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”.

“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.
