One of the more admirable aspects of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return to film are the projects he’s choosing. There is his team ups with Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables films and Escape Plan and there was also the underrated The Last Stand directed by the critically acclaimed Kim Jee-Woon.
His latest film Sabotage, previously titled Ten is directed by David Ayer who is coming off his universally acclaimed action drama End of Watch. Sabotage is loosely based on the Agatha Christie novel Ten Little Indians.
Another exciting aspect of Sabotage is the all-star ensemble cast including Terrence Howard, Sam Worthington and Mirelle Enos.
Personally, I’m looking forward to director David Ayer’s work in the film. End of Watch was one of my favorite films of last year. I think it’s an interesting follow up for David Ayer. A seemingly big budget action film instead of another character piece like End of Watch. But the presence of an impressive cast of character actors gives this project some interesting flavoring. Let’s hope the script can achieve some of the potential that this ensemble of performers can produce.
Sabotage stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Manganiello, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Max Martini, Josh Holloway, Olivia Williams, and Mireille Enos. The film is directed by David Ayer and written by Skip Woods and David Ayer. Sabotage is scheduled for release on April 11, 2014.
In SABOTAGE Arnold Schwarzengger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done – until, one-by-one, the ten members mysteriously start to be eliminated.
