The upcoming Robert Rodriguez produced Predator prequel – simply titled Predators – has a new (Oscar bona fide) cast member: the talented Adrien Brody, who took home a little gold man in 2003 for his powerful performance in Polanksi’s The Pianist. Brody will star as a mercenary alien hunter in a role said to be similar to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s chunky-armed no-guff one-liner machine Dutch in John McTiernan’s 1987 classic. Other confirmed cast members include Alice Braga, Walt Goggins, Oleg Taktarov, Louiz Ozawa and Rodrigeuz favourite Danny Trejo who, according to IMDB, has been a very busy bee, with 23 films to his name released this year or next. Predators has been ambitiously slated to open in America next July. That’s only 10 months away, so they better get crackin’.
