Danny Trejo The First Actor Confirmed For Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Predators’

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Predator

Back in April, it was confirmed that Sin City director Robert Rodriguez was going to be bringing us a new take on the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Predator. The new vision will be called Predators, and strangely, people were pretty excited about the news instead of the traditional angry response to remake announcements (just goes to show you how much a great and respected director’s name can make a difference). After many rumors swirled as to who would direct the movie, it was announced that it would be Nimród Antal, a semi-newcomer who helmed Vacancy and the upcoming Armored.

Any sort of remake or sequel to a Schwarzenegger movie immediately brings with it talk off the Governor himself making a cameo, but aside from this, we had no actual casting info or rumors until now. While speaking to Punch Drunk Critic, star of the recently-wrapped Machete, Danny Trejo, either shared or let slip that he would be doing Predators next, and that it would be getting started in about a month. No details on who he might be playing in the movie or if any other names had been cast, but all the same, an exciting first name to be cast.

All we really know about the movie is that instead of being here, it will be set on a Predator planet, and that there is going to be a lot of the creatures, not just one of them. Rodriguez wants it to be unique in itself, saying “Aliens was a different take on the Alien idea, and an original movie in it’s own right, and that’s what we want to do with this.”

Be sure to head over to Punch Drunk Critic above to see a video of the interview where Trejo briefly talks Machete and Sin City 2 as well!
