“My friends call me Murphy. You call me… RoboCop.”
Co-written and directed by Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, The Monster Squad), 1993’s RoboCop 3 is the final installment in the RoboCop trilogy, with Robert John Burke (Dust Devil) as RoboCop, replacing Peter Weller, who left the series to star in David Cronenberg’s Naked Lunch.
Following the announcement earlier this week that Game of Thrones star Alfie Allenhas joined the cast of the next Predator movie, titled The Predator, comes word that Yvonne Strahovski is also joining the cast.
Strahovski played Sarah Walker in 91 episodes of the comedy series Chuck, and has also starred in Dexter, 24: Live Another Day, and The Handmaiden’s Tale. If you’re like me, however, you best know her as Miranda Lawson from the Mass Effect games.
It’s hard to imagine anyone liking a character played by Alfie Allen. As Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones he seized Winterfell, and as Iosef Tarasov he killed John Wick’s dog.
Course, just because he plays unlikable characters doesn’t mean that it is an ongoing thing. So who knows what he’ll be playing as he has been cast in The Predator. Find out more about the character and plot of the film in the report below.
Today marks the start of production for The Predator, the fourth installment of the Predator film franchise. Director Shane Black, who also starred in the first Predator, marked the occasion by releasing an image on his Twitter account, and confirmed that his film will be rated R. More on the story below.
Just one month ago it was reported that Benicio Del Toro was in talks to lead the cast of The Predator. One of the notes on the Del Toro talks was that he and Twentieth Century Fox had gone back and forth for a while before it was announced, and that his busy schedule was a major problem to solve in making the casting possible. Now, as it turns out, Del Toro is no longer in talks for the movie. A reason for this has not yet been given, but it’s safe to assume that the very same scheduling complications are at least partly responsible.
Despite the speed bump, Fox has decided not to delay the project, instead immediately going after someone new to star. It’s now being reported that Boyd Holbrook, star of Netflix’s Narcos and a villain in the next Wolverine movie Logan, has entered into negotiations to replace Del Toro in The Predator.
