Arnold Schwarzenegger is busier now than he was as governor. The 65-year-old ex-politician has taken on several movie roles. His late career comeback has many fans waiting for the big screen blockbusters to see if Arnold still has what it takes to be a superhero and save the day.
Schwarzenegger has taken on roles in “The Expendables 2” which will set him up for the larger role he takes on in “The Last Stand.”
Now he has signed on to take part in “Ten,” an action-thriller that he will ready for once he has finished his part in filming the current project, “The Tomb” (co-starring Stallone).
“Ten” is penned by Skip Woods of “Die Hard 5” fame. Open Road Films will be behind the project and has David Ayer at the helm.
Plot details came through for “Ten” with a recent press release:
In “Ten,” an elite DEA task force 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.
Schwarzenegger states he is excited about the project and about the team that has come together to work on the film. He claims David Ayer is incredibly talented and exactly what he would like to see for a story this compelling.
The plot is compelling. “Ten” seems to be one of Arnold’s largest films he will work on for the upcoming movies he has laid out. “The Legend of Conan” will of course be up there with “Ten,” although this project appears to have a more intriguing story.
Watch for “Ten” in theaters in 2014. Arnold has said it time and time again. I guess he meant what he said.
I’ll be back.
