Benicio Del Toro is in talks to star in Shane Black’s upcoming Predator reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Details are scarce, but it seems Del Toro would be playing the central character in what’s being pitched as an ensemble piece. That’s presumably the Arnold character, not the Predator character, although we have always said that Benicio would look good in dreads. If this reboot continues the trend set by the original, look for Del Toro to be elected governor of some lucky state in 2032.
