Boyd Holbrook in Talks to Replace Benicio Del Toro in new ‘Predator’ Movie

Jason McDonald

This is definitely news I don’t know how to feel about.  On one hand we’re losing Benicio Del Toro, but on the other hand we could be getting a talented young actor.  It’s a nice dilemma to have.

THR has announced that actor Benicio Del Toro is no longer involved in Shane Black’s upcoming “Predator” film.  The actor was originally attached to the film just last month when it was announced that he was in talks.  It looks like something happened between then and now to pull him away.  Could be that with his other major projects (“Star Wars”, marvel films, “Sicario” sequel, etc) coming up he just didn’t have the time.

Well in his place THR has announced that actor Boyd Holbrook is now in talks to take on the role.  For you Netflix fans out there you might recognize Holbrook from his current hit show “Narcos.”  He’s also got the upcoming super hero film “Logan” on his slate.

At this point it isn’t set in stone, but based on what THR is reporting it seems like Fox is pretty gung-ho about him being in the film.

What do you think?  Want to see the “Narcos” star take on a Predator? Let us know below.
