James Franco Sought For Black’s “Predator”?

One sort-of-sequel, sort-of-reboot in development is the Shane Black-directed new entry in the “Predator” sci-fi franchise.

Speaking on an episode of Meet The Movie Press this week, Jeff Sneider revealed a major casting rumor regarding the film – that James Franco is rumored to be in line for the lead role in the film.

The new movie is currently slated to open February 2018 which means production will likely kick off towards in a few months. So far no other actors have yet been linked beyond rumblings of Arnold Schwarzenegger potentially reprising his role from the 1987 original.

Black and his old “Monster Squad” cohort Fred Dekker are penning the script for the feature which is anticipated to have a larger budget than previous films in the series.
