Adrien Brody will tackle Predators

Topher Grace is considering a role…

Here's a casting move we're not sure we saw coming: Adrien Brody has agreed to star in Predators.

He'll take the role of a hunter who ends up the hunted - and must lead a group of fellow elite warrior folk when they all become targets for the aliens.

Topher Grace is also pondering a role as a low-key accountant type who also happens to be a serial killer.

Already committed are Alice Braga as a tough gal warrior, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali as a man with nothing to lose, Danny Trejo is Cuchillo, a fighter who totes twin uzis and The Shield's Walton Goggins as a loose cannon.

And because no film these days is complete without an Ultimate Fighting competitor, Oleg Taktarov is an ex-Russian special ops agent.

Nimrod Antal is ready to start shooting in Hawaii next month, then the production will shift to producer Robert Rodriguez' Troublemaker Studios in Texas.

Let's hope that gives Brody the time to work out enough to become a badass…

      If the talent vacuum that is Topher Grace gets a role then this film has gone from near the top of my films to watch next year to the bottom.

      This movie will blow. Just as every other Predator did after the first one. I can't understand why Hollywood wont let this franchise go... Ultimately this is a very risky role for Brody. I always looked at him as someone who took quality roles. For shame!

      Oh dear.... I always rated Adrien Brody as an actor who was fussy about what he appears in... seems I was wrong.

      Well, Brody has been sniffing under Superman's cape while being barked at by Bob Hoskins, and he tackled King Kong... so, in that light, what's a few Predators, heh? JJ
