Benicio Del Toro in Talks for 'The Predator' Reboot
Benicio Del Toro is lined up for a starring role in the upcoming Predator reboot, reports THR.
Shane Black directs the new film, which is being overseen by 20th Century Fox. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon are producing. Fred Dekker penned the script with a revision by Black. Production is slated for February 2017, a year out from release.
