Arnold Schwarzenegger adds another action film to his calendar with David Ayer's Ten.

05.07.2012

Arnold Schwarzenegger's plate continues to fill up as he has signed on for yet another action flick, called TEN, this time from director David Ayer (HARSH TIMES, END OF WATCH).  Based on a script by Skip Woods (SWORDFISH), the story revolves around the members of an elite DEA task force who depart from their usual operations and steal millions from a drug cartel safe house. Just when the team thinks they got away with it, someone begins to take out them out one by one. 

It sounds compelling enough, but I'm more intrigued by Arnold teaming up with Ayer, a kind of a dark and violent filmmaker who typically deals in the harsher side of humanity, especially within the ranks of law enforcement.  It would be cool to see Arnold take on a role that doesn't paint him as the perfect hero, but rather as a flawed, possibly corrupt character. 

TEN has been in development for quite a while, originally slated to star Bruce Willis with director Patrick Alessandrin (DISTRICT 13: ULTIMATUM) at the helm.  Now, it appears it will find its day in the sun once Schwarzenegger completes THE LAST STAND, which is set to bow on January 18, 2013, and the currently filming THE TOMB with '80's action pal Sylvester Stallone. 

One thing is for sure: Arnold isn't wasting any time getting back up to speed.  Although he's lined up some really interesting projects, I seem to remember him really sputtering out at the tail end of his career before becoming Governor of California.  Let's hope he doesn't rush into a bunch of stagnant projects for his big comeback.  That being said, at least these first three out of the gate have a solid crew behind them.

He's back indeed.

Extra Tidbit: What creative duo would you like to see Arnold with next? Personally, I'd like to see Arnold pull director Paul Verhoeven out of whatever cave he's hiding in and give us another tongue-in-cheek, blood-spattered action/sci-fi flick. You?

Shit yeah on that tidbit.

Verhoeven has been working on some kind of lame project called Entertainment Experience back here in Holland. It's embarrassing stuff to say the least.

Coming back to do Black Book was a good move but now he should get his out of The Netherlands and return to serious work or what Dick Jones below suggested.

Extratidbit: thats a tough one

My team ups would include:

Tyler Perry-Arnie plays a millionaire who discovers he has a half bother (or brutha..y'know where this is heading, a'ight!) who he desperately tries to find a way to keep out of the family trust/inheritance. Slapstick, love, Jesus, redemption and Madea hijinks (maybe) ensue.

Terence Malick - Arnie plays a foreign doctor in some war-torn country when suddenly his aid-camp and personnel are overrun and taken hostage and it soon turns out a badly injured patient he

Terence Malick - Arnie plays a foreign doctor in some war-torn country when suddenly his aid-camp and personnel are overrun and taken hostage and it soon turns out a badly injured patient he is forced to treat is a wanted warlord! Ethics, morality, freewill, politics, etc are tossed in his face as he contemplates his decision to keep him alive or not.

Brian Singer - In this latest reboot Mr. Freeze is BACK (pun intended) and has to duke it out with the ever resourceful Batman! (Ryan Gosling)

I'm sorry but after his political stint I can't take him seriously anymore.

Yeah, go ahead I'm waiting.....

Re: Tidbit

I think Arnie should work with P.T. Anderson for some reason. I know it's a very weird combo, but imagine Anderson doing HIS version of a Ra-Ra 80's style action movie.
