In the last few months, we’ve seen some major developments occur with the upcoming new installment in the Predator franchise. Titled Predators, the Robert Rodriguez script (co-written by Alex Litvak and Michael Finch) is set to be directed by Nimród Antal with a reported projected start date of two weeks ago.

Now, it appears that the cast of the film is coming together. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adrien Brody is set to star in the reported re-boot of the Fox Studios franchise, Predators. Joining the Oscar winner are Danny Trejo (working with Rodriguez on Machete), Oleg Taktarov (UFC fighter), Walt Goggins (The Shield), Alice Braga (I am Legend, Redbelt) and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (The 4400).

Also in talks for a role in the film is Topher Grace. Yeap, the funny scrawny kid from That ’70s Show, who bulked up to play Eddie Brock in Spider-Man 3, may be duking it out with a Predator. His character is reportedly an accountant who’s secretly a serial killer. Brody on the other hand, plays the leader and a hunter of men.

Trejo’s character, to no surprise, is a bad-ass warrior who sports Uzis on his back. The others are also specialized military types with Taktarov playing a former Russian spec ops agent.

It’s a little strange to think of Topher Grace and Adrien Brody playing leads in a Predator film but the more I think about it, I can dig it. If both bulk up a bit, I’d like to see them in more serious bad-ass roles.

What do you think of the casting updates?

Predators is scheduled to hit theaters July 9, 2010.

  1. Stone Cold for Arnold.
    Terry Crews for Weathers.
    The Rock for the Indian.
    Don Cheadle for the old black dude.

    Thhhheeeeen Adrien Brody for the dork.

    Whats wrong with that?

  2. Btw for all y’all buying MJ’s movie-doc-movie “This Is It”? Dont complain if y’all dont like it cause just like what it says “This is it”, so that is it! I guess take it or leave, That is it! Lol!!!

  3. What Predator are we talkin’ here PREDATOR alien/Arnold or PREDATOR Pidophile movie?? I hope its not the PREDATOR/Arnold movie cause they’ll sure will ruin it!!

  4. Apparently its not going to be a re-boot but a different movie altogether. The movie is set on the predators homeworld…8 humans from around the world are set into a game reserve and must face battle against not only the predators but animals from other alien worlds…looks like they have a really good script. I’m up in the air about the actors…I would have liked to see the rock and jason statham in this..shoot or even Jet li. But I think the directors wanted to see how people from different walks of life would face off against the predators. In no way can the original be duplicated…so why try? it doesnt make sense, just go with a different story.

    Also the movie is supposed to introduce a new variety of Predators (most likely hot climate hunters) and a bunch of key people from the first movie are involved in the production process…come on this cant be any worse than everything that came after Predator 2. July of 2010 is the set release date at present.
