Adrien Brody is the new â€˜Dutchâ€™ â€“ well, kinda.
The Oscar Winner has snagged the lead role in director Nimrod Antalâ€™s â€œPredatorsâ€, according to Variety.
Youâ€™d think director Antal and producer Robert Rodriguez wouldâ€™ve had to have twisted the actorâ€™s arm to appear in such a flick â€“ but seems thatâ€™s not the case. Proof that his share price has slipped a little in the last few years, it was actually Brody (â€œKing Kongâ€, â€œThe Thin Red Lineâ€) that chased the role, requesting his agents nag the shit out of the Austin-based filmmaker until they caved in.
Alice Braga (â€œI Am Legendâ€), Danny Trejo (â€œMacheteâ€), Walt Goggins (â€œThe Shieldâ€), Oleg Taktarov (â€œ15 Minutesâ€™), Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (â€œThe Curious Case of Benjamin Buttonâ€), and Louiz Ozawa (â€œGiganticâ€) have also been added to the cast. (Thereâ€™s also a chance Arnold Schwarzenegger may appear as cigar-chompinâ€™ Dutch in the film).
In the film, a group of mercenaries â€“ captured by the Predators â€“ are forced to survive not only the harsh Jungle terrain of the Predatorâ€™s home planet, but the inhabitants themselves.
Fox is planning for â€œPredatorsâ€ to be the first in a long-line of new Man vs. Monster movies, with Brody contracted to sequels.
â€œPredatorsâ€, due July 9, 2010, is about to get underway on location in Hawaii and at producer Robert Rodriguezâ€™s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.
Update! The Hollywood Reporter has further details on the characters that Brody & co will be playing :
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.
Braga is the tough female killer. Ali is a man not afraid to die, Goggins is the loose canon of the group and Taktarov is a former Russian special ops agent.
Trejo, already cast, is Cuchillo, a hardened warrior with twin uzis strapped to his back.
