We already know that Adrien Brody and Topher Grace recently joined the cast of Robert Rodriguez’s Predators, rounding out an ensemble that includes Alice Braga as a tough female killer, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali as a man not afraid of death, Walt Goggins as a loose cannon, and UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov as an ex-Russian special ops agent. Oh, yeah, and Danny Trejo as Cuchillo, a Mexican drug cartel enforcer.

Over the weekend, actor Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees from the rebooted Friday the 13th feature) confirmed to DreadCentral that he has been cast as well. “People were talking for a couple of weeks, but I wasn’t able to confirm,” he said. “I kept assuring the filmmakers that I was not the leak. Now it’s out there, but I’m still not saying who I play.”

In the film, the group are all kidnapped by the Predators and taken to the creatures’ home world to be hunted for sport. Eventually, the human gang comes across an American, who has been hiding from the Predators for years and explains to the new “prey” what’s going on. It’s widely expected that this particular role is being reserved for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and that it is the role he played in the original Predator film, that of “Dutch”.
Predators is directed by Nimrod Antal (Vacancy) and scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 7, 2010.
