Topher Grace is in negotiations, while Alice Braga, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, Walt Goggins and UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov are reportedly already in.

One major casting news has rushed in for "Predators". The Hollywood Reporter (THR) has recently come up with the story that Academy Award-winning actor Adrien Brody has been set to star. His character has been described as a heroic mercenary who happens to be the leader of the group hunted by the Predators.

Joining him in the cast ensemble are Alice Braga, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, Walton Goggins and UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov. Braga will take on the tough female killer, Ali will be a man who is not afraid to die, Goggins is set to be the loose canon of the group, and Taktarov is to portray an ex-Russian special ops agent.

Beside Brody and those four, "Spider-Man 3" baddie Topher Grace has also been reported in talks to join the project. Should the negotiation go according to plan, he will carry out an accountant-type character whose unassuming facade masks a dangerous serial killer.

To be directed by "Vacancy" helmer Nimrod Antal, "Predators" is 20th Century Fox's reboot of the sci-fi franchise. Robert Rodriguez produces along with Elizabeth Avellan, in addition to penning the script with Alex Litvak and Michael Finch. Danny Trejo had been cast earlier as Cuchillo.

Filming begins in November in Hawaii, before moving to Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin. The movie, which story centers on a group of elite warrior-types who are being hunted by members of a race of merciless alien trackers called Predators, targets a July 9, 2010 U.S. release.
