Mears joins Predators

Oct. 21, 2009by: Paul Tassi

Now that's more like it! After hearing that Adrien Brody and Topher Grace were set to star in Robert Rodriguez's PREDATORS we were all a bit worried. But then Danny Trejo joined the cast, which seemed a step in the right direction, and now we have another bit of news that amplifies that sentiment. Jason himself, Derek Mears, will be stomping around the alien jungles as well.

The question now is, what will he play? A Predator or a prey? Of the rumored characters in the script, I could see him as the Russian mob member, but with his previous behind-the-mask work in FRIDAY THE 13TH and THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2, I would think he's also well suited to be one of the so-called “Super Predators” in the film.

Whatever the case, it’s hard to believe that I’m actually getting this excited for a movie franchise that for all practical purposes, should be dead and buried. But with a solid director, cast and concept, it looks like it’s headed toward Awesometown, though I guess only time will tell.

Extra Tidbit: I'm actually all for Topher Grace in this movie, Brody not so much.

Wrong Order DUde

I like how joblo tottaly got the order of the cast wrong.. DANNY TREJO was the FIRST cast member to be confirmed.. He slipped during an interview with some fan boy for his website.. Adrian broady was like the 3rd person to be confirmed as a cast member.. joblo is one of the many blogs to blog about predators and tottaly give the information wrong or sound like they hate that the movie is even being made.. IDIOTS

I dont see how that guy amplifies anything. Its not like he was a very talented dude. I think Brody was a step in the right direction, showing they arent going only for muscles. Of course, if the entire cast was Brody-shaped, that would be wrong, and I dont think Topher Grace is a good idea, but Brody is.

having real actors like Brody and Grace aboard is a very good sign. and this just might be the perfect material for Rodriguez's madness.

I'm actually more comfortable with Brody than Grace.

Man, I hope this isn't another steaming pile of shit like AvP 1&2. This franchise can't take anymore films like that.

Um, did you guys forget that Oleg Taktarov is playing the Russian?

I'm betting Mears is a Predator.

I cant wait for this movie.
But I find it puzzling that one could think Topher Grace is a good choice and Brody is not. What has Topher Grace ever done to earn our confindence? Watch Jackson's King Kong and tell me Adrian Brody can't carry this type of film. Give the guy a break.

My thoughts...

Brody will save this movie from the assclown that is Topher Grace.

Also, stop referring to Mears as Jason himself. He sucked as Jason so stop giving him positive recognition for that role.

"Brody not so much."

I think the inclusion of Brody is an excellent idea. Brody will bring a
vulnerability with him, without that there's no story; the whole thing would just turn into another meat bash... I praise the producers for having the guts to go with something fresh.

Someone in Production read this please

If they get Alan Silvestri to return and do the score for this film, with that awesome theme from Predator 1 and 2, and they use again that great Predator logo, I will be totally sold for this film. That might ACTUALLY show the respect Rodriguez says he has for the franchise, and it would indeed look faithful as the Predator sequel they say it is.
