According to news surfacing today, Arnold Schwarzenegger is not quite the film pariah that many thought the former action star would turn into following the news that he fathered a child during his marriage to Maria Shriver. Word has it that Avatar star Sam Worthington may be about to climb aboard an upcoming project with the Governator.
More specifically, the Man on a Ledge actor has been offered a part in David Ayer’s action thriller Ten. The film is somewhat based on Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians, but ultimately centers on a DEA task force that gets picked off by an assassin one by one.
Variety says that negotiations are yet to enter formal status, so this could always end up not happening as we are yet to hear about Jim Cameron’s plans for the upcoming Avatar films which are presumed to start shooting sometime within the next year. To be honest, we rather see Sam Worthington slide this film out before going into back-to-back-to-back sci-fi flicks. At least this would go a long way in making the star a little more than another Mark Hamill (Star Wars.)
In case you were wondering about Schwarzenegger movies, he is next set to hit the big screen in August via The Expendables 2 and has already wrapped production on The Last Stand and The Tomb. The latter of which pairs the actor with Sylvester Stallone and Jim Caviezel. Both are scheduled for 2013 releases.
