Predators Cast Locked In
Fear not Predators groupies.
Executive producer, Robert Rodriguez, has supplied us with an update on his rebooted creature feature’s star-studded cast. According to Variety, the extraterrestrial life form-fighting mercenary team will feature the likes of Adrien Brody and Topher Grace.
Rodriquez has announced that Adrien Brody will spearhead the sci-fi squad, to which Alice Braga (“I Am Legend”), Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (“The 4400″), and Walt Goggins (“The Shield”) have already been cast–Braga as the tough female killer; Ali as a man not afraid to die; and Goggins as a loose canon. Rodriguez mainstay Danny Trejo and UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov have also jumped on board–Trejo as Cuchillo will portray a hardened warrior and Taktarov plays a former Russian special ops agent. As for Topher Grace. The Spider-Man 3 star is in negotiations to join the action-adventure movie as an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer.
Shooting begins next month in Hawaii then moves to Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, according to Hollywood Reporter. The movie is slated for a July 9, 2010 release.
