Unfortunately for Predator fans, Benicio Del Toro recently had to drop out of Shane Black's upcoming fourth entry in the franchise. Fortunately, Fox already has a plan to replace the actor. According to a new report, Narcos star Boyd Holbrook is being eyed by the studio to step into the role that Benicio Del Toro was set to take on.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Benicio Del Toro had to depart Predator 4. Shortly thereafter, they reported that Boyd Holbrook would be trying to fill those very big shoes. Benicio Del Toro is clearly a bigger star than Boyd Holbrook, but his star power is rising, having starred in Gone Girl as well as the Netflix hit series Narcos. He will get a real boost next year when the Wolverine movie Logan comes out, which Boyd Holbrook plays the villain in.
Details have been incredibly scarce for The Predator, »
Writer/director Shane Black is currently working on The Predator, the fourth entry in the Predator franchise. Even though the big budget production should be starting any time now, details have been incredibly scarce. It may not be much, but we have just learned what the working title for The Predator will be.
Comicbook.com uncovered the working title for the movie, which is being called Ollie. For those who may not know, a working title is just an unofficial title used during the production of a movie that sometimes offers clues to the movie itself. In the case of Ollie, it is pretty difficult to speculate what, if anything, that means for The Predator. Really, it just means we are one step closer, albeit a small step, to this movie becoming a reality.
To say that we know nothing about the new Predator movie wouldn't quite be fair. To »

If it wasn’t for Chinese box-office returns, Duncan Jones‘ break into big-budget spectacle might have been for naught, career-wise, but Warcraft could prove a worthwhile exertion for whatever role it ultimately played in getting his passion project, Mute, off the ground. (We happened to enjoy the fantasy picture more than most, anyway.) Almost a year after Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgård joined its cast and not long after Netflix announced its handling of distribution, the picture’s started shooting — and, per Variety, has added Justin Theroux in an undisclosed role.
Details on his involvement will remain mum for now, though we’ve known for some time that Mute is set in Berlin circa 2052 and concerns Leo Beiler (Skarsgård), a mute bartender caught in a noir-esque, Blade Runner-inspired plot as he searches for a missing girlfriend. Two American surgeons (one is played by Rudd; can we assume Theroux fills the second part? »

Fox is working on a new reboot of Predator, as you know. They've hired actor-writer-director Shane Black to helm the project, and just yesterday it was reported that the project bears the goofy codename Ollie. Today there's more news, and it's far more interesting than that codename. For a time, Benicio Del Toro was in talks to star in the film- which is rumored to be called The Predator when it arrives in theaters- but now it's come to pass that he has walked away from the negotiations. So who is Fox looking at now that the Sicario star has departed? A star from another project about drug cartels, Narcos.
THR also says that Fox is aware »

About one month ago, it was reported that Benicio Del Toro was in early talks with 20th Century Fox to star in Shane Black's The Predator. While THR reveals that Del Toro is no longer lined up for the project, another actor is now being pursued for the lead role.
According to THR, Boyd Holbrook is in talks to star in The Predator. Holbrook has been a very busy actor over the last several years, appearing in The Skeleton Twins, A Walk Among the Tombstones, Gone Girl, Run All Night, and Morgan. He's perhaps best known for playing Steve Murphy on the Netflix series Narcos, and he'll play the villain opposite Hugh Jackman in the upcoming Wolverine movie, Logan.
Del Toro's packed schedule reportedly prevented him from joining the cast of The Predator, which at one point was slated to start filming in February of 2017.
The Predator is scheduled for a February 9th, »

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Benicio del Toro will no longer star in Predator, Shane Black's highly anticipated reboot/sequel. Reasons for his sudden departure are unknown, but the trade points out that 20th Century Fox always struggled during negotiations due to the actor's commitments to a number of other projects. Despite changing the production start date for him, scheduling clashes remained an issue, hence why he'll no longer be battling aliens in the highly anticipated release. It's not all bad news though as Boyd Holbrook has been brought in to replace him. The actor isn't as well known, but has impressed audiences across two seasons of Narcos and will soon be seen on the big screen as the villainous Donald Pierce in Logan. While a plan is in place to beef up the supporting cast with some bigger names, the studio is clearly happy with his work there »

Variety is reporting that Narcos star Boyd Holbrook will be replacing Benicio del Toro in Fox’s The Predator due to scheduling difficulties with del Toro. Holbrook is already working with Fox, having already filmed the villainous role of Donald Pierce in Fox’s anticipated final Wolverine film, Logan.
Plot details are scarce for Black’s The Predator, written by Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad, RoboCop 3), but Black has said his crack at the long running property is going to have touches of noir, comedy, lots of scares and will be an “event film.” Black’s latest film, The Nice Guys, was one of »
“Narcos” star Boyd Holbrook is in talks to star in Fox’s reboot of the 1987 sci-fi action flick “Predator,” TheWrap has learned. Benicio Del Toro was reportedly circling the role, but his participation in the film was never confirmed. And as it turns out, it’s not going to happen after all, as Fox has decided to go with Holbrook, who will play antagonist Donald Pierce in the upcoming Fox X-Men movie, “Logan.” Shane Black, who had a small role in the 1987 film, is directing the movie, which hasn’t released plot details yet. Fred Dekker wrote the script. Producing are John Davis, »

“Narcos” star Boyd Holbrook is coming on board Fox’s “The Predator,” a reboot of the “Predator” alien action franchise that launched in 1987. He’s in negotiations to replace Benicio del Toro, who was in talks for the project, but fell out due to scheduling issues.
Shane Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original — are producing with hopes to begin shooting next year. Fox has already slotted “The Predator” for a Feb. 9, 2018, opening.
Plot details are under wraps. The original was directed by John McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, and Jesse Ventura as commandos attempting to rescue hostages while being stalked in a jungle in Central America by a fearsome extra-terrestrial, played by Kevin Peter Hall.

