First look at Robert Rodriguez's bloody, violent Predators

We're as interested as you are in any info about the plot of next summer's Robert Rodriguez-scripted Predators reboot. Today we got some tidbits from our friends at the Latino Review, who got a chance to read a 90-page script dated July 12, 2009 and shared some of that insider info with the rest of us. The draft is a "bloody, violent, Hard-R script" that pits a team of seven kidnapped humans against Predators on the aliens' home planet. Reportedly, the team of seven are:
  • Royce, a Steve McQueen type
  • Cuchillo, a Mexican enforcer for a drug cartel who has twin uzis strapped to his back
  • Nikolai, a bear of a Russian armed with a four-barrel gas-powered rotary machine gun
  • Isabelle, a French woman armed with a sniper rifle
  • Stans, a San Quentin prisoner with a shaved head, armed with a prison-made knife
  • Mombasa, an African member of the Sierra Leone death squad
  • Hanzo, a Yakuza enforcer
  • Edwin, an unassuming man who was formerly on the FBI's most-wanted list.
We can't want to see them in action on the screen next year, but until then, check out Latino Review for more details.
