Just a heads up for those of you following one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s many in-development offerings Ten. The thriller that will serve as a nod to Ten Little Indians from director David Ayer has be re-titled Breacher. For those of you unfamiliar with the project, Swordfish scrip Skip Woods adapted the classic narrative that sees ten DEA agents start getting picked off one by one after a heist they pulled.
Additional cast members include Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Dawn Olivieri (House of Lies,) and Joe Manganiello (True Blood.) Today’s news from THR adds Dollhouse actress Olivia Williams to the cast. While pretty unknown among the masses, she does have credits that include Hanna and The Ghost Writer (two really high quality, low-key efforts.) Williams also has some biggies in development via Anna Karenina from director Joe Wright and a role as Eleanor Roosevelt in Hyde Park on Hudson opposite Bill Murray.
Update 8/23: Mireille Enos of The Killing fame has joined the cast of this one as well. Deadline reports that the actress will be playing a member of the elite DEA team who is married to Sam Worthington’s character. You may also know the actress from Big Love, but more so if you follow the trades as she has a booming film career with future endeavors that include Gangster Squad and World War Z.
The cast for this one is shaping up rather beautifully probably because of the buzz around his next film, End of Watch. Breacher could easily be the film that puts Schwarzenegger back on top as it could prove to be far better than The Last Stand which is his first true starring vehicle back in showbiz.
