Once upon a time, Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he’ll “be back” and while that was true in that film, it seems it also applied to his film career. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Arnold has agreed to star in David Ayer’s (Street Kings) action flick ‘Ten’. The original screenplay was written by Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and is being produced by Bill Block, Paul Hanson, Joe Roth, Palak Patel and Al Ruddy. Alex Ott of Ayer’s Crave Films is executive producing.
The plot: An elite DEA task force that deals with the world's deadliest drug cartels. Specializing in complex mobile operations, the team executes a tactical raid on a cartel safe house. What looks to be a typical raid turns out to be an elaborate theft operation, pre-planned by the DEA squad. After hiding millions in stolen cash, the team believes their secret is safe – until someone begins assassinating them one by one.
The former Governor has been on quite a roll recently as while he is currently filming The Tomb with Sylvester Stallone, the two of them are also starring in this summer’s Expendables 2. After that, Arnold can be seen as Sheriff Ray Owens in next January’s The Last Stand. It’s too soon to tell if audiences will shower the former megastar with boat-loads of support in the theaters. Since he’s been gone it seems that we’ve become fascinated by action figures that wear costumes, have secret identities and battle super-villians that want to destroy the world.
