Brody And Grace To Fight PREDATORS

PredatorAdrien Brody and Topher Grace will be joining Danny Trejo in fighting Predators, the Robert Rodriguez-producedreboot of Twentieth Century Fox’s science-fiction franchise.

According to the Hollywood Reporter

Brody is a man who ends up inheriting the mantle of leader and is known as a hunter of men. Grace would play an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer.

Joining the Brody , Grace and Trejo on their unasked for trip to the Predator homeworld are Alice Braga (I Am Legend), Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (The 4400), Walt Goggins (The Shield) and UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov. Production is set to start soon with a release date already set for July 9, 2010.

Admittedly, neither Brody or Grace are the first actors to spring to mind to headline a film in a franchise best known for having featured Arnold Schwarzenegger. But I think thatis what makes the choices work. No one will ever be able to match the impression Arnold makes in the film, so the best course of action is to not even try. From the simple, one line description of each character, the both sound dangerous in their own way. Grace has already shown us a bit of a dark side in his work in Spiderman 3.

Now all that remains to be seen who will, like Schwarzenegger and Predator co-star Jessie Ventura, will run for state governor later on.
