Sam Worthington may join Arnold Schwarzenegger in Ten

Sam Worthington is currently in talks to join Arnold Schwarzenegger in David Ayer's action-thriller, TEN. Actually, Worthington is all for being in the film as long as they can see eye to eye on the financials.

The film follows, "an elite DEA task force that robs a dangerous drug cartel under the guise of a tactical raid on one of its safe houses. They think they've gotten away with millions in merch, until team members begin getting bumped off one by one." The script was written by Skip Woods (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE). The loose adaptation of Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians" is said to be a little more "testosterone-heavy" than its novel counterpart. I'd say so.

There was a previous film adaptation released in 1965 starring Hugh O'Brian, Shirley Eaton, and Fabian minus the DEA task force and drug cartel. That story for that film, which is closer to the material, goes like this: "Up to a house high on a mountain top have been invited ten people who are strangers to each other. When they are all gathered, they hear from their host that each one of them has in someway caused the death of an innocent person and that justice had not be served in their cases. There are eight guests and two servants there for the weekend, but one by one, they are being knocked off according to the poem of "Ten Little Indians". As the number of survivors decreases, they begin to believe that the killer is one of the group, but are unable to decide on which one he or she may be."

If you got to see THE DARK KNIGHT RISES over the weekend, then you got the chance to see a trailer for Ayer's END OF WATCH with Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peņa in the lead. Ayer also wrote the script for TRAINING DAY and THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS.

Extra Tidbit: Opinions of the trailer for END OF WATCH? Some of the camera work made me a little dizzy, but other than that it looks good.

Actually the 1945 adaptation titled AND THEN THERE WERE NONE is the most acclaimed one....

And it was a damned good one too, but without the original grim tone or ending of the book. Come to think of it, I'd much rather have a STRAIGHT adaptation of the novel....As it is my most favorite Heart pounding, Pulse throbbing Thriller book of all time, and curiously never had a straightforward proper dark adaptation, though there're several "loosely" adapted ones. This movie right now just sounds like a big 'meh' to me, unless it can be executed perfectly, like the similiarly inspired

Sounds good but I hope it has a bit of edge to it because a lot of movies that revolve around drug are down-right dull. And Sammy boy needs another hit under his belt!!

Anybody know Worthington's quote?

He got paid peanut for his films that made money and his few attempts at being a leading man outside of franchises have sorely underperformed at the box office.

So I guess his appearance alongside an Arnold body double with a digital face replacement wasn't enough for him - upgrade! "Ten Little Indians" as a crazy action flick? could be cool.
