The Guvnor Arnold Schwarzenegger may never have won any acting awards in his halcyon action days of the 1980s but one thing you could believe is that he could actually kill a Predator in single combat.
So we can only say WTF to discover the star of Nimrod Antel’s Predators will be …Adrian Brody, a man Arnie could probably kill with his thumbs. He hardly swashed our buckle in King Kong and is known for more thoughtful fare like The Darjeeling Ltd and Hollywoodland.
Perhaps he is ticking off a list of all the cool things he can tell his grandkids? Won an Oscar, snogged Halle Berry, killed a Predator.
Brody will play a mercenary who has to try and keep his team alive when they are hunted by the multi-tooled aliens in producer Robert Rodriguez’s reboot of the franchise
With Topher Grace also in talks to join the cast as a serial killer, you have to wonder whether Rodriguez has brought together the softest action leads in history. Maybe it will be Predator Club Juniors taking them on. Or perhaps all the usual action stars were booked filming Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables.
