside Sylvester Stallone in The Tomb. Oh, and then there was that little The Legend of Conan news break earlier today.
And now we’ve got the first pic of Arnie in yet another new film: Ten, once called Breacher, from David Ayer (End of Watch). Schwarzenegger appears alongside Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, and Malin Akerman, playing part of an elite drug-busting DEA task force. It’s the most overtly military look for Schwarzenegger in some time; he looks like a pretty serious hardass here. Check out a full pic below. Read More »
Avatar star Sam Worthington has had two films in theaters this year, Wrath of the Titans and Man on a Ledge, but it feels like he’s been relatively low-profile, especially after the dual push of Terminator: Salvation and James Cameron’s mega-hit.
He does have a couple projects in the pipeline, however, including the Avatar sequels. The latest one would put him on screen with the original Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in a film called Ten directed by Training Day writer and End of Watch wrter/director David Ayer. Read More »
Last week we saw a trailer for End of Watch, the film Training Day writer David Ayer wrote and directed with Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena, Anna Kendrick and America Ferrera starring. Now we’ve got word that Ayer’s next film will be Ten, a ‘cops and drugs’ thriller written by Skip Woods (The A-Team, A Good Day to Die Hard). To star, Ayer has lined up Arnold Schwarzenegger, who in the post-political phase of his career has been energetically making one deal after another to make new films. Read More »
It’s been a rough few years for Joel Schumacher — rougher than most for the director who is often lambasted for his Batman films, regardless of the fact that he’s made a couple of solid pictures since then. He bombed with the Jim Carrey film The Number 23 in 2007, then saw Blood Creek dumped in dollar theaters, and Twelve was critically savaged as one of the worst films of 2010.
Now he’s in post-production on the potentially more satisfying Trespass, which stars Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Cam Gigandet and Ben Mendelsohn. And he’s now set to direct a new thriller called The Hive. Read More »
Briefly: The mid-budget film Ten got off the ground today, getting around $30m of funding from QED and Norton Herrick so that Patrick Allesandrin (District 13: Ultimatum) can direct Bruce Willis, working from a script by Skip Woods. One interesting point here is that Allesandrin was until just recently set to direct Kane & Lynch, which is also meant to star Willis. Allesandrin walked, and last we heard Willis was still attached to the picture.
With the search for a new director still under way, Willis probably won’t have to worry about Kane & Lynch in the next few months. So, there’s Ten. We don’t have story details, but Deadline calls it a drama. That’s also interesting, given that Skip Woods is the guy with script credits on Swordfish, Hitman, Wolverine and The A-Team. Plenty of writers for big studio fare have their own more treasured scripts that fall outside genre territory. Maybe this is one of those. Ten shoots in December.
