Just in case you are one of the weirdos who wasn’t already planning on watching Shane Black’s take on Predator, here’s some further incentive: The Hollywood Reporter has well, reported that Benecio Del Toro is in talks to appear in the film in the leading role. They described the film as an ensemble piece, with Del Toro leading the group.
Del Toro has been taking on some increasingly weirder roles as of late (see this articles header image), so starring in a Shane Black Predator movie sounds like a perfect fit, both for him and for us lucky audience members who will get the pleasure of watching the damn thing. I’m severely hoping that negotiations pan out, as a Del Toro/Black collaboration is something I’m just now realizing I need in my life.
Further details are sparse about Black’s Predator film, other than the fact that it will presumably feature the iconic alien from the previous movies, but hey, who knows. The film is set to start filming in February, so I’m sure we’ll starting getting a lot more info on who is actually going to be in this movie. As always, we’ll keep you updated.
What do you guys think of Del Toro playing the leading man in Shane Black’s Predator? Sound off in the comments below.
