Updated: MMA Fighter Conor McGregor Was Offered Role in The Predator

MMA fighter Conor McGregor was offered a role in The Predator he revealed in an interview with An Experience With in Manchester yesterday. During the interview, McGregor was asked about turning down an offer to appear at WWE Wrestlemania and he revealed he’d turned down a lot of roles, including an offer to appear in Shane Black’s The Predator!

“I’ll tell you there’s a lot of offers that I’ve turned down. I got offered The Predator movie. There’s a new Predator movie coming out and the guys came to me – did you see that horse thing I’ve done, the horse racing? That was like three days solid work for a hell of a lot of money, for three days. During that three day course, the people from Predator who are having this new Predator movie, a blockbuster…They came in and tried to the sell the whole shit. “We want you to be the main guy and you’re gonna fight [the] Predator” and I’m like “this sounds brilliant! How much?”

Not enough. We went back and forth negotiating and the number climbed up but if I was to do it would mean eight weeks in Canada, in Toronto or somewhere. It’s too long a time. You can’t do a million things at once. The Pegasus thing was one thing because it was like three days, in and out. But seven, eight weeks on a film set is heavy as fuck. Plus it would have crept in around when he’s due. I didn’t want to get tricky with that so I turned down that offer.”

Conor McGregor was offered a role in The Predator he revealed in an interview with An Experience With. MMA Fighter Conor McGregor Was Offered Role in The Predator

Conor McGregor was offered a role in The Predator he revealed in an interview with An Experience With.

When McGregor says “he’s due” he’s referring to him and his wife expecting a baby boy soon. You can view the whole interview on YouTube. The Predator question comes up around the 48 minute mark. McGregor joins Ben Affleck, Tom Hardy and Christian Bale in turning down offers for The Predator.

McGregor is better known as a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter than an actor, though he did provide voice work for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

This also isn’t the first time someone involved in physical sports has been named in connection with the Predator series over the years – both Dwayne Johnson and John Cena had been repeatedly mentioned in the past when it came to Predator 3. And, of course, we already have Predator’s Carl Weathers (a professional footballer), Jesse Ventura (a professional wrestler) and Predators’ Oleg Taktarov, a fellow UFC champion.

Thanks to Tom Wilson and FreeFaceHugz for the news. Keep checking in with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on The Predator! You can follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram to get the latest on your social media walls. You can also join in with fellow Predator fans on our forums!

Update #1 (30/01/2017) – The full length interview has since been removed but there’s still a short clip of the specific question and McGregor’s response about The Predator.

Update #2 (31/01/2017) – Shane Black tweeted last night that McGregor was not offered the lead role but he didn’t provide any extra commentary, just saying that: “CONOR McGREGOR: great guy, nice as can be — NOT, however, offered the male lead. Boyd Holbrook holds that distinction. Just sayin’.”

    The reason the predators and aliens were done on the cheap by ADI was because of the budgets of those movies.  They basically re-used the moulds from A:R for the aliens and the moulds they created for AVP for the predators in AVPR.  Most of the budget for the creature effects on AVP went to the Queen (which was well done IMO).  And in AVPR it was spent on the Wolf Predator and the Predalien.  The predators in AVP/AVPR (except for Wolf) all looked much the same except for the masks.

    If they aren't given much budget in The Predator then expect much the same from ADI.  They'll probaly re-use the moulds from AVP for background predators.  Though there will probably be a hero predator that most of the budget will go on.

    You don't know that the budget isn't big. ADI are industry specialists who are likely not cheap. Just because you're not a fan of their past Predators doesn't equate to them being cheap. And as pointed out numerous times, many big films film in Vancouver. Doesn't equate to it being small budget.

    I think we need to take a step back and stop assuming things we don't know the actual facts of. Especially when they're being said with certainty.

    ADI is a hit and miss, the Wolf predator was allright but inferior to the ones designed by Winston studio.Their new weapons kinda suck, they looked like toys rather than alien tech.Anyway the actors are not fancy, and ADI was already used in movies with 40 to 60 million budget like the AVPs.Same pattern, cheap actors, cheap settings and ADI.But the movie can still be decent, Dekker is not as lame as Shane Salerno and Shane Black burries Paul Anderson/Strause alive as a director.I'm just saying there is nothing so far to be happy about.

    Cast is cheap, setting is cheap this is a fact.ADI is not Legacy also , make you wonder , they spent the money on what ?
    Just to reinforce my arguments regarding ADI, Legacy is working on the new F13 flick, which probably doesn't even has half the budget of a Predator movie.

    http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/news/legacy-effects-is-working-on-friday-the-13th-part-13-118

    At this point, i would even go as far to say that Legacy is no ADI. If you look at their credits, after Winston passed, they rarely did movie effects work or creature work, most of the people who worked at Winston work for ADI now.

