Adrien Brody in Predators

In a weird bit of casting news, Variety reports that Adrien Brody has signed on for the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed upcoming action reboot Predators. Brody will play the main role, the leader of a human group dropped onto the home planet of the Predators and forced to survive.

In another bit of WTF news, The Hollywood Reporter is claiming Topher Grace is close to signing as a dangerous serial killer with an unassuming air about him. I'm hoping this is the turnaround Topher Grace is looking for after the clusterbomb that was Spider-Man 3: it seems like the guy might have a little talent, but I'm not sure this is the right project to showcase it. Who knows? Maybe he just wants to hang out with Adrien Brody in the jungle for a while. After seeing The Brothers Bloom again, I'd be down for that. (Although Mark Ruffalo's character was a lot cooler).

Wait, did Mark Brody's head already get decapitated in your picture? And what the hell is a serial killer doing in a movie about f*cking Predators??? What effect is he really going to have when the Pred just sets off his wristband nuke?

I think Brody will rock in whatever roll you give him. I don't think I've seen a movie I didn't like him in so I'm locked in and ready for this film. If Brody drops out though, I think this thing needs to be retooled and combine with Stallone's next Rambo project. Call it Rambo vs. the Predator Planet and give Stallone a huge knife and you'll have the biggest (and best) movie ever.

Ellen - Yeah, it's an admittedly lazy Photoshop job.

Jared - Speaking of Rambo, you know what I'm waiting for...?
