Director Shane Black's The Predator has lost its main star: Actor Benicio Del Toro has dropped out of the upcoming sequel/reboot of the iconic movie franchise. But fear not! Because Fox has already lined up a Narcos star for the job.
He may have beamed off the villain role in Star Trek Into Darkness but Benicio Del Toro has just nabbed a mysterious lead role in director James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy! Question is: who is he playing?
Bad news is: Benicio Del Toro (The Wolfman) is out of the running as Star Trek's next villain. Good news is: Khan Noonien Singh will be the Big Baddie Capt. James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and the crew of the USS Enterprise will face in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Trek sequel.
Has Benicio Del Toro moved from being a wolfman to an intergalactic threat? Director J. J. Abrams may have his eye on the Oscar-winning actor to play the new bad guy in his highly anticipated Star Trek sequel.
A few short weeks ago, we told you about the rumor that J.J. Abrams had his eye on Benicio Del Toro for, perhaps, the role of the villain for his Star Trek sequel. Today, Abrams confirms he's very much interested in the Wolfman actor to get on board for the U.S.S. Enterprise's next adventure.
