Benicio Del Toro will no longer be the lead in the new Predator remake.
The “Predator” reboot is being directed by Shane Black, who played the role of Hawkins, a commando, in the original film. Del Toro has been tied to the film since the beginning, but issues with scheduling and fluctuating shoot dates led to complications. Del Toro is currently scheduled to shoot a sequel to the action film “Sicario.”
“Predator” is currently slated for release on February 9, 2018.
