The new Predator reboot/sequel has rounding out its cast recently, and none other than Adrien Brody and Topher Grace have jumped onboard. Those are two names that I wouldn't have thought to be chosen for a project like this, much less lobby to be a part of. Although seemingly against type in terms of physicality, Brody and Grace's appearances play into their characters. Some short character descriptions reveal that "Brody is a man who ends up inheriting the mantle of leader and is known as a hunter of men. Grace would play an accountant-type whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer." While hard-core fans of the original films might be disappointed by this news, I'm actually excited for the possibilities. Both Brody and Grace bring loads of talent to the projects they choose and I'm intrigued as to how they'll function in this film. Besides, the typical muscle-bound heroes of the 1980's now seem slightly passe in our digital age.
So, whatever you feel about this casting news, I think we can all agree that it's one of the most interesting announcements to happen in awhile.
