Fishburne joins Predators cast

Former Matrix star Laurence Fishburne has joined the soon-shooting re-jig of alien epic Predators .

Playing a character called Noland, we can only imagine that he was hired for his previous experience with kung-fu and action. Not to mention he’s freakin’ cool and badass as hell.

Official plot details are light, with the only info released amounting to one sentence: “A group of elite warriors are hunted by members of a merciless alien race known as Predators.”

We know from various whispers, though, that the action will be set entirely on the Predator homeworld, where warriors including Danny Trejo, Adrien Brody and, um, Topher Grace have to fight for their lives.

Vacancy director Nimród Antal is at the helm under producer Robert Rodriguez’s guiding hand.
