Benicio Del Toro may join the ranks of actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny Glover and Adrien Brody as a prime target of the Predator.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is in talks to star in Shane Black‘s upcoming The Predator. Like Brody in Predators, Del Toro’s part is said to be an anchor for an ensemble cast.
Previously, Black said he was toying with the name “Quinn Mackenna” for the lead part in a story set in the near-present. Well, when Black clarified that a few months ago, he said “which is to say, 2018 … We’re on earth, the time is now.” Of course, names are easily changed, so it remains to be seen if Del Toro will be “Quinn” or someone else.
Production is expected to begin in February 2017.
