I’ve never seen Oscar winner Adrian Brody as the action type, but that all about to change as he’s signed up to play the lead in Robert Rodriguez’s Predators. He will be joined by Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3) who will play “an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer”.
From Heat Vision:
Written by Rodriguez, Alex Litvak and Michael Finch, the script follows a group of elite warrior-types who are being hunted by members of a race of merciless alien trackers called Predators.
Brody is a man who ends up inheriting the mantle of leader and is known as a hunter of men.
Shooting begins next month in Hawaii then moves to moves to Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin. The movie is slated for a July 9, 2010, release.
Variety also say that Adrian Brody and his reps lobbied hard for the role, probably because we’ve never seen him in a movie like Predators before. It could open up a few more doors for him. Brody has also signed on for more movies, should the first one become a success. I guess he doesn’t die then?
