Adrien Brody Fights ‘Predators’ in New Featurette

predators adrien brody Adrien Brody Fights Predators in New Featurette

Last spring, when the first word of a Predators remake dropped, most people were excited because action/horror (kids film?) director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) was rumored to be behind the camera calling the shots. Unfortunately, that rumor turned out to be false, but at least Rodriguez was going to be producing.

Predator franchise fans were all wondering the some thing: Who was going to replace of the cast of muscle-bound guys from the original? There aren’t too many leading men out there right now that can even begin to match the bulk of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Jackson, and Jesse Ventura. So who would it be? Dwayne Johnson, Karl Urban, John Cena?

Predators is a reboot in which some of planet Earth’s most deadly killers are transported to a “game preserve” planet where they are hunted by tribes of Predators. Imagine everyone’s surprise when it was announced that Adrien Brody would be heading up the team of killers who will be taking on the Predators . First impressions were that Brody was a miscasting worst than Tara Reid playing a scientist in Alone in the Dark.

If you haven’t watched the Predators trailer that dropped last week, check it out. It completely changed my mind about Brody’s ability to play a convincing action character. Today, we have a behind-the-scenes featurette on Brody from the new Predators movie and you know what – the dude looks bad ass! Seriously, check out the video below:

Brody is a sharp actor and that was never in question. His performances in The Jacket, The Pianist and The Brothers Bloom were great and I’m sure he will be just as good in the upcoming sci-fi horror film, Splice. His role in King Kong could be considered action but that movie was more about the ape than it was about his character.

Joining Brody on his Predator adventure are fellow bad-asses Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Danny Trejo (Machete), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), Topher Grace (Spider-man 3) and Alice Braga (Repo Men). The movie is directed by Nimrod Antal (Armored), written by Alex Litvak and produced by Robert Rodriguez, Elizabeth Avellan and Alex Young.

What are your thoughts on Adrien Brody as an action star in Predators? Think he fits the mold?

  1. That is so good to see Adrien doing that!

  2. I think you meant Carl Weathers.

  3. I dont Care what anybody says I love that cast! Topher Grace Never would have thought of that, thats good stuff even if he is not baddass in the movie which would be hilarious he has Danny Trejo and Laurence Fishburne to protect him all the time both of those ideas would be awesome for this movie! Love The Casting Ideas

  4. “There aren’t too many leading men out there right now that can even begin to match the bulk of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Jackson, and Jesse Ventura. So who would it be? Dwayne Johnson, Karl Urban, John Cena?” The correct name isn't Carl Jackson but Carl Weathers!
    Nice post.

    • Vin Diesel! As “Riddick” He’s the guy we’re looking for that is the best human challenger against the Predator!

  5. Brody looks like a real soldier to me, I await this movie with much anticipation.

  6. No Arnold, but able to act really well. Knowing there will be an expanded race of predators really has me intrigued.

  7. he's a merc yet he has a skinny nimble body.. yeah that seems to add up.

    i hope its not to cliche' of arnolds predator, and that Fishburne does a good job, rather then just talk with a few steps to back himself up 😉

  8. He looks like a thin Bear Grylls here….. but i agree he can act the character!

  9. Adrien Brody looks like hes gonna pull this off. thank god they didnt cast someone like jon cena. last i checked the military didnt require soldiers to be on steroids. so its good to see that theyr taking a more realistic approach with the casting.

  10. HA! Yeah I did. Nice catch! I'll get it fixed. I was thinking Action Jackson while writing his name. lol

  11. Adrien Brody actually looks like a real soldier here…not some steroid-fiend. Granted, Arnold and his teams over-the-top physique was part of the unrealistic comic attraction of the first film…but we don't want a repeat of the first film! I think Brody is perfect because he can pull off the physical stuff realistically and he can ACTUALLY ACT! Some moron straight to video dude like John Cena would have ruined this project from day one. I just hope the movie is over 90 minutes long…I'm getting really tired of short films that sacrifice suspense build-up, we need around 2 hours to have a real ride on our hands (hell, the extended version of Aliens is nearly 3 hours and is the most entertaining film I've ever seen!)

  12. Notice that there are only 2 guys (3 if you count Brody) left in the background of the picture. And if anyone payed close attention to the trailer, it gave away about half of the deaths in the movie. Just makin' an observation so don't nag on me.

  13. Well it's not really rocket science figuring out whose gonna stay the distance just based on star power alone, still cant wait for it alone.

  14. I sure did enjoy this movie. :) I think Brody did a fine job. I think the whole cast did a fine job. :) And I want sequels.

  15. I’d choose Vin Diesel as “Riddick” over Adrien Brody and the rest of those guys with him any day!!! Oh what I’d give to see “Riddick Vs. Predator!” The greatest hunter in the galaxy takes on a Furyan warrior!!!
