Holloway hangs ‘Ten’ with Schwarzenegger

Sam Worthington also stars in David Ayer's action-thriller

“Lost” veteran Josh Holloway is in negotiations to join Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sam Worthington in David Ayer’s action-thriller “Ten.”

QED International is producing, financing and handling international sales for the pic, 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 10 members of 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.

Holloway is in talks to play Neck, a tough member of Schwarzenegger’s DEA team who also acts as the medic.

Pic will co-star Malin Akerman, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, Joe Mangianello, Olivia Williams, Max Martini and Dawn Olivieri.

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. Production is currently skedded for October in Atlanta.

Holloway, who was last seen playing a spy in “”Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” recently wrapped a supporting role as an FBI agent in Robert Luketic’s thriller “Paranoia,” which Relativity Media will distribute stateside on behalf of IM Global. Thesp next stars alongside Chris Brown in Screen Gems’ dance pic “Battle of the Year,” which opens Jan. 25.

Holloway is repped by WME and attorney Brad S. Small.
