I suppose, depending on how you take silly digital creations, that Sam Worthington and Arnold Schwarzenegger were both in Terminator Salvation. Who wants to talk about that movie, though?
So let’s give them the chance to wipe their slate clean and make this first real collaboration something worthwhile, shall we? Variety reports that the Australian and the Austrian are hoping to create an onscreen pairing in David Ayer‘s new film, Ten, which the former governor signed for back in May. Two and a half months the later, Worthington has full plans to join when the right financial deals snap into place.
Skip Woods (A Good Day to Die Hard, Wolverine) wrote the film, a “testosterone-heavy riff on Agatha Christie‘s ‘Ten Little Indians’” about a drug-busting group of DEA agents whose attempted robbing of a drug cartel leads to the systemic, one-by-one disposal of its members. Open Road Films will distribute, QED International are financing, and Roth Films (Snow White and the Huntsman) are producing.
Back in May, we had heard that Ten would actually be an ensemble — the nature of its main assemblage would make that possibility pretty easy to fulfill — so expect some more big names to come in over the next couple of weeks and months. In the meantime, I like the manly-but-not-too-dumb approach Ten is taking at the moment.
Are Worthington and Schwarzenegger a good start for Ten? Is there anyone you hope to see climb aboard?

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
