Arnold Schwarzenegger will star in the action thriller Ten for QED International and Open Road Films. David Ayer (Harsh Times, Training Day) will direct from a script by Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, A Good Day to Die Hard).
Bruce Willis was previously attached to star.
Ayer said in a press release, “This is going to be an amazing role for Arnold. Reality is the watchword of this project and an exciting cast is in the works. I couldn’t be more excited as a filmmaker to work with one of my longtime heroes.”
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.
