James Franco Rumoured for Shane Black's 'The Predator'
Rumour is swirling that James Franco is being looked at for the lead role in Shane Black's Predator revival The Predator.
Reports had Black looking closely at more seasoned action stars such as Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, and Tom Hardy, but Franco seems to be the next on their list. The actor starred in 127 Hours and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
The film is eyeing an early 2018 release, and Black wants to create the same feel and tone of the original film from 1987.
