Benicio Del Toro in Talks To Star In The Predator!

Benicio Del Toro in talks to star in The Predator! According to Deadline and The Hollywood ReporterBenicio Del Toro is currently in negotiations with 20th Century Fox to appear as a pivotal character in Shane Black’s The Predator. The Hollywood Reporter further elaborated on that:

“Plot details are being kept hidden in mud but the new movie is said to be an ensemble piece anchored by the character to be played by Del Toro.

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

Neither article specifies which character Del Toro is playing so we don’t know if he will be playing the previously named main character Quinn McKenna. Fred Dekker has previously insinuated that the Predator would be a larger picture with many different characters from all over the world.

Is it possible that Del Toro could be playing a central character that is involved in all these different locales, playing a character similar to Peter Keyes in Predator 2 but on a larger scale?

The Hollywood Reporter also mentions that a February 2017 start date has been settled on.  However, it’s not clear if that means the entire production (which has already been pushed back one month and is due to start in October in Vancouver) or if that is just Del Toro’s filming.

Thanks to Gazz and ‎Crux Mottol for the news.

    Somehow I feel Del Toro will be what Danny Trejo was to Predators: Unnecessary character filling to be killed offscreen in the first 20 minutes. Hell, i'll be even more surprised if we get Franco and 50 onboard!

    "Fred Dekker has previously insinuated that the Predator would be a larger picture with many different characters from all over the world."

    Soooo....Predators 2 then?

    Um, no.

    He's either Quinn or his mismatched buddy, given it's a Shane Black film.

    If his counterpart is Tom Hardy that would be heavenly.

    Hardy might be shooting Mad Max if the rumours are true.
    Not in the next 2 - 3 years, they don't have a script yet, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Hardy is looking for genre roles, but rumor is he passed on Predator too, but really, you can't believe anything at the moment, we heard names like Hardy, Bale, Affleck, Franco, Cavill... and boom comes Del Toro, so really, they could end up with anyone at the moment.
    Really? Where did you read about Hardy passing The Predator up?

    Was Tom Hardy even in serious consideration?

    The AvP-R script should have simply begun.

    Fade in:

    Fade out.

    :laugh:

    That single shot of Jack in the snow is much better than the two AVP movies combined. :laugh:

    Any 5 seconds selected at random from The Shining are better than the two AVP movies combined. (That includes the end credits, because you can at least see what they say.)

    Who shows up at the end of AvP or Predators?

    He was talking about the script endings which wrote Arnold into the intended films-- neither of which obviously happened.

    I knew about the one they had in mind for [i[Predators[/i] but I don't think I knew about the concept of an AVP cameo.

    I didnt know about an Arnie, AVP ending either. Wonder if it was a case of he just turned up and picked her up lmao

    And now she just freezes to death. Lol

    The AvP-R script should have simply begun.

    Just cameo or a minor role, but just something to acknowledge some form of continuity.

    If they go with the minor role route, I was thinking something like SCS. The character "Onyx" is totally Dutch and I'd think it'd be cool if they went a similar route, have a mysterious figure who has some in depth knowledge of Predators without saying who he is directly, but we as fans know exactly who it is.
