You could tape Adrien Brody and Topher Grace together and you still wouldn't get one Arnold Schwarzenegger. That hasn't stopped 20th Century Fox's reboot of the Predator franchise to cast both men in the lead roles.
Producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimrod Antal are already on board and Hollywood Reporter says Brody's character "is a man who ends up inheriting the mantle of leader" amongst the film's cast, as each player finds themselves the unwitting prey of a horde or Predators. Brody is also known as "a hunter of men." Grace, meanwhile, plays "an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer."
Yeah, that's right ... serial killer. So things are changing. But doesn't this sound a little more exciting than Vin Diesel being cast in a remake?
Just to get the blood pumping, here's the trailer to the original 1987 Predator film. And if you said to yourself ... where's the Predator 2 trailer starring Danny Glover, shame on you. Shame.
If you could have one guy back from the original to get killed by the Predator, who would it be? Carl Weathers? Jesse Ventura? My vote, Poncho. Definitely Poncho.
