We here at Cinelinx have written more than a few articles about the Shane Black helmed The Predator film. While we’ve gotten release dates here and here the news on the writers and director here but finally we get some casting news and it’s a big one. The Hollywood Reporter reports that actor Benicio Del Toro is in talks to play the lead character of the upcoming film.

Now the studio had no comment and this is merely a rumor so we’ll be following for confirmation. Del Toro would bring some real star power to this movie and he’s done so much great work in the past. Now February 2017 is the release date planned for the movie at this time. As more details become available we’ll have it right here.
