Sam Worthington May Join Arnold Schwarzenegger In David Ayer's Ten

Sam Worthington and Arnold Schwarzenegger have never shared a scene together, but in a strange way they have. Worthington, of course, was the star of Terminator Salvation, which Schwarzenegger wasn't involved with, but the Australian actor did share a scene with a fully-CGI terminator that was made to look like the Austrian bodybuilder/former governor. But for those of you who thought that was just too much of a tease and want to see the real actors together on screen, I have some good news to deliver.

Variety reports that Worthington is now in talks to star in David Ayer's Ten, which already has Schwarzenegger attached. The thriller, which is loosely based on Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians, is about a DEA task force that plans to rob a drug cartel's safe house while pretending that it's a raid. While the job goes well and everything seems to have worked out, they begin to panic as the members of the squad are killed off one-by-one. The film will be Ayer's follow-up to End of Watch, his new cop drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, which is set to come out on September 21st (it was recently bumped up one week from its original September 28th release date). Skip Woods, who is best known for scripting movies like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The A-Team and the upcoming A Good Day To Die Hard, was given the pen for the project. The trade doesn't say when production is scheduled to begin.

Worthington has already appeared twice in 2012, having starred in both Man on A Ledge and Wrath of the Titans. He will next be seen in Ben Nott and Morgan O'Neill's Drift, which doesn't have an official US release date as of yet.
