Benicio Del Toro in talks to star in Shane Black's Predator!

Benicio Del Toro in talks to star in Shane Black's Predator!

Shane Black's Predator remains one of the most intriguing science fiction sequels, although plot details remain thin. However according to The HollyWood Reporter, Benicio Del Toro is in talks to join the movie in an unspecified role. According to The Hollywood Reporter: 

"The actor and the studio have been dancing for months around this project but one challenge has been been De Toro's schedule. But that stumbling block looks to have been cleared and a February 2017 start date is being planned."

No indication of what this role may be was given, however this casting is very encouraging news. Del Toro has had experience in both science fiction and horror, having starred in both The Wolfman, as well as Guardians of the Galaxy. 

20th Century Fox, Executive Producer Bill Bannerman and Producer John Davis will release Shane Black's The Predator February 9th, 2018.

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.

I haven't seen him in a role I didn't like. He seems to bring his A-game with each casting, so I'm thrilled he's on board for The Predator.
