Sam Worthington is in talks to join the cast of David Ayer's upcoming Ten, Variety reports. He'd star opposite the previously-announced Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The film follows an elite DEA task force that 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.
Worthington is best known for starring roles in films like Avatar and, most recently, Man on a Ledge and Wrath of the Titans. He and Schwarzenegger also share a franchise with roles in different Terminator films.
The original screenplay for Ten arrives from Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, A Good Day to Die Hard). Bill Block, Paul Hanson, Joe Roth, Palak Patel and Al Ruddy will serve as producers. Alex Ott of Ayer’s Crave Films is executive producer.
