'Terminator' Stars May Team Up; Edgar Wright Will Direct a Sci-Fi Pic for J.J. Abrams

Terminator Salvation

Terminator Team-Up?: Two Terminator stars may join forces in an upcoming action thriller. Sam Worthington (Terminator: Salvation, above) is in early talks to star alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in Ten, to be directed by David Ayer (Harsh Times). Ten is inspired by Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians, as a corrupt DEA task force starts getting killed off after robbing a drug cartel; the script is by Skip Woods (Swordfish). [Showblitz]

Mystery Sci-Fi: Already set to start shooting the comedy The World’s End this fall and Marvel’s Ant-Man perhaps as early as next year, Edgar Wright has lined up yet another project. He’ll direct and cowrite Collider, a science-fiction film whose premise is yet to be revealed. Wright is writing the script with Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend), so presumably they’ll need to finish that up pretty quick or else it will have to wait until Wright finishes working on The World’s End. J.J. Abrams will serve as one of the producers. [Deadline]

The Minions Are Coming!: The Minions, the loyal, lovable little yellow creatures from Despicable Me, will star in their own feature-length animated adventure. First they’ll appear in the sequel Despicable Me 2, due out in 2013, and then they’ll move from supporting roles to stardom the following year. Pierre Coffin, who codirected the original, will share directing duties on both the sequel and the spin-off. [The Film Stage]

Shadow Work: While we’re on the subject of animation, the wonderfully simple first poster for Dreamworks’ Me and My Shadow has been released. The film, due out in March 2014, will combine CGI and hand-drawn animation. Bill Hader will voice Stanley, a “timid guy” whose shadow (Josh Gad) takes over when a crime in the shadow world puts their lives in danger. [Bleeding Cool]
