Predators, a bold new chapter in the Predator universe, shot under the creative auspices of Robert Rodriguez, stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who to come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet…as prey. With the notable exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers-mercenaries, Yakuza convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.
Predators also stars Topher Grace, Laurence Fishburne, Alice Braga, Laurence Fishburne, Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali. It is directed by Nimrod Antal (Armored, Vacancy).
Composer John Debney will be composing an original score for Predator. Not a hugely surprising choice as Debney has worked with Rodriguez many times in the past, including Sin City, The Adventures of Shark-Boy and Lava-Girl, and the Spy Kids films. Debney got his big break with the 1993 Disney film Hocus Pocus, and has worked mostly on comedies and family films. He composed additional music for the Spider-Man sequels, and this year red Iron Man 2.
