Yep you heard it...Adrien Brody is to lead the cast for the upcoming movie Predators.

In a surprise development, Adrien Brody has been set by 20th Century Fox to play the heroic mercenary who battles alien hunters in “Predators,” a reboot of the “Predator” franchise that is being creatively spearheaded by Robert Rodriguez.

Man I really didn't expect this to happen? But hey, atleast a quality actor has been attatched to a potentially very bad movie. Hopefully he won't do as bad of a job that Bale did with Terminator Salvation.

This film has a good director and Rodriguez producing, plus Adrien Brody starring?

Hardly a recipe for failure. It's looking better than Predator 2 already.

yes they did, and it's my favourite film, but the days of one liners are gone my friend

AvP2 would have been 'ok' without the one liners :/

What they need is a decent script and decent acting both of which were quite obviously missing from the AVP films.

AVP2 was terrible though. Just banal junk and the footage was graded to be so dark, it was unwatchable. It was just a no hope from the start. :(

Hmmm.

Not certain about this, I really loved 1 and 2. (the originals obviously).

I think Arnie was pretty damn perfect for the original, but hey if they can improve it I am happy. I did think 1 was better than 2, though 2 was still very very good indeed.

I would have thought that the Predator series would lend itself well to the same sort of modern "dark" makeover that the two new Batman films brought to that franchise. There seems to be very little gritty sci-fi being made these days.

So am I the only one thinking Adrien Brody shouldnt ever have anything to do with a Predator film? :confused:

As opposed to Danny Glover? Brody can actually act for a start.

Wasn't there hatred shown towards Heath Ledger's casting as the Joker? (for example). Shouldn't we judge after the film has come out?

Just don't let anyone involved in the Alien V Predator films a million miles near this and it shouldn't be too bad.

Adrien Brody is a very good actor.

Good actor, great director, it has potential :)
One liners died along with Arnies acting career, lets hope they dont resurrect them.

Better be a rated 18 otherwise its gona suck just like avp 1 and 2.

The ratings weren't the problem with the AVP films. And the original Alien and Predator movies weren't really that violent or at least the violence was mostly in context and not just mindless.

Maybe they should get Vin Diesel or Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to cheese it up?

No thanks.

Dunno, I didn't have any negative opinions about Heath playing the joker.

Yea hes a good actor, I just dont think hes suited to a predator film but whatever, suppose I should hold judgement.
