David Ayer has a number of notable credits to his name, among them the screenplays for The Fast and the Furious, Training Day and coming soon, End of Watch, a crime drama headed into theaters this fall, which he’s also directing. Beyond that is Breacher (or otherwise titled Ten), a film Ayer is set to direct based on a screenplay by Skip Woods. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sam Worthington are on board to star.
The action thriller will follow 10 DEA agents who pull off a heist during an enforcement operation and afterward, begin dying one by one. According to THR, Terrence Howard and Dawn Olivieri are in talks to join the cast as two of the mentioned DEA agents. Not only are their characters engaged in an affair, but they’re also conspiring to steal the stolen goods. Something tells me things aren’t going to go as planned, unless there’s some kind of back-story that justifies their thievery and back-stabbery, and they’re able to escape who ever it is that’s picking off their fellow DEA agents (assuming it isn’t one or both of them).
It seems almost fitting that Dawn Olivieri and Terrance Howard should be linked in a project together when considering their previous roles. Maybe that’s because the last time I saw Olivieri, she was playing the recurring role of Monica opposite Don Cheadle in Showtime’s series House of Lies. Cheadle and Howard are linked in more ways than one, the most recent of which has Cheadle taking over the role of Rhodey for the Iron Man sequel after Howard played the part in the first film. And he and Howard were both in Crash. There’s also a sort of random link to David E. Kelley’s Picket Fences. Stretching it even further (and this one’s a stretch), Olivieri voiced the role of Pepper Potts in the TV series The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, which gives her an Iron Man connection.
Needless to say, there are already less than six degrees from Olivieri to Howard. And now, assuming negotiations work out for both of them, we should expect to see them on screen together in Breacher.
