A new Predator 4 rumor has surfaced suggesting that Ben Affleck turned down a role for Shane Black's The Predator and that now agents for James Franco are pushing for him to star as Quinn McKenna, the film's lead protagonist.
This rumor comes to us from The Wrap, who report that Shane Black was initially interested in either Ben Affleck or Christian Bale for the lead role in his Predator sequel, but that because neither of those came through, James Franco's agents are now pushing to secure the lead role for Franko himself.
Besides the mention of Franco, the only other casting rumors to have hit the web concerning The Predator were Curtis Jackson's (50 Cent) involvement and the ongoing negotiations with franchise icon Arnold Schwarzenegger. With cameras set to roll near the end of September, we expect we'll begin to receive official casting updates very soon. As more news of this rumor surface we'll be sure to keep you updated!

About The Predator
Shane Black returns to the Predator franchise to direct a new sequel to 1987's Predator! Officially titled The Predator! From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black's explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
