The infamous space Rastafarian will soon be setting his three red dot sights not only upon Danny Trejo, but also upon Adrien Brody (King Kong) and Topher Grace (Spiderman 3).
That’s right, director Nimrod Antal’s Predators, scripted and produced by Robert Rodriguez for Troublemaker Studios, seems to have gone off the deep end as far as casting decisions go – alongside Trejo, Brody, and Grace, we’ll also have Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, I Am Legend‘s Alice Braga and the UFC’s Oleg Taktarov.
The film will deal with a group of manly warriors (of which Brody is inexplicably a part) as they fight off a group of Predators, while the plot is thickened by Grace’s role as “an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer.”
This is definitely shaping up to be a project more akin to Rodriguez’s catalog than anything we’re familiar with in the past Predator series. It sounds like just the shot in the arm the series needs, too, after Alien vs. Predator: Requiem.
Predators starts shooting next month in Hawaii, then will move back to film in Austin, TX at Troublemaker, and will be released on July 9, 2010. More info on the film here at AtomicPopcorn.net as the project further de-cloaks.