    It was just an example, i don't hate ADI.We've been promised a big event movie and so far it looks cheap on every level, the budget should be big for everything, filming locations, cast, creature fx and whatnot.
    You gotta be realistic though. Predator is no Kong and if you expect something huge for a franchise that doesn't justify that then the problem is basically... you and your expectations.

    Just because it doesn't have the budget of a huge marvel movie does not mean they aren't putting effort in it, which they clearly already do.

    And we really weren't promised anything, Shane said he wants to do a movie that feels like an event... which is not exclusively about money.

    Uhhm, no I didn't. I was talking about being able to differentiate a good script from a bad one, which is a bit different then forming an opinion on one.

    A script is a story and just like movies, no single one is factually "good" or "bad." It's based on opinion.

    Quote
    He is also quoted as saying “We want you to be the main guy and you’re gonna fight [the] Predator” which Shane himself said on twwiter that McGregor was not offered the lead role, meaning that McGregor probably wasn't really sure what the filmmakers wanted from him, and what he liked or disliked exactly about the film

    It is more likely he misspoke by saying "lead role" instead of a primary role. It doesn't mean he couldn't follow the pitch on a whole or understand if he liked it or not.

    Quote
    Even if they don't, it still was a bit arrogant of him to ask a question like that, especially taking into account that he has never made a movie before and that he is not really an actor, not a professional one anyway.

    I'd describe him as arrogant too but his priority isn't acting, so it comes as no surprise that he isn't jumping at this chance if it's not convenient for his personal life and other professional life.

    Quote
    Its not really about being able to form an opinion, it's about having a professional ability to differentiate a good script from a bad one, like I was implying in my very first post

    But you responded to my post about his opinion being that he didn't "hate the script." Despite what you think of his ability in critiquing a script, his opinion of the story is telling and worth consideration. How much his opinion is worth is up for debate, just like any source who says they read a leaked script and posts their opinion here or on reddit or something.

    Quote
    Thats not entirely true. The thing about scripts is that something might look good and seem like a good concept on paper, but on screen it will look like crap, and vise verca

    I don't think it'd hold much weight if Mcgregor liked the script, but it would of he said he didn't like it. That's my original statement: if he read it and dropped out because he didn't like it, that'd be a very bad sign. But he dropped out due to money.

    Quote
    So if you are not porofessional enough, and you say that a script was good, but then in the end the movie turns out to be crap, you will end up looking like an idiot. So this is why its important to have a professional ability to differentiate a good script from a bad one.

    Experienced professionals green light terrible scripts all the time, though. It may inspire more confidence if an experienced person says a script is solid, but it takes anyone to decide if they don't like the story on in the script. Just like I said: Us fans on this site don't even have a script but we sure are opinionated on what ideas, if in the script, are good or absolute garbage (look at the varied reactions to Tremblay's character description). If you said "I don't like the idea of having a Predator be the protagonist in a film," I would agree. I wouldn't say "well you're not in the movie business so you don't know what a good script or story is."

    Quote
    And all I was saying, is that a person as inexperienced as, in this case McGregor, with no prior experience working with big movie people is not really qualified to be judging whether a movie script from a major film corporation is good or bad.

    He knows what he personally likes and he's quoted as saying what was pitched to him was "brilliant." If the headline read "McGregor trashes Shane Black's Predator script," the narrative wouldn't be "He doesn't know anything about screenwriting." People would be worried and for good reason if that were the case.

    Quote
    Especially when he just asks how much he will be paid, without reading the script

    Do actors typically read scripts before they know how much they're being offered?

    You're missing the whole point there friend, again.

    When someone, who has never ever worked with big movie people, is offered a role, a big chance, in a major motion picture from a major film coporation, offered to stay and film not in some desert or rainforest but in Canada (a developed first world country with clean tap water, electricity and plenty of affordable hotels and hospitals with trained medical staff for his pregnant wife), turns down this big chance to become experienced in this movie business. Now ask yourself, can this person tell whether a movie script from a major film corporation is good or bad, or say that he really hates it?

    Thats a weak point as his personal decisions regarding his life priorities habe nothing to do with his capability to like or dislike something he reads.

    If he had read it, though, yes, he'd be able to decide whether he liked it or not. You don't have to be in the film industry to have an opinion of whether a script is good or bad. A script is a story and like any story, whether it's good or bad is simply based on opinion.

    Thats not entirely true. The thing about scripts is that something might look good and seem like a good concept on paper, but on screen it will look like crap, and vise verca. This is why most, almost all, movies based on videogames are such a failure, even though movies and videogames all tell some sort of story. So if you are not porofessional enough, and you say that a script was good, but then in the end the movie turns out to be crap, you will end up looking like an idiot. So this is why its important to have a professional ability to differentiate a good script from a bad one.

    So it seems the issue was not enough money. That's actually a better sign than "I hated the script."

    I don't think a guy, who spends most of his time getting kicked in head, and who has zero experience in movies, will be able to differentiate a good script from a bad one

    Would you be able to?

