Whilst currently promoting his new film, The Last Stand, Arnold Schwarzenegger is already planning his next move by gaining permission to shoot his next film at the home of Mike Briggs, President-Elect for Foundation for Ichthyosis & Related Skin Types, Inc.
Briggs gave Arnie and the rest of the film crew for the upcoming movie Ten permission to film scenes at his scenic home, but only on one condition: that the production team pledge all of the rental fees Briggs would be receiving for donating his land to his charity, FIRST. True to the agreement, earlier this week the offices of FIRST received a $35,000 cheque and a big thank you from Arnie and the rest of the film's team.
“I told them they were free to film at my home, as long as they agreed to donate all of the rental fees associated with the use of my property to FIRST,” said Briggs, was made president of FIRST this month, adding, “When the producers heard that, they decided to make the donation larger and have donated $35,000 to the Foundation. We couldn’t be more thrilled.”
Ten, which will begin filming later this year, stars Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello and Terrence Howard alongside Schwarzenegger and follows a group of special force DEA agents who find themselves being individually picked off after raiding a cartel safe house. The film is expected to be released in January next year.
