Arnold Schwarzenegger Counts To Ten
A new thriller from David Ayer

Arnold Schwarzenegger Counts To Ten

While David Ayer has become something of a cop drama / thriller specialist, he has worked in other genres, including writing the scripts for U-571 and The Fast And The Furious. Now he’s targeting the Drug Enforcement Agency with Ten, which Arnold Schwarzenegger is attached to star in.

Ten finds an elite DEA strike team assembling to raid a drug cartel’s safe house. But while it appears above board, the action is actually the cover-up for the theft of millions in illegal merchandise.

The team members (including, we assume, Schwarzenegger, unless he’s playing the big villain) think they’ve gotten away with it, but then they’re picked off one by one…

Ayer isn’t actually writing this one – that job went to A-Team scribe Skip Woods. And Woods is connected to another upcoming Schwarzenegger project, Black Sands, which has Act Of Valour’s Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh directing. That’ll see the Austrian Oak as a loner who battles a weapons manufacturer and his private army in the southwest US.

Schwarzenegger will next be seen in The Expendables 2, due here on August 17, followed by Last Stand, which is out on January 18. Ayer’s latest, End Of Watch, just launched a trailer.
