Report: “Predators” writers set to write for new “Masters of the Universe” movie…

Sony Pictures is still moving forward with the “Masters of the Universe” reboot. They have hired Mike Finch and Alex Litvak, who wrote the script for Robert Rodriguez’s “Predators” to write for “Masters of the Universe”.  The film will be about He-Man battling against Skeletor on his home planet of Eternia.

More on it here:

Glad the film is moving forward. Now they need to start casting. They would probably go for a younger guy to play He-Man but who should play He-Man and who should play Skeletor? For a He-Man they would need a built and muscular actor. I think they would go for someone from WWE or UFC.

If they can actually get Dolph for He-Man again, that would be very surprising. I don’t think they would go for Dolph again but it would be kind of cool though.

Adrien Brody on the set of Predators and a few other pics…

Robert Rodriguez has finally started filming, “Predators”. Here is a pic of Adrien Brody on set. I used to be worried of Adrien taking over Arnold’s place, but to my surprise, I actually like it so far. Adrien has a good look for this role. Maybe he does has what it takes to be a tough guy badass after all? I’ll wait for a teaser trailer first and then I’ll make my decision if I want to see this in theater or not. In the background if you look closely you notice the original Stan Winston predator. So this might be a great movie after all!

See the rest of the pics here:

In defense of Adrien Brody for “Predators”…

Ever since the news was broke yesterday that Adrien Brody is starring the leading role in “Predators” as the film’s main action star, this idea is getting a lot of negativity and hate, as expected. I’m sure Robert Rodriguez expected a backlash on his choice of Adrien Brody, too.

Hey, even I said I’m not that big of a fan of his acting. Just because you don’t like his previous films in the past, does not mean he’s going to suck in this one.

Of course, most movie fans would want muscles and full of steroid action stars to be in “Predators”. Robert wanted a different idea. Robert wanted a guy with no action movie experience, so he went for a guy with acting talent. I don’t like Adrien’s acting eithier, but like him or not, Adrien has the skills. He is a talented actor. Robert clearly wanted a guy with acting talent, and not only being a tough guy badass.

Does Adrien have what it takes to be a toughguy badass? YES! He maybe getting a lot of hate now, but I think Adrien will not dissapoint “Predator” and action movie fans.

The reason for the hate on the choice of Adrien Brody is because he’s never done a sci-fi/action movie before, he’s mostly known as a drama star, and think he doesn’t have the potential to be an action movie star.

Hell, we all thought the same with Matt Damon when he was first announced he was doing the Bourne series. We all thought he didn’t have what it takes to be an action star, and Matt Damon was successful and delivered the Bourne films.

The same can happen with Adrien in “Predators”.

I have never seen, “The Pianist”, but I have seen him in the “King Kong” remake. “King Kong” was kind of like an action movie, almost.

If Robert had an action movie tough guy like Stallone, Dolph, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, The Rock, etc. play the lead in “Predators”, that would be silly and boring. Sci-fi action flicks that stars muscle action stars is getting old and boring.

I think Adrien’s the right guy, he’s perfect. This will indeed give him more opportunities to star in many more action flicks ahead after he’s done with “Predators”. Remember, a drama actor just don’t want to star in drama films his entire career.

I always saw Adrien Brody being an action movie kind of guy and I think he can pull it off. I think Robert Rodriguez is going to make this an awesome movie. Looking forward to seeing how he’s going to do it. I’m sure Robert will speak out soon on why he has chosen, Adrien Brody.

Just give Adrien a chance, I think he will deliver a great performance, doing his own action stunts and all.

BREAKING NEWS: Adrien Brody to star the lead in “Predators”!!!

Robert Rodriguez is helming the upcoming “Predators” movie, which will be released by 20th Century Fox and seems that Rodriguez found the film’s leading star.

Oscar winner, Adrien Brody, is set to star the lead in, “Predators”. While he is mostly known as a drama star, this will give him the opportunity to make him known as an action star as well. Brody will be playing a character similar to Arnold’s, Dutch from the first “Predator” film.

