There are not many details about the new Predator in the wild yet, though Black, talking at a Q&A session for The Nice Guys hosted by Empire magazine back in May, teased his ideas. "It's an attempt to 'event-ise' the Predator again," Black said. "An attempt to make it more mysterious. The Predator has been so overdone. Every couple of years, there's a knock-off churned out. Very low budget with a guaranteed return."
With Fred Dekker (RoboCop 3) also working on the script the hero is named – at least for now – Quinn McKenna, though the report on Del Toro entering talks for the movie doesn't state whether he is looking at playing the lead, or another main role.
Del Toro has been entering several science fiction worlds of late. He was The Collector in Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) and has a still mysterious role in Rian Johnson's (Looper) Star Wars: Episode VIII.
