Benecio Del Toro is having a career renaissance this year. After falling off the silver screen after the not-so-well received horror film Wolfman (2010), Del Toro started to bounce back into our hearts thanks to a mid-credits scene featured in the unexpected Marvel juggernaut, Thor: The Dark World (2013). It was recently announced on Variety Magazine that Del Toro will help reboot the Predator franchise.
The Usual Suspects star doled out great performances in Escobar: Paradise Lost (2014) and Sicario (2015), the latter of which many thought he should have received an Oscar nomination. Last year he was also the voice of the snake in The Little Prince.
Del Toro will also keep things in the Disney family by starring in another franchise film for their subsidiary, Lucasfilm. He will be in Star Wars: Episode VIII, in an unspecified as yet role, alongside Lupita Nyong’o and Oscar Isaac in 2017. That same year he will be in the Terrence Malick film Weightless with former batman star Christian Bale.
The Predator is expected to hit theatres in 2018.