Variety Reports:

Look like Adrien will have to start working out in the gym and bulk up a bit for this role. He won’t be no Arnold since he is a skinny guy, but Adrien should at least look fit and tough for this role if he’s really going for it. I’m sure he would get in shape for this role.

I’m not sure if I like this choice, I’m not a fan of this guy’s acting but hey ya never know, maybe Adrien can actually deliver this film.

Report: Robert Rodriguez’s “Predators” director found, it is Nimrod Antal…and Brock doesn’t want Stallone in the leading role in this…

Well, it looks like Robert Rodriguez himself won’t be directing the, “Predators” reboot. Turns out Robert got a different guy by the name of Nimrod Antal. Nimrod’s most well known film is titled, “Vacancy” that starred Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson.

If you look in the AICN talkback, they are talking about who will star the lead in, “Predators”.

See it here:

Most of the talkbackers in that link are begging for Sly Stallone to star the lead in, “Predators”. Sorry to say, but even though I’m such a huge fanatic of Sly, I don’t want Sly in “Predators”. It doesn’t fit him. “Predator” belongs to Arny.

Robert Rodriguez has been saying he’s been trying to get Arny in the lead as Dutch again, so maybe they are saving this film for when Arny is all done with politics. I think Dutch needs to return. I fucking loved the first, “Predator” film, it was an amazing flick and I would love for Dutch to return.

If Arny says no and turns it down, here are my picks of the leading role: Matt Damon, Dwayne Johnson, Antonio Banderas, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, and Michelle Rodriguez if they pick a female lead.

Report: Robert Rodriguez is writing and directing, “Predators”…also Arnold returning as Dutch might be a possibility…

AICN spoke with Robert Rodriguez himself in an exclusive interview. Rodriguez just denied the rumours that he isn’t writing and directing, confirmed that he is. He says he plans to make the new “Predators” similar to the first one.

Is Rodriguez saving this movie until Arny is through with being governor? Could Arny come back as Dutch in the next one? If so, that would be fucking cool! Rodriguez says he’ll see what happens to get Arny back, so never say never! 🙂

I also think it would be cool if Danny Glover will return too. Wouldn’t it be badass to see Dutch and Lt. Mike Harrigan to team up? Hell yeah, I loved both “Predator” films.

Thought: About Rodriguez’s “Predators” reboot, could Rose McGowan land the leading role?

I’ve been thinking about Robert Rodriguez’s reboot of “Predators” that’s just been announced. I’m sure everyone is wanting a big mean tough guy to land the leading role, but I think this is going to get a female lead. Don’t be surprised if Rose McGowan, (who is Rodriguez’s real life girlfriend) to land the leading role in “Predators”, the female star could battle these alien creatures herself.

After all, “Alien vs. Predator 1 and 2” both have a female lead and this new “Predators” will probably get the same thing.

Don’t immediately assume that Rodriguez will sign a tough male actor for this one ’cause I’m pretty sure he’s got Rose McGowan in mind. I’m betting your money that McGowan will get this.

Kev

Edit to add: On a side note, I just learned after I posted this that Robert Rodriguez is NOT directing and NOT writing the script, he’s only producing. Still though, Rodriguez could reccomend the film crew to get Rose McGowan as the female lead, just like he did with the “Red Sonja” remake.

See the article on it here:

Report: Robert Rodriguez is doing “Predator” reboot…er, I mean, “Predators”, that is…

Film director Robert Rodriguez has been confirmed to reboot, the Predator series, with the next film being titled, “Predators”. Which means the good guys will be battling a whole army of Predator aliens. Not just one.

They can’t bring Schwarzenegger back as Dutch and Danny Glover can’t return either, which is a bummer, but Rodriguez will probably bring in another big name star.

AICN exclusively breaks the news:

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/40865

My choices of who should star the lead in the new “Predators”? It shouldn’t be Stallone, I don’t think Stallone would be a good fit honestly.

If anybody, I’m willing to bet that Rodriguez will get either Antonio Banderas or Bruce Willis. Rodriguez usually gets actors that he’s already worked with in the past. Either one of them sounds fine to me.
