Look Out, Aliens! Benicio del Toro to Star in ‘Predator’ Reboot

With some reboots, we groan and roll our eyes. They end up being either just a grab for money, or else the original is so good, we’d rather the studios not tarnish the name by creating something bad. However, we’ve got to admit we’re kind of excited about the Predator reboot, which is rumored to be starring Benicio del Toro.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the plot is under wraps, but that it will be “an ensemble pice anchored by the character to be played by Benicio del Toro.”

Apparently del Toro has been in talks for months now to star in the project, but del Toro has had too busy of a filming schedule to work it in. Now, however, they are planning on beginning shooting in February.

The original Predator, as fans well remember, was jam packed with some favorite muscle-men of the 1980s. Arnold Schwarzenegger starred as Dutch alongside Carl Weathers and Jesse Ventura.
