Film News: Arnold Schwarzenegger is Back in Open Road’s ‘Ten’
CHICAGO – Arnold Schwarzenegger promised moviegoers, “I’ll be back.” He makes his on-screen leading man return in filmmaker David Ayer’s action thriller “Ten”. Ayer’s writing credits include 2001 hit film “Training Day”, which earned an Academy Award for Denzel Washington. He will also appear in this Summer’s “The Expendables 2.”
Schwarzenegger’s character in “Ten” is part of an elite DEA task force that strategizes a typical raid until someone begins assassinating them one by one, according to Open Road Films.
“I am really excited about this project and the team that’s come together,” said Schwarzenegger via press release. “David Ayer is incredibly talented and exactly what I want for a story this compelling.”
Open Road Films provides a sneak peek saying the action unfolds through footage from handheld and surveillance cameras, giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy.
The release date is yet to be announced.
