Benicio Del Toro In Talks For “Predator” Reboot

Benicio Del Toro is in early talks to star in the reboot of the “Predator” franchise at 20th Century Fox. Shane Black will direct the project after writing a treatment which his “Monster Squad” co-writer Fred Dekker has turned into a script.

Black, who played a member of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s team and the first to die at the hands of the alien hunter in the 1987 original, is expected to begin production on the project next year ahead of an early 2018 release.

Del Toro is also confirmed to be returning for the “Sicario” sequel “Soldado” which “Gomorra” director Stefano Sollima is helming.