How important is a title? At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter what a movie is called, so long as the content is strong, right? That may be true, but despite that, having a title on hand as a fan may give some real insight into what we can expect in the film itself: the tone, the style, the character -- all can be inferred from a simple title.
And then we have working titles. These are temporary titles used during a movie's development, or during the actual production. In essence, they're a way for a production company to bill for a project without actually committing to a name. Oftentimes, they contain inside jokes, or may be a reference to some core aspect of the film itself. Perhaps the most famous of working titles was that of Blue Harvest, the working title for Return of the Jedi. »

A new multi-picture agreement has been reached by 20th Century Fox and IMAX Corporation that will ensure Alita: Battle Angel, The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Shane Black’s Predator reboot and an as-yet-untitled Marvel movie from Fox will all be released via the large-screen format over the coming years.
Extending their long-term partnership on the heels of Deadpool‘s massive success, Coming Soon notes that each release is set to be digitally remastered to suit the IMAX format upon entering the post-production process. It’ll be some time before that happens, of course, given all of the above are simmering on the fringes of development.
Following a long layoff due to injury, Dylan O’Brien will return to spearhead filming on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure come February, while Robert Rodriguez’s long-in-development Alita: Battle Angel will finally be summoned before the cameras next month. The jury’s still out on The Predator, »

With Jean-Claude Van Damme hitting the big screen this month in Kickboxer: Vengeance (a remake of his 1989 smash hit) we decided to find out who is the greatest of the legendary Eighties action heroes. Who kicked hardest, fought longest and has the staying power to be the last man standing? Let the fight begin!
Evidence: Sylvester Stallone is not only an enduring action star of note – from Rambo and Rocky, Cobra to Cliffhanger, right through to The Expendables, Sly has always set the box office cash tills ringing; but he is also an Oscar-nominated writer, a director, and even a painter. There is, it seems, very little he cannot do.
Verdict: Stallone is more rennaisance man than action hero king.

Shane Black’s The Nice Guys starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe is set to arrive on both DVD & Blu-ray this coming Monday, September 26th, and to celebrate the release of this hilarious buddy cop comedy from Icon Film Distribution we’ve got a 1970’s style trailer to get you in the mood for the movie.
Holland March (Ryan Gosling – The Big Short, La La Land) is a wise-cracking, down-on-his-luck private eye in 1977 Los Angeles, and a useless single parent to sweet and sassy daughter, Holly, who takes care of him. Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe – Man Of Steel, The Mummy) is a hired enforcer and debt collector who hurts people for a living. Fate turns them into unlikely partners after a young woman named Amelia (Margaret Qualley – TV’s The Leftovers) mysteriously disappears following the production of her ‘experimental artistic film’. Healy and March soon learn the hard way that »
Currently titled The Predator, this will be the fourth in the series featuring the invisible, bloodthirsty alien, which was put on the map by the 1987 original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. (There are also two crossover Alien vs Predator films, released in 2004 and 2007.)

It’s coming up to 30 years since the iconic Predator locked horns with a young Arnold Schwarzenegger. While the Austrian Oak’s fortunes have varied of late, his former opponent is set for another round of hunt the human… and this time the brooding presence of Benicio del Toro could be brought into play.
20th Century Fox are reportedly keen to sign the Usual Suspects star for fresh entry The Predator. Action supremo Shane Black is on board to direct. Black appeared in the original flick in a supporting role and the nostalgia trip doesn’t end there. The script bears the name of Eighties legend Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad) and one man blockbuster machine Joel Silver (Die Hard, Lethal Weapon) is one of the producers.

The new Predator film - still going by the title of The Predator - continues to inch forward, and there’s a big new piece of casting news for the movie. The sequel is set to add Benicio Del Toro to its cast, presumably once he’s done with Sicario follow-up Soldado. At this stage, the identity of Del Toro's role hasn't been disclosed.
Furthermore, the full cast for the new movie remains unknown – although Arnold Schwarzenegger has, natch, been linked with an appearance – but we do know who’s writing and directing. Shane Black is in the director’s chair (following this year’s The Nice Guys), whilst Fred Dekker has penned the screenplay.
More news on the new Predator as we hear it. The movie is due in cinemas in early 2018...
Benicio Del Toro (Gotg, Sicario, Star Wars: Episode VIII) is in negotiations to star in Iron Man 3 director Shane Black's upcoming reboot of the Predator franchise, which is currently being dubbed The Predator. No plot details yet, but according to THR the movie will be "an ensemble piece anchored by the character to be played by Del Toro." Though there's still nothing concrete, speculation persists that Arnold Schwarzenegger might return for a cameo. The recent rumor that James Franco might be in line for a role isn't mentioned. The Predator is set to hit theatres on February 9, 2018. »
