Akerman in talks to join ‘Breacher’

Thesp to co-star with Schwarzenegger, Worthington

Malin Akerman is in negotiations to co-star with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sam Worthington in David Ayer’s “Breacher.”

QED International is financing “Breacher,” which will be distributed stateside by Open Road Films.

A testosterone-heavy riff on Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians,” the Skip Woods-scripted film follows an elite DEA task force that robs a dangerous drug cartel under the guise of a tactical raid on one of its safe houses. They think they’ve gotten away with millions in merch, until team members begin getting bumped off one by one.

Akerman plays a member of the team.

QED’s Bill Block and Paul Hanson are producing with Joe Roth and Palak Patel of Roth Films, as well as Albert Ruddy. Alex Ott of Ayer’s Crave Films will serve as exec producer.

Akerman remains one of the busier actresses in town in the last year having already shot a handful of roles in movies such as “CBGB” where she portrays Debbie Harry and “The Numbers Station” with John Cusack. The WME and Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management repped Akerman, who was most recently seen in New Line and Warner Bros. “Rock of Ages.”
