True Blood and Magic Mike star Joe Manganiello is in negotiations to join the cast of Breacher, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The story centers on a team of DEA agents, who pull off a lucrative heist disguised as a routine drug raid. Even though they think their secret is safe, each of the 10 team members start to get killed off, one by one. Joe Manganiello will play Grinder, one of the DEA agents who wants to come clean and tell the police about their illegal raid. Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, and Dawn Olivieri also star as members of the unit.

David Ayer is directing from a screenplay by Skip Woods. Open Road Flms is distributing, with QED International providing the financing. Bill Block, Paul Hanson, Joe Roth, Palak Patel, and Albert S. Ruddy are producing.

Production is scheduled to begin this October in Atlanta. Open Road Films is also distributing David Ayer's latest crime drama, End of Watch, slated for release on September 28.