    You mean if I was an MMA fighter with zero experience in the movie business, or me personally?

    You personally.

    Of course not,  :D I'm no where near to anything 'movie related', but thats not the point. My point was that a guy, an MMA fighter, with no experience in starring in big budget blockbuster films or any kind of film whatsoever, who says that hes turned down a lot of roles, asked the film makers how much money he was going to be paid firsthand, without even reading the script and complaining about an 8 weeks shoot in Canada, can't really judge whether a script of a movie is good or bad.

    But thats just my opinion.

    Any more weird questions for me?  :)

    It's not a weird question, friend. It's a little odd you wouldn't have an opinion after reading something. Mcgregor might not know much about film but he'd know whether he liked something he read, and there's no doubt if he was offered a role, the role itself was described to him. All I'm saying is at least his reason for not accepting was nothing to do with the story or character being pitched.

    Do actors typically read scripts before knowing how much they'd be paid to do the film? I legitimately do not know.

    Its all garbage with this guy. Light weight wanna fight a heavy weight and the trolling on media for a fight with Mayweather. Lead role where???????????, 0 acting experience over proper actors with rep I don't think so.

    If this is true my expectations for the film just tanked 😔

    make you wonder , they spent the money on what ?
    Great script, great director, great sets (they booked one of the biggest stages in vancouver), convincing visual- and practical effects, great cinematography? Great action scenes? Arnold?

    You seem to know a lot of stuff, got a price list? How do you know ADI is cheaper? They book free lancers all the time, people who worked partly at WETA and Stan Winston in the past, they are the top notch people in the industry.

    Fact is, we don't know, but like i said, the canada filming does say nothing about the budget or production value of a movie, they shot big, big movies there and they can make the place look like pretty much anything.

    The Nice Guys was shot in Atlanta and looked like L.A., just an example. Fact is, they hire talent for this movie so the script seems to be great. I would have loved some famous folks for this movie, but i rather have talented unknowns than expensive "stars" that have zero screen presence, like a lot of blockbuster movies, where characters are nothing more than fill-ins for shaky and boring action scenes.

    Predator is great because of the charisma between the actors and that is what Shane is going for, and he knows best, because he was on set, so i have faith that this will work out great.
    I agree

    while i am not calling mr. mcgregor a liar...he is a very boastful person...i doubt if he was the main guy..since this is a epic yarn...perhaps he was one of the main people fighting The Predator somewhere across the globe.

    I think the whole "event movie" thing went totally out of control, they never meant the budget, they meant the "new and inventive, must see" kinda vibes the movie will hopefully radiate to the people, he basically said a hundred times now that the budget doesn't have to be huge and he's absolutely right.


    Yes, the budget will be bigger, but not marvel size and to be true, Predator doesn't justify that big of a budget and it never will. Here is hoping that we will get the biggest movie in the franchise yet with the best production values yet. Predator wasn't that huge a movie and people love it, yet, they are concerened about this being done on the cheap with a billion dollar director behind it who happens to be a brilliant writer and director?

    Indeed. All Black truely means by that is that he wants this to be a film that people are genuinely excited to go and see, something that people pre-buy their tickets for so that they know they're got a good seat. As Johnny says, it's not just about budget and even if they have budget, they aren't going to just piss it up the wall. Money saved by filming in Vancouver (which lots of productions do), is money that can be spent on something else.

    There is no such thing as a big budget blockbuster event movie released in february...
    If there are R-Rated, there actually is.

    Logan gets released in March for example, that movie costs over a 100 million. R rated movies play better outside the summer, blockbuster or not, so The Predator being released in february doesn't tell us jack shit about it's quality or "event" status, neither does the vancouver filming by the way, they filmed movies with a 200 million+ budget there and you can't even tell. People need to understand that movies that take place in big citys rarely get shot on location because of money, no studio throws money out the window no matter the budget. Movies are all about illusion, and it's the filmmakers job to make something believable.

    To to sum it up: There is no pleasing everyone.

    Could this be a sign that there really are problems with the production? Getting Alien 5 vibes here.
    A5 is cancelled, The Predator shoots in three weeks and we're getting casting updates like every 5 days... i wouldn't worry.

    Would you be able to?

    You mean if I was an MMA fighter with zero experience in the movie business, or me personally?

    You personally.

    You have to be careful with what Conor's claims, he is a great talker but I highly doubt he was offered the lead role with limited acting experience in a movie they are trying to revitalize.

    Oh and by the way if the fight between him and Mayweather ever happens...he's getting his ass whooped!

    At what sport?  Boxing? Maybe by decision, Conor won't get KO.  MMA - that first leg kick Conor throws at Mayweather... game over man game over!!!.
    The talk of the fight between them is only about boxing. have you ever watched a Mayweather fight in real time and then watch it in slow motion? I've never seen a faster boxer
