SCI Fi Wire has learned that Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, CSI) has joined the cast of the new Predators movie, which takes the franchise off Earth and onto a “hunting planet” on which several humans awake to find themselves as the hunted. Already in the cast are Adrien Brody (King Kong), Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3), Walton Goggins (The Shield) and Danny Trejo (The Grind, and pretty much every other Robert Rodriguez production, who is producing Predators). Nimród Antal (Vacancy) is directing.
Another DVD release this Tuesday is Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, the latest in the merged franchises, picking up where Alien vs. Predator left off. This bloody slugfest will be out in two versions – the theatrical version and an unrated version (with some additional extras), plus the Blu-Ray version will have both. If you don’t have some of the other movies in either franchise, check our Sci-Fi Movies store for some different packages. Read More for a review of AVP-R.
