If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Last month, it was reported that Sam Worthington ('Avatar') would be appearing alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the upcoming movie 'Ten.' The film, which has been written by Skip Woods ('X-Men Origins: Wolverine') and will be directed by David Ayer ('Harsh Times'), is essentially an action take on Agatha Christie's mystery story 'Ten Little Indians.' This version would see a DEA task force being knocked off one by one after raiding a cartel safe house. Now it appears another member of that task force has been cast. Mireille Enos ('The Killing') has just signed on to play a DEA agent who is also the wife to Sam Worthington's character. Enos will next be appearing on the big screen in two recently pushed back productions: Ruben Fleischer's 'Gangster Squad' and Marc Forster's 'World War Z.' No word yet on when filming for 'Ten' is set to begin.
The concept for 'Ten' still firmly holds my attention, if only because it's so outlandish. Turning 'Ten Little Indians' into an action movie is something I previously would have assumed even Hollywood wasn't desperate enough to do. And yet, here we are. However, 'The Raid: Redemption' has renewed my love for police-raiding-dangerous-criminal-installation movies. If this is handled the right way, it could be an insanely fun romp. As to Mireille Enos, I thought she was great on 'The Killing' and she's definitely a good pickup for this project. I'm curious about her character. It's not often that a strike team for any law enforcement agency would include a married couple. Plus, if we're really following 'Ten Little Indian' rules, it's a sure bet that one or both of them will be dead by the end of the movie. Or perhaps they'll diverge a bit and the two of them will be the ones to make it out alive. 2013 is shaping up to be a big year for Enos. As of now, I've yet to see her in anything apart from 'The Killing' so it'll be interesting to see how she handles the transition to the big screen.
What do you guys think? Are you excited for 'Ten?' Any 'Killing' fans happy that Enos is coming aboard?
